QS I-GAUGE was launched in 2018 at the hands of the Former President of India, Late Pranab Mukherjee, and was set up as an international, independent, private-sector initiative specialized in rating colleges, universities, and schools. The system was designed after the highly recognized QS STARS University Rating System, and further adapted to capture the reality of the dynamic Indian higher education sector, while at the same time maintaining the strict quality standards that are synonymous with the QS brand.
