New Delhi: Former President of India, Hon’ble Shri Pranab Mukherjee awarded ‘QS I-Gauge GOLD Rating’ to Manav Rachna University during the pilot event of Higher Education Rating System QS I-Gauge in New Delhi. The award was received by Dr. Sanjay Srivastava, Vice Chancellor, Manav Rachna University.
Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) is India’s first nationwide Higher Education Rating System.
QS I-GAUGE ratings have been modeled after the QS 5 Stars international rating but have been adapted to capture the reality of the dynamic Indian higher education sector, while at the same time maintaining the strict quality standards that are equal with the QS brand. The system consists of seven primary indicators and five secondary indicators, ranging from Teaching and Learning, Employability, Social Responsibility to Research and Innovation.
In his address, Shri Pranab Mukherjee said: “Our higher educational institutes and their students should now emphasize upon research-based studies instead of looking for high earning jobs.”
While receiving the award, Dr. Sanjay Srivastava said: “This QS I-GAUGE Gold Star Rating for Manav Rachna University is testimony to our focus on quality education, research and innovation eco-system over the years.”
