Event Report - India’s Happiest and Institutions of Academic Rigour Announced

12 May, 2022

New Delhi: QS I-GAUGE, the Indian subsidiary of UK-based QS Quacquarelli Symonds, announced India’s happiest educational institutions at a Conclave in New Delhi, awarding over 33 universities, colleges, and schools from Pan India, after a rigorous assessment exercise which began in December last year in association with industry body ASSOCHAM. These institutions were titled as “Institutions of Happiness (IOH)”.

Present at the event in New Delhi’s India Habitat Centre, was Union Minister for Women and Child Development, Honourable Smt Smriti Zubin Irani, who presided over the event and awarded the certificates. On the occasion, she said that “It is important that educators gain insights into the level of happiness of students and their well-being, which will enable institutions to advance their outcomes holistically”. The ‘Institution of Happiness’ status was bestowed after a rigorous exercise that covered over 100 institutions, but only 33 of them were able to qualify the set thresholds.

QS I-GAUGE was launched in 2018 at the hands of the Former President of India, Late Shri Pranab Mukherjee, and was set up as an international, independent, private-sector initiative specialised in rating colleges, universities, and schools. The system was designed after the highly recognised QS STARS University Rating System, and further adapted to capture the reality of the dynamic Indian higher education sector, while at the same time maintaining the strict quality standards that are synonymous with the QS brand.

At the same event, the independent rating outcomes of over 22 Indian universities, colleges, and schools were also announced, after completing the assessment in over 100 indicators spread across various categories ranging from teaching & learning, faculty quality, employability, social responsibility, and internationalisation to research, entrepreneurship, innovation, sports, and arts & culture.

For many of the institutions that received both their Institution of Happiness and QS I-GAUGE Rating, it was a double bonanza to be recognised both as the happiest institutions as well as institutions of excellence in various categories.

On the same occasion, Dr Ashwin Fernandes, CEO, and Director of QS I-GAUGE said, “Quality and excellence are of great significance in imparting education, as it enhances the capacities and capabilities of the learners, who will bridge the gap between the underdeveloped and the developed nations. This is not possible without the involvement of every stakeholder. QS I-GAUGE is actively involved in providing global expertise to Indian institutions in this journey”. The event ended on a high note.
