ERA Foundation has been instrumental in bringing QS to India, and championing for a India centric rating called QS I•GAUGE. This is an independent private-sector initiative specialised in rating colleges and universities. It brings together the global expertise, experience, and reputation of UK based QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), along with deep local knowledge of luminaries from Indian higher education.
QS maintains complete operational control and supervision on QS I•GAUGE processes in an independent setting in Bangalore. Each rating produced is strictly monitored for quality control by the QS Intelligence Unit in London. This is the same team that produces the authoritative QS World University Rankings (since 2004) and related regional and subject rankings, as well as the globally recognised QS Stars university ratings system. Close supervision by QS IU ensures the independence, quality and integrity of the ratings, leading to their global recognition.
Please visit the QS I•GAUGE website to learn more of their operation.
