Amrita University has emerged as the only private university from India to find a place in the prestigious Times Higher Education Ranking of Top 200 universities from the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and Emerging Economies. This achievement, which comes only 12 years after the Amrita University was founded, is a huge validation of the leadership and vision of the university's Founder and Chancellor Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi.
