The Times Higher Education Young University Rankings spotlight the globe’s best universities aged 50 or younger, featuring 673 esteemed institutions worldwide. MGU stands at the 81st position in this esteemed roster.

These rankings meticulously assess universities across all essential facets—teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. Following MGU in India’s top tier are Anna University, Bharathiar University from Tamil Nadu, and the Indian Institute of Technology, which hold the second to fourth positions respectively.

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, reigns supreme for the second consecutive year, followed closely by PSL Research University, Paris, and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

In this year’s Asia University Ranking, the Indian Institute of Science in Bengaluru and Anna University in Tamil Nadu lead the pack, respectively. Meanwhile, China’s Tsinghua University and Peking University maintain their dominance at the summit for the fifth consecutive year.
