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.
