At O.P. Jindal Global University, being world-class does not merely signify that we have a global faculty, global curriculum, and excellent infrastructure. Neither does it just mean that we rank in the top 800 of the QS World University Rankings and nor does it mean that we have been recommended as an Institution of Eminence.
For us, being world-class means that we remain connected to our roots but allow our eyes, mind, and heart to be open to all that the world has to offer. It means imbuing our students with lifelong learning skills for taking on the world as it is. A world that requires people to think quickly, critically, creatively.
Across our fourteen undergraduate programmes and eight schools, our students are encouraged to develop a sense of curiosity, openness and self-reflection, to take up social and civic responsibilities, to respect diversity, pluralistic societies and other cultures, while adhering to the highest standards of ethical behaviour.
On a daily basis, our students are also engaged beyond the classroom – making a difference to the local community, engaging in sports, taking part in intellectually stimulating debates, discussions and seminars, volunteering and speaking at conferences, acting and producing plays and musicals, organizing cultural festivals and much more.
A holistic and inter-disciplinary education is the need of the hour and at JGU, we encourage students to dream big and to find ways to make those dreams a reality.
I hope that you will make the best use of this opportunity to study at India’s First Multidisciplinary Global University.
The JGU Admissions and Outreach Office and I welcome you to meet our students and staff and to experience the vibrant campus life.
We welcome you to JGU.
