The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), Ministry of HRD, Government of India has recently come out with its ranking of MBA and PGDM institutions, first of its kind by any government agency. Management institutes and university MBA departments, both in public and private sectors, were evaluated and ranked on certain qualitative and quantitative parameters.
As per the ranking, JIMS Rohini has attained 43rd spot in the All India list of top 50 management institutions, which included IIMs, IITs and government funded universities. Considering that nearly 4000 institutes and universities participated in the process, JIMS, Rohini has achieved a landmark of positioning itself among the most sought after B-schools especially in the north India.
The Core Committee set up by MHRD, identified the broad parameters for ranking various universities and institutions. The parameters broadly covered “Teaching, Learning and Resources (TLR)” “Research and Professional Practices (RPC),” “Graduation Outcomes (GO),” “Outreach and Inclusivity (OI),” and “Perception”. It is heartening to note that JIMS, Rohini secured fairly good scores on three vital parameters mainly TLR, RPC and OI.
The above parameters are being discussed in brief, as follows;Teaching, Learning & Resources (TLR): The ranking weightage was 0.30 and these were related to the core activities of the management institution. Emphasis was on the numbers and quality of faculty, library and lab resources and general facilities for development of young learners. Research, Professional Practice & Collaborative Performance (RPC): The ranking weightage for this parameter was also 0.30. These parameters measured the quantity and quality of research output, IPR generation and interface with industry and fellow professionals Graduation Outcomes (GO): The ranking weightage assigned was 0.15 and it focussed on the effectiveness of the core teaching / learning activity. Also it measured the student graduation rate and their success in finding appropriate placement in industry and Government or taking up higher studies.
Outreach and Inclusivity (OI): The ranking weightage given was 0.15. It laid emphasis on representation of women and socially challenged persons in student and / or faculty populations, and also on outreach
