QS I-GAUGE is a brand incorporated in India as an independent private-sector initiative specialised in rating colleges, universities, and schools. It brings together the global expertise, experience, and reputation of UK based (QS) Quacquarelli Symonds, along with deep local knowledge of luminaries from Indian education.
QS I-GAUGE rating was launched in the year 2018 by the Hon’ble President Late Shri Pranab Mukherjee. After successfully implementing the methodology with over 100 institutions to date, it was time to revisit our approach to stay relevant in a dynamic market and to be a ‘trusted advisor’ to our student community, which is the prime focus of all initiatives by QS. Although our methodology is the product of years of research, we continue to refine our approach in consultation with institutions and higher education experts, by conducting extensive literature reviews, data analysis, studies on new and changing dimensions in education itself.
