The existence of a formal university system of education in India has been from the days of Nalanda and the likes of Taxila, Vikramashila, which proves that India was well ahead of its time in the field of education. The Nalanda University rose to prominence with scholars and students from Central and Southeast Asia till the last years of the 12th century after which it was destroyed by rulers of that time. The existence of Nalanda University has laid the foundation for the modern concept of university-level education uplifting the level of literacy and shedding the darkness of ignorance of the then civilization. The chapter examines the scope of bettering the state of higher educational institutions in India and the world in their endeavor to become centers of excellence. The chapter also examines the advantages of leveraging word of mouth, which could help the institutions build on their brands and improve upon their rankings.
