In the Times Higher Education BRICS and Emerging Economies University Rankings 2017, announced on Thursday, Manipal University has been ranked in the 251-300 band.

The ranking includes only institutions in countries classified as ‘advanced emerging’, ‘secondary emerging’ or ‘frontier’ by FTSE, including the BRICS nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. India is classified in the secondary emerging category by FTSE. The other countries in the category are: Chile, China, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Qatar, Russia and UAE.

“Manipal’s steady progress up the ranking ladder in the last two years has ensured that we are in the elite company of the best universities in the world. This drive has come from an upsurge in research and internationalization. With this achievement, we feel Manipal University should now be classified as a world class university by the Government of India,” said Dr H. Vinod Bhat the Vice Chancellor.

These rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the flagship for ‘The World University Rankings’ to judge institutions across core missions — teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. But they are recalibrated to reflect the development priorities of universities in emerging economies. This year’s table includes 41 countries, up from 35 last year, and for the first time, the ranking includes 300 universities.

Manipal University said that the University has been pursuing each of these performance indicators aggressively for better outcomes in ranking in the coming years.
