MAHE makes it to top 10 of NIRF 2019

Dr Christopher Sudhakar, director (Quality), MAHE, received a memento from MHRD Secretary R Subrahmanyam.

Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), broke into the Top 10 of National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) 2019 which was released by President Ramnath Kovind at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi.

MAHE, which improved three places from the 2018 rankings for Indian educational institutes, has obtained 9th position. The rankings are done by the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development.

When the 2018 rankings were announced, MAHE had moved up seven notches to the 11th position and the Vice Chancellor, Dr H Vinod Bhat had said, “It is my belief that in the coming years we will do even better and see MAHE in the Top 10 in NIRF’s 2019 rankings”.

True to his words, MAHE has made the mark.

Dr Bhat said, “I have no doubt we will continue to do better with every passing year. We are working in this direction and am confident of improving our position in the rankings”. In the overall ranking too, MAHE has improved two places – from 18 to 16.

The NIRF ranking framework follows an approach which outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. The parameters broadly cover 'Teaching, Learning and Resources,' 'Research and Professional Practices,' 'Graduation Outcomes,' 'Outreach and Inclusivity' and 'Perception'.

It is a remarkable achievement for the University declared as Institution of Eminence last year.

In the rankings for institutions, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal was ranked seventh in India and the Medical College at Mangaluru retained its 16th rank in the country. Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences continues to be the seventh best and Manipal Institute of Technology is ranked 43.
