It is an honour and a privilege to address you as the Dean of the Office of International Affairs and Global Initiatives of the O.P. Jindal Global University.

The University is only a decade old, but its progress has been phenomenal. From one School and 100 students in 2009 it now has 9 Schools and 5100 students.

The O.P. Jindal Global University is rightly labelled as “global” and the Office of International Affairs and Global Initiatives plays an important role in this. The University has as many as 270+ collaborative arrangements with some of the best Universities in the world. We strongly believe that our students must experience world class faculty and pedagogy which can then prepare them for the challenges of the post-COVID world.

Some of the best global exposure programmes on offer for our students include:

  • Semester Exchange Programmes
  • Short Term Study Abroad Programmes
  • Winter & Summer Schools
  • Dual Degree Programmes
  • Master’s Pathway Programmes
  • Internship Opportunities

We believe strongly, that internationalization begins at home. In its young life so far, JGU has attracted full-time students from South Asia, various parts of Africa, Tibet, Korea and Brazil, among others, studying to obtain degrees from one of our nine schools.

The Office of International Affairs and Global Initiatives reaffirms its solemn commitment to offer the best opportunities for all our students to get the widest possible experience to study abroad and global experience.
