Indian universities shine in QS Asia Rankings 2024: IIT Bombay secures 40th position

The 2024 World University Ranking: Asia by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) is out. The latest edition of the rankings features 148 Indian universities, an all-time high, and the largest representation for any single country. India has outpaced China, with its 133 universities, and Japan, which has 96 universities. Last year, India had 118 universities on the list. In total, 856 universities are listed in the rankings. 

These institutions are assessed based on various criteria, including global recognition, research capabilities, teaching resources, and internationalization. QS, a UK-based company specializing in evaluating higher education institutions worldwide, uses 10 key indicators to rank institutions: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty-student ratio, international relations network, citations per paper, papers per faculty, staff with Ph.D. qualifications, international faculty, international students, and outbound exchange students.

Among Indian universities, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay has secured the top spot with the 40th rank.
