Posted on Updated on

Education -  The 2015 Academic Ranking of World UniversitiesI am surprised to note that there is only 1 Indian University among the World top 400 in the ARWU ranking.

The 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities , most commonly called Shanghai Ranking is now available. Although often debated, its presentation of the world top 500 universities is known worldwide.

The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) is conducted by researchers at the Center for World-Class Universities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (CWCU). CWCU has been focusing on the study of world-class universities for many years, published the first Chinese-language book titled world-class universities and co-published the first English book titled world-class universities with European Centre for Higher Education of UNESCO. CWCU initiated the “First International Conference on World-Class Universities” (WCU-1) in 2005 and organizes the conference every second year, which attracts a large number of participants from all major countries. CWCU endeavors to build databases of major research universities in the world and clearinghouse of literature on world-class universities, and provide consultation for governments and universities.
