Careers360 has rated the universities of India according to various disciplines for 2013. We have rated the top private multidisciplinary universities of India 2013. A total number of 30 top multidisciplinary universities have been rated by Careers360. These universities have been rated in 5 stars, 4 stars, 3 stars, 2 stars and 1 star.

In the 5 star category, there is only 1 best private multidisciplinary university. Nine  private multidisciplinary universities have received 4 stars, followed by 7 top multidisciplinary institutes getting 3 stars . While 10 private multidisciplinary universities have been given 2 stars, 1 star is received by 3 private multidisciplinary universities.

When the nation began opening up the education sector (it is still very stifled and contrary to many VC’s opinion, is neither governed nor regulated), the sector is slowly showing signs of lumbering towards betterment. The finest among the lot of the top private multidisciplinary universities in India, of course, is the old gent, BITS, Pilani. It is an all rounder performing well across parameters: publications, research, patents, and teaching. But it also has a long standing legacy.

What is heartening is the next level of best private multidisciplinary universities. Though none of them match the legacy institutions in terms of aggregate publishing, the awareness about its importance is in abundance of the top private multidisciplinary universities. Most of the 4 star private multidisciplinary universities are less than 20 years old in 2013. Some of them like Amity are way ahead on the patenting game with over 121 approved applications and a claimed 409 filings. Whether all of them would turn out to be good or dud, at this level is immaterial. The fact that a repository is created and routines are established is of much more importance.

But as one moves to 3 star or 2 star levels, the quality takes a drastic drop, with an all-round average performance, and here we are talking about the top 10% private multidisciplinary universities. To put things in perspective, out of the 146 state private universities, very few of them have made the cut to be rated in the first place. Most institutions in this multidisciplinary domain are deemed to be universities.

What is exciting is the relatively robust correlation between publication record and NAAC rating. Better the NAAC rating, higher appears to be the number of publications. The exceptions to this rule are Symbiosis International University, SRM University and Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning.  One reason is that both Symbiosis and Sathya Sai institutes are relatively specialist players among private multidisciplinary universities of India. While Symbiosis primarily has a management DNA, where publication has never been a strong point, Sathya Sai has been a fine teaching institution, a quality that SRM shares with it. The fact that both were affiliated colleges in their previous avatars also plays a role. But in the coming years, it is imperative that the three and two-star top multidisciplinary university in India ramp up on their publication and patenting record for all round uplift of the system.
