The rankings, which are released by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), have been built up by the government of India through the Ministry of Human Resource Development since 2015. Five hundred forty two business schools submitted their information for the rankings.
VGSoM’s score of 76.82 of 100 in the management school category was based on higher studies, position, free enterprise, university tests and earnings. The score was also derived from graduating students who went on to attend top universities and the number of PhD students that graduated.
Teaching and learning continue as the principle areas covered throughout the universities as well as research, outreach and awareness. In addition, intellectual property, consulting services and management initiatives have become the latest standards.
VGSoM was established in 1993 with the help of Indian-born American entrepreneur and philanthropist, Vinod Gupta.
Vinod Gupta, who was born near Saharanpur on July 4, 1946, majored in agricultural engineering at IIT Kharagpur. He went on to receive his engineering degree at the University of Nebraska and a Masters degree in Business Administration.
He is the former chief executive officer and chairman of InfoGROUP and the managing general partner and founder of the Everest Group, which makes consulting, venture capital and research services available.
Gupta’s philanthropy involves donations of more than $50 million to charitable organizations in India and the United States. He has donated $2 million to set up the University of Nebraska’s curriculum for small business management and $1 million for a women’s technical school in Rampur Manhyaran.
More recently, he got a law school underway, the Rajiv Gandi School of Intellectual Property Law in India.
