A frequently cited statistic about India is that sixty percent of the population is under the age of twenty-five. This means that there are hundreds of millions of young people coming of age in a very different world than their parents and grandparents grew up in.
Rooted in their families and communities but also part of an interconnected, globalized society, young people in India navigate a world of complexity, ambiguity, and change.
To be successful and to find your place in such a world requires new ways of thinking and learning. O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) is at the forefront of these changes.
We believe that it is possible to get a world-class education in India benchmarked and surpassing global standards.
World class is not merely a catch-phrase or brand. To be world-class does not simply mean that we have a global faculty, global curriculum, and excellent infrastructure. It is not only that we rank on some of the globe’s top University rankings. To be world-class means that we remain rooted where we are but allow our eyes, minds, and hearts to be open to all the world has to offer.
Across our eleven undergraduate programmes, six post-graduate programmes, eight schools, and three research institutes, we foster in our students curiosity and openness, and prepare them for the world as it is—a world that requires people to think quickly, critically, creatively to understand how the world and how to change it.
At JGU we encourage students to dream big and to find ways to make those dreams a reality. I invite you to apply and to seize the opportunity to become part of our dynamic and vibrant community.
