MAHE leapfrogs 7 places to achieve best-ever rank

Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) has vaulted seven places in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) Rankings for Universities in India, announced by the Union Human Resource Development Ministry in New Delhi.

From 18th rank, MAHE moved to the 11th rank which is the best yet for the university. In the overall ranking too, MAHE has jumped 12 places, from 30 to 18. This recognition has come when the university is celebrating its silver jubilee. That's not all, there was a lot more to cheer about with five of its constituent units doing extremely well in the rankings and making their presence felt in the education world.

Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, has been ranked fourth in India and the Medical College, Mangaluru, is in the 16th position. Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences retained its rank of being the seventh best in the country.

As for Faculty of Architecture (FOA), the college got the 10th rank. FOA needs a pat on the back for being the only private college to figure among the first 10. Manipal Institute of Technology, ranked 43 the last time, has also seen an improvement and has been ranked 39th.

Vice Chancellor Dr H Vinod Bhat said that MAHE has reached an all-time high of 11th position in the country, up from position number 18 last year. MAHE will be in the Top 10 positions in the NIRF 2019 rankings, he added.
