Indian educational centres on global ranking list


Known for its ranking of higher education, Times Higher Education (THE), has decided to look into an India-specific indicator, which would act as a framework for stakeholders of global education and foreign students to decide educational institutes of India.

Ashok Thakur, Higher Education Secretary disclosed this in the Union Human Resource Development Ministry.

India-specific indicator is expected to attend to the Indian course structural differences that prevails in the Indian institutions. The institutions of India are not doing well on both THE and QS ranking list, partly due to Indian course structures.

Additionally, to give data to the ranking agencies, a nodal officer for respective genres will be at all centrally-funded institutions, whether they are the universities, Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) or the National Institutes of Technology (NITs).

As an attempt to integrate with the global education market is being made by India, rankings have assumed significance. Although, the IIMs, IITs, All India Institute of Medical Sciences and few of the Central and State universities have given the leading lights in their particular fields world over; these institutions sill do not take the higher spots on the ranking list.

The IIMs and IITs are witnessing a "reverse brain drain" as many emigrants are coming back to these institutions as members of faculty, according to Mr. Thakur.
