The Outlook annual ranking of India’s best professional colleges (in partnership with Drshti Strategic Research Services) is aimed to help students make an informed choice on the line of education across nine streams. The process of ranking India’s best professional colleges includes an extensive listing of institutes, writing to and contacting the directors of institutes, and encouraging new entrants across all the streams. As is the norm, for most streams, colleges with government accreditation or affiliation, and with at least three passed-out batches, were considered.
Next, detailed objective questionnaires were then sent to more than 2,200 colleges across the country in nine streams, including Engineering, Medicine, Architecture, Dentistry, Law, Social Work, Hotel Management, Fashion and Mass Communication. The objective questionnaires measured colleges on five key parameters (selection process and institute profile, academics, personality development, placements, employment and graduating outcome, and infrastructure), the weights of which were kept constant to ensure comparability with the previous year’s rankings.
Participating this year are nearly 446 institutes across streams. This year, instead of the perceptual survey, the Drshti research team used Social Media Listing where they took into account various social media pages of colleges, and also reviewed the comments made by students and analysed it. Various industry experts from different streams were also consulted.
