The vision of JGU is to promote global courses, global programmes, global curriculum, global research, global collaborations, and global interaction through a global faculty. JGU’s this vision will enable the State of Haryana and India to become a provider of international education and a leader in the transnational knowledge economy. JGU is situated on a 60-acre state of the art residential campus. JGU is one of the few Universities in India that maintains a 1:15 faculty-student ratio and appoints faculty members from different parts of the world with outstanding academic qualifications and experience.
The international educational background and experience of our faculty members augurs well for our inter-disciplinary approach towards higher education. JGU’s global vision and global orientation are its unique characteristics. JGU’s global vision is recognised by many institutions worldwide and has enabled JGU to develop international collaborations with the United Nations University, Harvard University, Yale University, University of Michigan, Cornell University, New York University, King’s College London, University of Cambridge, and many other reputed universities and educational institutions worldwide.
These collaborations position India to situate itself within global networks of academic excellence and assume a leadership role in the field of higher education. The vision of JGU is to establish four schools: a Law School, a Business School, a School of Government and Public Policy and a School of International Affairs. Each school will aspire to promote innovative programmes and initiate cutting edge research that would have profound impact in India and the world at large. JGU has already established three schools, Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), Jindal Global Business School (JGBS), an Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA)
