The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) recently released its yearly rankings of institutions of higher education in India. Since 2015, the rankings have been developed by the Government of India through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). These rankings are based upon the following parameters: “Teaching, Learning and Resources”, “Research and Professional Practices”, “Graduation Outcomes”, “Outreach and Inclusivity”, and “Perception”. 

The Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM) at IIT Kharagpur has been ranked seventh overall in the Management School category of the rankings. Within this ranking, VGSoM received its highest score in the graduation outcomes parameter (76.82 out of 100). When calculating this score, the results were based on placement, higher studies, entrepreneurship, university examinations, median salary, graduating students admitted into top universities, and the number of PhD students that graduated. Many of the institutions ranked have a focused area of study, in this case, Management. With IIT Kharagpur encompassing a wide array of disciplines, being ranked highly is a true testament to the well-rounded institute that IIT Kharagpur is. 

Congratulations to VGSoM and IIT Kharagpur on receiving this prestigious ranking and honour!
