Recently, the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) gave the latest rankings of learning institutions in India. These rankings are done yearly since 2005 by the government through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The rankings are given through evaluation of the following parameters:
• The institution’s research and professional practices.
• The quality of teaching.
• The graduation outcome. This means the number of graduands that a school produces per annum.
• The school’s outreach to the surrounding community and the country at large.
• The general perception of Indian citizens about a particular school.
One of the most notable schools on these rankings was the Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM). This institution is based at IIT Kharagpur. The school was ranked seventh in the category of Management School. The graduation outcomes of VGSoM played the most prominent role in attaining this rank. The institution posted a score of 76.82 out of 100 in this category. The ranking body looked at various parameters in determining the graduation outcomes of the different schools.
They primarily checked the number of students who enrolled in the school against those who left. They also checked the number of Ph.D. students who graduated from each school.
