Top Universities in BRICS and Emerging Economies 2014: Times Higher Education and QS has for the first time released the BRICS and Emerging Economies University Ranking 2014 and the BRICS University Ranking 2013 respectively.
The Times Higher Education BRICS and Emerging Economies Rankings 2014 is an analysis of research-intensive universities across 22 countries defined as emerging economies by the FTSE Global Equity Index Series Country Classification. The rankings include universities from the large BRICS nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, as well as from Czech Republic, Hungary, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Morocco, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines and the UAE. QS University Rankings: BRICS 2013/14 has assessed the top 100 universities in the BRICS countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
The Top Universities in BRICS and Emerging Economies 2014 by Times Higher Education (THE) have been selected on the basis of 13 performance indicators grouped into the following areas:
The QS Top BRICS Universities 2013 has gauged the universities on eight parameters which indicate their performance covering the four key areas of research, teaching, employability and outlook:
THE BRICS and Emerging Economies University Ranking 2014 and the QS Top BRICS Universities 2013 have been published as a complement to the World University Rankings 2013-14 which is heavily dominated by the USA and UK. Only 5 of the Top 200 World Universities are from the 22 countries that have been represented in the THE BRICS and Emerging Economies Rankings 2014. The THE Top Universities in BRICS and Emerging Economies 2014 consist of data on a larger group of institutions from a wider range of countries studied from local and economic perspectives. As said by Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, “There is a growing demand for our research to reflect more on local or economic contexts, and an increasing appetite from an ever-growing range of countries and institutions to benchmark themselves against the world’s very bestâ¦” Similarly, the QS Top BRICS Universities 2013 aim to highlight the strengths and achievements of higher education systems in these five major emerging economies, and to facilitate direct comparison of universities in these nations. Zoya Zaitseva, the BRICS ranking project manager, says, “As for every QS ranking, it is not so much for the universities as for students and young professionals who want to plan their future career and find out what else is out there, beyond their home country. Employers, state officials, media and other users of the rankings are also quite important, but I’d say students are the main focus.”
As can be analyzed, India occupies 10 out of the 100 positions in the THE Top Universities in BRICS and Emerging Economies 2014 list. With Panjab University leading the baton at the thirteenth position, the other Indian institutions included in the THE BRICS and Emerging Economies Rankings 2014 are:
On the other hand, 16 institutions from India made it to the QS Top 100 BRICS Universities 2013. The QS BRICS University Ranking 2013/14 is dominated by China, followed by Russia, Brazil, India and South Africa.
