We believe that we are moving towards a future where the ever-increasing demand in research and education can be met by globally networked university systems. Chitkara University’s robust international exchange programs with more than 130+ overseas universities/colleges give our students an edge to learn from the best of minds. Additional to our international edge, we host “Global Week” every year, where the expert faculty members of distinctive universities come to our campus and teach our students and share their best practices.
The Indian entrepreneurial spirit has risen remarkably as India stands third amongst the fastest growing startup countries worldwide – just after the US and the UK.The Government of India is supporting this initiativeand so are we. Through Chitkara University’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, Education and Development (CEED), we have tried to provide a conducive environment for the students to develop a mindset of being an entrepreneur. At present, more than 40+ start-ups are successfully functioning at our state-of-art incubators.
In nutshell, we believe that every student has the potential to do exceptionally well if given the right guidance and mentoring. In order to deliver future generations with the right set of skills and knowledge, Chitkara University is continuously evolving its educational practices. We acknowledge the fact that it’s our key responsibility to deliver and acquaint our students with a right combination of education and employability skills so that they are ready for their future workplace.
