Shoolini University has emerged one of the leading private universities of India as per rankings given by the prestigious National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) set up by the union ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD).
It has not only retained its position in the top overall 101-150 band from among about 4500 institutions of higher learning in the country but has earned a slot in the 51-75 band in MBA and has improved its performance in pharmacy by attaining 30th rank.
While only four private universities from the northern region have found a place in the top 100 band, Shoolini University is only among three who have figured in the 101-150 band in the overall University rankings. Two of these are from Himachal Pradesh and one from Uttarakhand. While Shoolini has maintained its consistent place in the 101-150 band, where it was also placed last year, the other private university from the state, Jaypee University of Information Technology, was at 93rd rank last year and is placed this year in the 101-150 band.
Among the top 100 universities, three of the four private universities in the northern region comprising Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh, are located in UP and one in Punjab (Thapar University, Patiala).
Another interesting and significant data culled out of NIRF figures is that out of 101 private universities in the north only 10 have found a place, including Shoolini University, in the rankings.
Shoolini University had applied for rankings only in three categories - overall, Management and Pharmacy - and figured well in all the three categories. The School of Pharmaceutical Sciences has performed consistently well and was placed at 30th rank among more than one thousand Pharma Schools from across the country. It scaled up its position by 9 places and moved to 30th rank from 39th place last year.
To everyone’s delight, School of Business Management, which applied for the rankings for the first time, competed with 487 Management Schools from across the nation and has been placed in the rank band of 51-75 Top Management Schools in the country. It has emerged as one of the leading Business Schools in the region and placed below none in the state.
“I am very happy to share that Shoolini University is now among the top five private universities of the northern region including states of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Jammu and Kashmir”, shared Prof. P K Khosla, the Vice Chancellor of Shoolini University. “The research achievements of Shoolini are already better than the average of the ten best universities of the country. I feel extremely proud that we are competing with some of the leading Private Universities in the region which have been long established even before the inception of Shoolini.”
The only University from the state that has been ranked higher than the Shoolini University is Dr. Y.S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry (Nauni University), Solan which has been placed at the 71 rank among all Indian Universities.
