| Updated: April 13, 2024 15:46

The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad has been ranked among the top 25 institutions worldwide for business and management studies, according to the latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings by Subject. Fellow IIMs in Bangalore and Calcutta also made their mark, securing positions among the top 50.

The QS rankings, unveiled on Wednesday, April 10, revealed that Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi is the highest-ranked university in India. JNU has achieved the 20th position globally for development studies, as per the London-based higher education analytics firm.

Jessica Turner, CEO of QS, highlighted the challenges faced by India in providing high-quality tertiary education amidst soaring demand. She referred to the ambitious target set by India’s 2020 National Education Policy (NEP) of achieving a 50 per cent gross enrolment ratio by 2035. Turner noted that the number of Indian programmes featured across QS’s 55 subject rankings and five broad faculty areas has increased this year, from 355 to 454.

Turner also acknowledged the progress made by several programmes at India’s three privately run Institutes of Eminence this year. She emphasised the positive impact of well-regulated private provision on enhancing India’s higher education sector. Despite the need for further improvements in standards, access to higher education, digital readiness of universities and global competitiveness, Turner affirmed that India is making significant strides in the right direction.

The Saveetha Institute of Medical and Technical Sciences in Chennai has also gained global recognition, ranking among the top 25 institutions worldwide for dentistry studies.

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati has secured impressive global rankings in data science (51-70) and petroleum engineering (51-100).

The QS report indicates that India has made significant progress, with a 20 per cent improvement in the Citations per Paper indicator, reflecting robust research capabilities.

India is emerging as one of the world’s most rapidly expanding research centres. From 2017 to 2022, its research output surged by an impressive 54 per cent, based on data from Scopus/Elsevier, QS’s bibliometric and research affiliate.

Ben Sowter, QS’s senior vice-president, stated that India is now the world’s fourth-largest producer of research in terms of volume, generating 1.3 million academic papers in this period. It trails only behind China’s 4.5 million, the United States’ 4.4 million and is slightly less than the United Kingdom’s 1.4 million.

In the 2024 QS World University Rankings by Subject, India holds the second spot in Asia in terms of the number of universities featured (69), trailing only mainland China (101). It also holds the fourth position in the total number of ranked entries (454), following China (1,041), Japan (510) and South Korea (499).
