However, these are all-inclusive rankings rating the country’s most well-reputed higher ed institutions across several subject study programmes.
Last year, in response to public feedback and demand for rankings of education institutions by popular professional undergraduate programmes, EducationWorld introduced rankings of Top 10 higher ed institutions that provide the most popular bachelor’s degree programmes.
In EWIHER 2022-23 to rate and rank colleges and universities offering most favoured undergrad study programmes, EducationWorld partnered with the Delhi-based Centre for Forecasting and Research (C fore) to conduct a research study using secondary data sources and published reports to shortlist ten most popular undergrad courses and Top 10 colleges offering them. The most popularly preferred undergraduate programmes are: B.Com (banking and finance); bachelor of management studies (BMS)/bachelor of business administration (BBA); B.Arch (bachelor of architecture); BA-LLB (bachelor of law); B.Sc (nursing); B.Tech/BE (biotechnology); B.Tech (data science); B.Tech/BE (computer science); B.Sc (agriculture); BJMC (bachelor of journalism & mass communication). Please note in the streams of computer science, data science and biotechnology, only private higher institutions are ranked.
