New Delhi & Rajkot, 27th November 2023: Marwadi University (MU) is proud to announce that it has now become one of India’s youngest universities to receive the prestigious ‘A+’ accreditation from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Incepted as Marwadi Education Foundation Group of Institutions in 2009, and achieving state private university status in 2016 granted by the Govt of Gujarat, Marwadi University achieved the coveted accreditation post an extensive on-site inspection and detailed report submitted to an esteemed seven member visiting committee.
The accreditation process evaluates various aspects, including the quality of teaching, learning, research, infrastructure, governance, and overall academic performance. The accreditation is a culmination of relentless commitment towards academic excellence, research, and overall development. Throughout the last academic year MU has signed 56 MOU’s with Salesforce – USA; University of Public Service-Hungary, LUISS-Italy, Chicago-Kent College of Law-USA, ZURU Tech India, to name a few.
The university also developed its own UniRP (University Resource Planning) software currently running 110+ modules, 1500+ screens, 12 mobile apps and 1650+ reports. At present, MU houses 10 industry-supported labs to provide practical research opportunities through industry partnerships, with consultancy revenue of INR 5 Cr versus INR 1.2 Cr last year.
Prof. (Dr) Sandeep Sancheti, Vice-Chancellor, Marwadi University, Rajkot expressed his delight on this momentous occasion saying, “It is a proud moment for all of us at Marwadi University to be graded A+ by NAAC. Receiving the status of Center of Excellence by Gujarat Government and the added feather of NAAC A+ at a young age of 7, is a testament of our vision and relentless efforts in the direction of delivering quality higher education.
