Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham among THE’s top 100 rankings

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham broke into the top 100  of the latest Times Higher Education’s (THE’s) Emerging Economies University Rankings 2020. This year, like in 2015, 11 Indian universities ranked among the top 100.

While it retained its top position among Indian varsities, Indian Institute of Science-Bangalore fell by two places to 16, followed by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Kharagpur and IIT-Bombay at 32nd and 34th positions.

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham moved up a massive 51 places from a joint 141 in 2019. According to THE, Amrita declared improvements in almost all the ranking metrics, compared to 2019. Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is one of the participating universities in the Ministry of Human Resources Development’s Institutes of Eminence scheme, which was established in 2017 to influence the ranking data.

The other universities included in the Institutes of Eminence scheme that appear in the top 100 mark the biggest improvers in the ranking, with IIT-Kharagpur moving up 23 places to 32, IIT-Delhi climbed 28 places to a joint 38, while IIT-Madras rose 12 places to a joint 63. Both IIT-Ropar and Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, on the other hand, marked their debut with joint 63rd and joint 73rd positions in the top 100.

The Institutes of Eminence scheme provides participating universities with government funding and greater autonomy with the aim of moving them into the top 100 of the world university rankings, including THE’s World University Ranking, over time.

The government expects to achieve this through a number of changes, including an increase in foreign students and staff, offering online courses, and encouraging academic collaboration with top universities around the world.

“There has long been a debate on the success of Indian universities in world rankings, and for too long they have been seen as underperforming on the global stage. The Emerging Economies University Rankings 2020 suggests that real progress is being made by a number of institutions in a number of metrics across our robust methodology, and could mark an exciting turning point for Indian higher education, enabled in part by the Institutes of Eminence scheme,” said Phil Baty, chief knowledge officer, THE.
