Jalandhar, July 20, 2019: Upholding its vigor in the realms of education, Lovely Professional University (LPU) has been ranked top in the Punjab state and among the top 5 private universities across the country. This prestigious ranking is based on top Outlook Magazine’s ‘ICARE India University Rankings 2019: Top 50 Private State Universities’. Prior to this, LPU already has numerous coveted rankings to its credit from other top magazines, newspapers, media channels, authoritative agencies including Government of India’s top NIRF Ranking. This annual ranking of India’s top universities can help admission seeking students to make a preferred & informed choice for their bright career ahead.
For this ranking, magazine endeavored to evaluate institutions based on parameters such as Faculty Student Ratio (FSR), Faculty with Ph.D. (FWP), Papers per Faculty (PPF), Citations per Paper (CPP) and Inclusiveness & Diversity (ID). Institutions are awarded an overall rank depending on the number of points achieved through the evaluation, and their key strengths in specific parameters. This has been designed with valuable feedback from the industry.
In fact, this ranking is a fair assessment based on how institutions within the same category perform against each other in a variety of metrics. This helps in finding the strengths and weaknesses of an institution in each domain. Concerned editor of the magazine holds: “All assessments are based on objective data obtained from reliable third-party sources; and, there is zero dependence on voluntary submissions. This assures parents and stakeholders about the highest standards of quality and reliability adopted for fair and accurate rankings.”
Expressing his happiness, LPU Chancellor Ashok Mittal shared: “Such rankings keep on inspiring us to work harder than previous efforts to lead university regularly to more national and international glorious heights. In addition, I also feel that this unique system of ranking is certainly a mirror for professional education seeking students. It can help them to easily identify institutions which may be a good fit for them.”
