New Delhi: With an aim to emerging as a major player in the Indian higher education sector, O P Jindal Global University on Tuesday said it will open two more schools of specialised disciplines within next three years.

"We will open two more schools in next 2-3 years which will cater to the field of Government and Public Policy and International Affairs. Our aim is to present ourselves as an example of multi-disciplinary excellence in the Indian higher education sector," its Vice Chancellor C Raj Kumar told reporters here.

Announcing the opening of Business School, Kumar said, "Within a year we have started our second school which will start operations from this academic calendar with full-time MBA degree. Going forward, we will be starting under-graduate and other specialised courses."

The Sonepat-based institution was recognised as a full-fledged university under the Haryana Private Universities (Second Amendment) Act, 2009, and started operations last year with the inauguration of its Global Law School.

The university, which has a 54 acre campus, is also looking at increasing its annual intake of students.

"We started with 113 students in our Law School and 120 will be enrolled for the first batch in the Business School. Our aim is to have 2,000 students in Law and 1,000 in various management courses in another five years," Kumar said.

The two new schools --Government and Public Policy and International Affairs --will start with batches of 200-250 students during the first academic year after becoming operational.

"Within five years, we will have around 3,000-3,500 students across all our schools," Kumar said.
