Four Pillars of JLU
Jagran Lakecity University stands on a strong foundation based on our four key pillars. These pillars are central to everything we have achieved and wish to achieve in the future.
1. Student Centric Approach :
At JLU students are at the center of all that we undertake and perform. We ensure that the interests of our students are given the utmost priority, acknowledging their voices as central to the learning experience.
The management continuously seeks feedback from students about their experiences at JLU and understands their expectations from the university with respect to their learning agenda. We work on this like equal partners who jointly partake in their personal as well as mutual growth.
The university has a strong mechanism of class representatives who represent the larger student community of their respective classes.
This leadership opportunity also presents the students with a starting block for becoming young leaders who collaborate with the university management in designing policies and processes while keeping their interests at the top.
2. Global Network Connect :
Since its inception, Jagran Lakecity University has carefully built-in components of global exposure in all the programs offered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
With the world looking toward India, it’s an important aspect that needs to be taken care of, and keeping graduate students sensitized about things happening across the globe is crucial.
Our initiatives such as connected classrooms (where students from our partnering university work with students at JLU on the same project), credited electives from international universities, international teaching months, short exchange programs for both faculty and students, semester exchanges, and summer schools are some of the ways in which we have been able to expose our students globally.
3. Intensive Industry Intervention :
Jagran Lakecity University believes that bridging the gap between academia and industry is of utmost importance and there is no better way to do this than by setting up degree programs in joint consultation with industry leaders.
Today, JLU offers more than 15 such degree programs which are in close collaboration with industry leaders like KPMG, National Stock Exchange, Wizcraft, Taxmann, ACCA, CIMA, and Imagine XP to name a few.
These degree programs not only expose students to what is relevant to the industry but also give an opportunity to the industry stalwarts to immerse themselves into the academic process. They’re involved right from the designing of a degree to specialist interactions with students on a day-to-day basis for either the entire length of the program or for specific areas.
4. Skill Based Interdisciplinary Degrees :
The university follows an interdisciplinary approach to learning, allowing the students to synthesize ideas and characteristics from many disciplines into a unique amalgam.
This helps in addressing individual differences amongst students and develops important transferable skills in them. Through our system of cross electives, the students get an opportunity to build on their degree program based on their specific areas of interest and choice. For instance, a student primarily studying management can also opt for electives from law or design depending on their interest.
Jagran Lakecity University has also ensured that through its dedicated “Skills for Professionals”, each student is exposed to a set of future skills that go beyond just reading, writing, and speaking, and helps them to be better prepared for their desired profession by the end of their degree with us.
