SIBM Pune has been conferred GOLD RATING by QS I·GAUGE (Brand incorporated in India by QS World University Rankings)

QS Quacquarelli Symonds, based in London, UK, are the publishers of the QS World University Rankings, regional and subject rankings. Published since 2004, QS rankings have served as an international benchmark for comparing universities, helping millions of students, but also governments and employers, make informed decisions about higher education.

QS I∙GAUGE is a brand incorporated in India as an independent private-sector initiative specialised in rating universities and colleges, and brings together the global expertise, experience and reputation of QS, along with local knowledge from partners. It is a ratings tool that capture the essence of the dynamic Indian higher education system, and conforms to international standards and best practices.

Each rating produced by QS I∙GAUGE is strictly monitored and supervised by the QS Intelligence Unit in London. This is the same team that produces the authoritative rankings as well as the globally recognised QS Stars university ratings system. Close supervision by QSIU ensures the independence, quality and integrity of QS I∙GAUGE ratings, leading to their global recognition.

QS I·GAUGE is currently in the pilot phase of its university and college ratings system. Inspired by the globally recognised QS Stars rating and adapted to the needs and aspirations of the Indian higher education system, QS I·GAUGE aspires to provide students with a comprehensive and systematic understanding of the higher education landscape of India. It also aims to offer Indian institutions an opportunity to benchmark their performance, and develop strategies for upgrading their educational offerings.QS I·GAUGE thus serves both as an invaluable source of information about the participating institutions, and a management tool for advancing Indian higher education as a whole.

I am glad to inform you that SIBM Pune has been rated with GOLD RATING by QS I·GAUGE
