The first Indian university to have received a QS 5 Star Global Rating for Employability and Facilities, UPES was recognised for its exemplary performance in the following categories:
– Employability: Graduate employability encompasses more than academic strength, focusing on ‘work-readiness’ – the ability to work effectively in a multi-cultural team, to deliver presentations, to manage people and projects. Common indicators in this area are surveys of employers, graduate employment rates and level of career service support.
– Facilities: The Facilities category talks about the physical infrastructure of a university, providing students with some insight into the environment they can expect for the university experience.
– Teaching: A key role of a university is nurturing tomorrow’s finest minds, inspiring the next generation of potential research academics. Typical indicators here are domestic teaching quality assessments, collation of student feedback, national student surveys and student faculty ratios.
– Inclusiveness: For a university aspiring to become truly world-class, its mission and its impact must extend further beyond the basics. The indicators considered here include: provision of scholarships and bursaries – particularly relevant in today’s global trend of higher tuition fees and student assistance policy, disabled access, gender equality and outreach effort to students from low-income families.
Delighted on the milestone achieved by the university, Utpal Ghosh, CEO and President, commented saying, “UPES is proud to be rated 5 Stars for placements and campus facilities and 4 Stars for teaching, a global recognition that clearly reflects our commitment towards our students.”
