Methodology 2017 Outlook-Drshti Survey

The process of ranking India’s Best Professional colleges began with an extensive listing of insti­­tutes, and writing to and contacting the directors of institutes who participated over the past years. This year, in an attempt to encourage new entrants across all streams and continued response from patrons, we conducted a rigorous fol­­low-up with e-mail, phone calls and field visits to maximise par­­ticipation. As is the norm, for most streams, col­­­leges with government accredi­tation or affiliation, with at least three graduated batches, were considered.

Detailed objective questionnaires were then sent to over 1,900 colleges across the country in nine streams—Engin­ee­ring, Medicine, Architecture, Dentistry, Law, Social Work, Hotel Management, Fashion and Mass Communication. Like last year, colleges were required to download the questionnaires from Outlook’s website as a step towards making it a fully online exercise.
