IITB and IISc ranked among 49 top Indian varsities in the world - Comment
The 2019 ranking comprises of approximately 450 universities - expanded from 378 last year - from 43 countries, across 4 continents.
"Indian institutions have immense potential for success - not only on the emerging stage, but globally. But, while progress is clearly being made, other economies that previously lagged behind - such as Egypt and Malaysia - are starting to advance at a much faster rate," said Ellie Bothwell, Global Rankings Editor for THE.
"In this year's table, India's institutions perform well in teaching. However, they are significantly behind the global average in terms of international outlook. Strengthening this will further elevate the nation's global reputation for higher education, encourage important research collaborations and help attract international students," Bothwell added.
India has shown tremendous improvement in the prestigious university rankings of Times Higher Education Emerging Economies with 49 institutions making it to the list. This includes 25 Indian varsities in the top 200.
However China still remains the most represented nation in the annual 2019 listing, claiming 4 of the top five positions with Tsinghua University topping the chart, according to the London-based Times Higher Education (THE), a global organisation that produces data, analysis and expertise on higher education.
