Of the four Indian Universities which made it to the top 150 QS Young University Rankings 2021, JGU is the only non-STEM, non-Medicine University to feature in this list, which demonstrates JGU’s ability to make a large impact and break stereotypes in a short period. JGU has yet again successfully demonstrated that age is merely a number, and a futuristic vision backed by a robust implementation is what it takes to achieve great heights.
Naveen Jindal, Founding Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University said, “JGU’s recognition in the top 150 young universities in the world is a fantastic development. It only underscores the point that age and time are not limitations, if you have the desire, commitment, hard work and perseverance to build a world class university. As a young, private, not-for-profit and philanthropic university, JGU has demonstrated agility and dedication through this achievement, and it is indeed a proud moment to be able to consistently contribute to building our nation, and the global education landscape. I congratulate all members of Team JGU for making this possible through their hard work”.
Regarding the QS Young University Rankings 2021, Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University said, “This is indeed yet another proud moment for JGU. To be ranked among the top 150 universities in the world, which are less than 50 years of age is a significant recognition for an 11-year old university. These rankings have reinforced our consistent institutional commitment to promote excellence in everything that we do as a university. To be among the top 150 universities in the world also creates greater responsibility as we move towards aspiring for higher levels of excellence. The faculty, students, staff and all stakeholders of JGU have been remarkably galvanised by this extraordinary recognition. Our constant endeavour will be to further strengthen our teaching pedagogies and learning outcomes, research ecosystem and publications, international collaborations and student engagement, leading the path for a resurgent and emerging India to make an indelible impression in the landscape of global higher education”.
Earlier this month, JGU was recognized in the QS World University Rankings 2021 among the top 651-700 universities in the world. JGU was also recognized as India’s number one private university, India’s number one university to solely focus on Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, and the youngest Indian University to have featured in the QS WUR 2021.Posted in Campus, News
