The 25th edition of India Today’s Best Colleges Survey delves into how institutes straddled the shift to digital education during the pandemic. The past year has been a watershed moment for education around the world. The pandemic threw the core structure of imparting institutional education into disarray as it had never been seen before. India was no different. Campus life in schools, colleges, and institutions across the country has come to a halt. Colleges were ranked across 14 streams-arts, science, commerce, medical, dental, engineering, architecture, law, mass communication, hotel management, BBA, BCA, fashion and social work. India Today has partnered with the reputed Delhi-based market research agency Marketing and Development Research Associates (MDRA) to rank colleges across 14 streams.
To come up with the most thorough and balanced means of evaluating institutions, the agency created 112 performance indicators in each stream. Intake Quality & Governance, Academic Excellence, Infrastructure & Living Experience, Personality & Leadership Development, and Career Progression & Placement were the five main factors that were used to group these variables. They also tried to figure out how universities prepared for the pandemic. MDRA evaluated universities using current-year data in order to provide realistic, relevant, and accurate information. Between December 2020 and June 2021, the groundwork was completed.
Chitkara University continues to top the charts by being placed among the best of the best in the top 50. The India Today Group’s annual college survey has for the past two decades authentically reflected the state and progress of the country’s colleges.
