For seven years in a row Youth Incorporated, India’s leading and award winning youth magazine, has continued to rank the world’s top institutes. Youth Incorporated, currently included in the ‘100 top youth blogs worldwide’ along with their Media Partner Education Times has released their 2018 ranking of the world’s top 100 undergraduate and MBA and top 50 Masters in Finance, Masters in Management, Online MBA, Masters in Marketing and Executive MBA programmes. Youth Incorporated is the only Indian organisation which ranks international institutes. The magazine focusses on education, careers and issues that face today’s youth. Youth Inc’s 2018 international university rankings are a result of a mammoth effort where over 2230 institutes are considered for the undergraduate rankings compiling responses from thousands of current students and alumni and recruiters. At the MBA and Masters level, over 1650 institutes are considered with responses from over 16000 recruiters.

 

“There are over 200,000 Indian students who go abroad every year for higher education. There is a strong need to provide such students with information about the best institutes overseas. Youth Inc is proud to present rankings of the world top’s institutes at both the undergraduate and graduate level so that students can make an informed decision about their university choice. We have been ranking institutes for the past 7 years now and our rankings are based on responses we receive from the institutes themselves, current students, alumni and recruiters. Indian students are especially concerned about finding jobs after they graduate and hence our ranking methodology gives strong emphasis to alumni and recruiter responses,” says Nitish Shah, Editor-in-Chief of Youth Incorporated.
