In 1953, our founder Dr. T.M.A. Pai set up Kasturba Medical College in the town of Udupi in the southern state of Karnataka. In the subsequent years, many other academic institutions followed and this vibrant campus became the town of Manipal. All these institutions were brought under the umbrella of the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) that became India’s first deemed university in 1993. As the group expanded, the need to consolidate its various segments of institutions and businesses led to the formation of the Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG) in 2004. Today, MEMG operates eleven campuses and six universities and is present in five countries. It has transformed the lives of more than 3,00,000 students from over 60 countries.
With its heritage of excellence in higher education for nearly 70 years, MEMG launched Manipal University Jaipur (MUJ) in 2011 on an invitation from the Government of Rajasthan, as a self-financed State University. We redefined academic excellence in the region, with the Manipal way of learning; one that inspires students of all disciplines to learn and innovate through practical, hands-on experience. Our multi-disciplinary university offers career-oriented courses at all levels, i.e., UG, PG and doctoral, and across diverse streams including management, computer applications, engineering, architecture, planning, fine arts, hospitality, humanities, journalism and mass communication, sciences, law, commerce, etc. We’ve nurtured a legacy of inspiring changemakers, an impressive alumni that has impacted change worldwide, faculty members who are at the forefront of their fields, world-class infrastructure and a cutting-edge digital campus. Last year, we started a new chapter when the University Grants Commission (UGC) entitled us to offer online degree programmes (MBA, MCA, MCom, MA JMC, BBA, BCA, BCom) and our first cohort started class in April 2021.
