JGU is a non-profit global university established by the Haryana Private Universities (Second Amendment) Act, 2009. JGU is established in memory of Mr. O.P. Jindal as a philanthropic initiative of Mr. Naveen Jindal, the Founding Chancellor. The University Grants Commission has accorded its recognition to O.P. Jindal Global University. 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 is situated on a 80-acre state-of-the art residential campus in the National Capital Region of Delhi. JGU is one of the few universities in Asia that maintains a 1:15 faculty-student ratio and appoints faculty members from different parts of the world with outstanding academic qualifications and experience. JGU has established five schools: Jindal Global Law School, Jindal Global Business School, Jindal School of International Affairs, Jindal School of Government and Public Policy and Jindal School of Liberal Arts & Humanities.
The vision in establishing JGU is to impart globalized education with a view to producing world-class professionals, scholars, business leaders and academics in law , management and other disciplines. Globalization has opened various opportunities and challenges which have created the need for competent academics, scholars and professionals. The perspective of JGU is to fulfill this need by equipping their students and faculty with the knowledge, skills, scholarship and vision to meet these challenges and demands of globalization. India, which is on the verge of becoming an economic superpower, must produce world-class professionals, scholars, and academics to compete globally. History indicates that excellence in education leads to economic growth and development. The Founders of JGU ,having realized this, have come up with the mission to establish this global institution in India, which will be comparable to the best in the world. Public funds are scarcely available for higher education in India. Private funds are therefore required in the current educational scenario. The gap between the availability and the need for funds in higher education could be met only by corporate and individual philanthropy. Our mission is implemented through corporate philanthropy and commitment to corporate social responsibility of the Jindal Group, which is a multinational Indian corporate business house. It is hoped that JGU will provide new opportunities in the field of private non-profit higher education. To achieve the vision of providing globalized education in India, JGU has recruited the best faculty from across the globe. JGU has entered into collaborations, exchange programmes, research partnerships and other forms of engagement and interaction with top universities and institutions across the globe, which is willing to share their invaluable intellectual resources developed over decades. JGU aspires to build upon the experiences of the past and the innovations in teaching that are taking place at present to create for the future an institution of global excellence.
