Spark your ingenuity
When the idea of NU was taking shape in early 2000s, Mr Pawar was clear that the university would not be constrained by existing concepts in higher education. He, the board of advisors (some of the most brilliant scientific minds of our times), and the founding team wanted to create a university with a difference. It had to serve a purpose. And that purpose was to create an environment that provoked thinking, and enabled free-flowing, flexible and limitless learning.

On being asked “What sets NU apart?”, more than 50% of our industry partners said “NU students are problem solvers” and “NU students are among our best hires.” — The NU Brand Survey, 2021
what makes NU unique
As a globally benchmarked, multi-disciplinary institution, NU sets new standards in the emerging areas of technology and management education.
What the education world deals with is historic information while the corporate world is futuristic. Industry practices change every day and if academia does not interact with corporates continuously, it leads to unemployable graduates. NU’s continuous industry connect has resulted in future-relevant courses in the domains of Business Analytics, Digital and Social Media Marketing, FinTech, etc., that are delivered by a proper blend of industry practitioners and academicians thus making the students future-ready.” — Dr Sushil Kalyani, Management
