NIRF Ranking 2017 – SIU placed 9th if only median salary of 2 YR POST GRADUATE STUDENTS is considered !

National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) is a methodology adopted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, to rank all institutions of higher education in India.

This framework of NIRF outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. The methodology draws from the overall recommendations broad understanding arrived by a Core Committee set up by MHRD, to identify the broad parameters for ranking various universities and institutions. The parameters broadly cover Teaching, Learning and Resources,Research and Professional Practices,Graduation Outcomes,Outreach and Inclusivity, and Perception

SIBM Pune did not participate in the raking, as it was decided that Symbiosis will participate in the ranking as a University, hence SIU participated in the NIRF ranking 2017.

As a University it is important to focus on Research and Creating knowledge and this is accepted by all.
I was  pondering about the most important aspect  that a parent or an aspirant considers when he/ she chooses a University.
All of us would agree that it is PLACEMENT and specifically the ‘PACKAGE’ that a student gets after completing the programme, becomes the vital aspect considered (especially  at the  post graduate level) when the decision to choose a University in India is taken by an aspirant / parent.

Hence,  I fetched the the data from the NIRF site by choosing the overall ranking for 2017 and created the following  table. I gave ranking for institutions based on the Median Average salary secured by the student.

Slno Institution Place State Median salary of 2 YR POST GRADUATE STUDENTS in (Rs.) RANK based on Median Salary 
1 Indian Institute of Management Calcutta Kolkata West Bengal 2300000 1
2 Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad Ahmedabad Gujarat 2113516 2
3 Indian Institute of Management Bangalore Bengaluru Karnataka 2000000 3
4 Indian Institute of Management Lucknow Lucknow Uttar Pradesh 1845000 4
5 Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode Kozhikode Kerala 1550000 5
6 Indian Institute of Science Bangalore Bengaluru Karnataka 1502000 6
7 Rajiv Gandhi Indian Institute of Management Shillong Meghalaya 1400000 7
8 Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur Kanpur Uttar Pradesh 1360000 8
9 Symbiosis International University Pune Maharashtra 1324000 9
10 Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli Tiruchirappalli Tamil Nadu 1301000 10

It can be seen that Symbiosis International University is the ONLY PRIVATE University in the TOP ten, when only Median salary of 2 YR POST GRADUATE STUDENTS in taken into consideration.

When a parent or an aspirant makes a choice of choosing a University , this  table will  be of great help.

The day is not far when we emerge in the top ten by considering all parameters as well, as SIU has started focusing on Research (which is given 30% weight in the NIRF ranking)
