The QS World University Ranking 2023-2024 has been released late night on Tuesday, 27th June.

The Premiere Institute from Mumbai with an overall score of 51.7 out of 100 is the top university in the list from India. In the 2024 edition of QS World University Rankings, the Institute is placed within the top 10% of the world’s top 1500 universities that QS considered worth ranking.

45 Indian universities in this year QS ranking list
Nunzio Quacquarelli, Founder & CEO, QS said, "I'd like to congratulate Indian universities on their ever-improving performance. We've rated 2900 institutions for this year's ranking system, and there are 45 Indian universities that are appearing in the ranking. That is a 297% increase over the last nine years. So really continuous, steady improvement by Indian universities."
I'd particularly like to congratulate IIT Bombay for coming 148 in the world as the top-performing Indian university ever and the top-performing public university. I had the honour of meeting PM Modi in 2021. I really was impressed by his passion and commitment to improving higher education in India and his involvement in the national education policy, added the founder.
With 45 Indian universities in the latest rankings -- up from 41 last year -- India has one less university in the top 200 rankings in the 20th edition of the QS World University Rankings compared to the previous edition.
