New Delhi – Quacquarelli Symonds’ (QS) yearly rankings of top worldwide universities include 45 educational institutions from India. Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay took first place in the 20th anniversary edition of the rankings for 2024, making it the finest Indian institution. IIT Bombay was ranked 172nd the previous year. The top three spots in the list were held by the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (all from the United States).

“IIT Bombay’s rise to prominence was aided by its amazing trajectory of steady gains in research quality and repute. It has increased its Citations per Faculty ranking from 226th to 133rd over the last five years, moving it up the Employer Reputation rankings from 102nd to 69th. To fully reach its potential as an internationally varied institution, the university’s internationalisation measures still need to be improved, the QS stated in a release.
