The Ahmedabad University is located in the commercial hub of the state of Gujarat. It was set up in 2009 as a private university with the premise of disbursing liberal education to the students enrolled here. It was founded by the 8 decades old Ahmedabad Educational Society (AES) which is a non- profit body. Luminaries from other top education bodies, especially from within the city of Ahmedabad also played their part during the inception of this university. Its Board of Governors is extremely rich with personnel from business, academics, government and non- profits.
The academics is divided into 4 major schools within the university. Three of these schools are for – Computer Studies, Arts & Sciences and Engineering & Applied Science. The School of Management is named after Amrut Mody. At the School of Engineering and Applied Science, BTech, MTech and PhD programmes may be pursued. The BTech programme is available in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and in ICT (Information Communication and Technology). Due to the effective integration between the different school of study here, students can opt for minor specializations from even other schools to what they are enrolled in. A minor in management is common for the engineering aspirants. Students are also required to take up electives from social sciences and natural sciences. Besides the usual MTech options, a unique contribution by the Ahmedabad University is the one with specialization on Data Science and Analytics.
The School of Computer Studies predates this university as it was established in 2000 under a different name, but was later amalgamated within the Ahmedabad University. Its MCA and BCA programmes have already forged a positive reputation for themselves. Besides, there are other, BSc. courses as well on offer. The School of Computer Studies in the Ahmedabad University is an Institutional Member of the Oracle Academy. The School of Arts and Sciences has already made a name for itself among Liberal Arts circles, especially its MA in economics. One can opt for doctoral programmes at each of the schools here. There are integrated programmes as well in each of these schools, running across levels.
The Amrut Mody School of Management has also staked a claim for excellence within professional education. At the undergrad level, there are courses in BBA and B.Com. At the master’s level, besides the usual MBA and the MA in Economics, a unique course is run here. It is the Masters in Management Studies in Heritage Management. This is run in collaboration with the Centre for Heritage Management within the Ahmedabad University itself. The Case Centre is particularly renowned as it has been in the art of developing case studies as part of its research and development work. To facilitate working professionals, especially those in the medical or pharmaceutical line of work, a Global Executive MBA has been started here at the Amrut Mody School of Management. It is done in collaboration with the Rady School of Management in San Diego, which is part of the University of California. Placements have already been a hit here. Major recruiters in recent years from the management courses include the likes of – Asian Paints, Axis Bank, Emami, ICICI Securities, Radio Mirchi, S&P Global, SBI Life Insurance, Trident Group, Karvy Stock Broking, ITC, KPMG, L&T Finance, Naukri.com, Kotak Life Insurance and i- Cube Innovation LLP among others.
The Ahmedabad University has been in the forefront of foreign collaborations as that always helps in cross-functional education. These tie-ups exist with institutes in the USA, UK, Spain, France and Italy. Some of its close foreign collaborators include- the Stanford University, Rady School of Management UC San Diego, University of Bradford, University of Valladolid, University of Ferrara and the Rennes School of Business. The Olin School of Engineering in the USA is particularly proactive in this symbiotic relationship through faculty exchanges and curriculum development collaboration.
In addition to these schools mentioned, the Ahmedabad University has several specialized centres of excellence. One of them is the Centre for Heritage Management as was already discussed. With Ahmedabad being established globally now as a heritage city, such focus towards the conservation and preservation of the same is pertinent. So, a lot of work takes place with citizen groups. Several workshops are held as well. A newsletter is prepared periodically to this end to further transmit information to the people.
Ahmedabad is also a city famous for its business acumen and trading history. That is one of the reasons for the university’s deep focus on entrepreneurship and the start-up ecosystem. It has a Venture Studio dedicated to helping budding entrepreneurs set up their businesses. There is a collaboration to this end with the Centre for Design Research, part of the elite Stanford University in the USA. The Venture Studio has already helped more than 45 ventures incubate in various fields such as transportation, education, health, agriculture, energy and consumer products, besides several others. The Venture Studio is approved by several government bodies, which work closely. It is also a nodal centre for the work of smart cities. A third centre is for Learning Futures. Here, academic writing is an important area where research is done, and further training imparted to hopefuls. Another is the Global Centre for Environment and Energy.
