IIM Kozhikode’s NIRF ranking goes up two notches over last year

Placed fourth among management schools, the B-school has improved its overall scores

IIM Kozhikode has ranked fourth in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings. By climbing up two slots from the previous year, IIMK has surpassed IIM Lucknow and is now placed in the fourth position among management schools in the country.

The parameters for ranking include Teaching, Learning and Resources (TLR, 30 per cent), Research and Professional Practice (RP, 30 per cent), Graduation Outcomes (GO, 20 per cent), Outreach and Inclusivity (OI, 10 per cent) and Perception (PR, 10 per cent).

IIMK’s overall score has improved from 69.96 in 2020 to 73.34 in 2021, and has also significantly reduced the gap with other major competitors. As it is evident from the table, Research and Professional Practice has registered a significant growth of 18.09 per cent during year which have resulted in the improved rankings. IIMK’s pursuant endeavours on gender inclusivity, outreach efforts and the resultant enhancement in perception have greatly contributed to this significant achievement in the 25th year of its inception.
