NU’s Industry-linked programmes are unique and one-of-its-kind in the country. As a faculty member, your exposure to these programmes will help you develop new industry-oriented courses to complement traditional curriculum.
These courses aid your professional development as well. For example, the tie-up with ICICI Bank for our 5-year integrated MBA programme (April 2011 – October 2016) to train middle managers spawned the careers of many of NU’s faculty members.
NU’s academic ecosystem nurtures academic leaders who can take their place on the leadership team and on various industry and institutional bodies such as academic councils, industry advisory boards, research advisory boards, etc.
Your experience will help in institution building and in charting the university’s future direction.

NU prides itself on offering a workplace ecosystem that provides not only a wide range of opportunities for professional development but also an atmosphere that is conducive to inspiring creativity and a sense of well-being.
