Indian institutions rank low among world universities
Indian higher educational institutions have continued to perform poorly in international rankings this year. The recently released 2012-2013 QS World University Rankings, like the previously released 2011-2012 Times Higher Education Rankings, includes not one Indian institution, not even the IITs or IIMs, in its Top 200 list. Additionally, only five Indian institutes score within the Top 700. In contrast, each of the other BRIC nations has at least one university in the Top 200, with China securing seven placements. The QS rankings are developed on an analysis of six indicators that value international reputation and international student and faculty exchange.
