QS and THE: A Ranking for BRICS only, more or less...

http://www.aca-secretariat.be/fileadmin/templates/2009/images/logosmall.jpgA new special ranking on a specific group of countries? Or simply a new ranking for those who did not make it to the regular one? From whatever angle you may want to look at it, the end of the year is approaching and there is still enough time to publish some new ranking! Even two of those – Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) and the Times Higher Education (THE) have published a new country-specific university ranking each earlier this month. Whereas the QS Ranking focuses exclusively on Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS), THE brings in some additional emerging countries next to the BRICS themselves.

Top Universities in Brazil

Recent years have seen a growing international recognition for universities in Brazil, with 22 Brazilian institutions featured in the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings®. The new QS University Rankings: BRICS, developed in collaboration with Russian news agency Interfax, makes it possible to see how the top universities in Brazil compare with the leading institutions in fellow fast-growing economies Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Top Universities in India

India boasts 16 entries in the top 100 of the new QS University Rankings: BRICS, a ranking of leading universities in the five BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Unsurprisingly, the top universities in India are largely comprised of Institutes of Technology (IITs) – the elite group of colleges specializing in engineering, technology and science disciplines which have so far provided the main success story of Indian higher education. Of the 16 IITs in operation, half are ranked within the BRICS top 100, and the first seven of these also constitute the seven top universities in India. Also performing well are a number of large multidisciplinary public universities, based in India’s major cities: the final three places in the Indian top 10 are taken by the Universities of Calcutta, Delhi and Mumbai, and the BRICS top 100 also includes the University of Hyderabad, University of Madras, Banaras Hindu University, University of Pune and Manipal University.

The top ten contains seven Chinese, two Brazilian and one Russian university. There are none from South Africa or India, although the University of Cape Town is eleventh.

These rankings also assess universities for faculty student ratio (20%), faculty with Ph Ds (10%), papers per faculty (10%), citations per faculty (5%), international faculty (2.5%) and international students (2.5%).
The top five overall are:

  1. Tsinghua University
  2. Peking University
  3. Lomonosov Moscow State University
  4. Fudan University
  5. Nanjing University

In the top 100 there are 40 Chinese, 19 Russian, 17 Brazilian, 16 Indian and 8 South African universities. More...
