Author(s): Tushar Kanti Ghara
Abstract: The complex, dynamic and multi-faceted quality of higher education institutions (HEIs) has been a consistent criticism of university rankings. Ranking of universities by different methodology may give different relative positions of HEIs. Two methods namely QS and U-Map have been considered for 656 Indian universities with defining index for each university using principal component analysis. The universities have been grouped into different categories. The distribution over states and locations have also been studied. The correlation between two methods of ranking has also been calculated.
