About College

The Jagran Lake city University (JLU) was established in Bhopal in 2013. The name is highly befitting considering that Bhopal is known as the city of lakes, such is the beauty of the city. The Jagran Social Welfare Society has been extremely active in and around Bhopal for several years, so opening up of the university was a natural step in the right direction. 

The JLU is a full- fledged university imparting training in multiple study areas. The broad areas of engineering, management, law, journalism, social sciences, humanities, hospitality, commerce, education and sports science are catered to. Separate schools take care of these areas. The schools are for- Law, Business, Journalism & Mass Communication, Commerce & Economics, Education, Hospitality & Tourism, Humanities & Arts, Engineering & Technology and Sports Science & Physical Education. Undergrad courses are available in all shapes and hues. The sheer diversity of options that students get here is mind- boggling. Some of the unique options here are- BFA (Digital Film Making and VFX), BBA (Hons.) Strategic Finance, B. Tech Computer Science & Engineering (Cloud Computing & Cyber Security/ Artificial Intelligence) and B. Tech Civil Engineering (Infrastructure Development/Project Management). Postgrad and diploma courses are also available. JLU is aware that for all kinds of professional success, extremely important is soft skills. That is why there is a JLU Center for Professional Skills. Here employability training is given where stress, time and conflict management are areas of concern. Soft skills, body language, business English, technical communication and negotiation skills are also trained for here. 

In addition to these schools, there are also specialized centres of excellence which deal with particular matters to do with applied research. So, there are Centres of Excellence in – CSR, Teacher Training, Nano Technology and Paver Technology. Specialized labs also exist for further research on Media, Engineering and Hospitality. The JLU has also received multiple accreditations. It is a member of the CII (Confederation of Indian Industries) and AIMA (All India Management Association). Its law course is approved by the ICADR (International Centre for Alternate Dispute Resolution), while the media school is a member of the Film Society of India. Its education programmes are recognized by the NCTE (National Council for Teacher Education).

The Jagran Lake city University in Bhopal has been extremely proactive in forging international ties for academic and research collaborations. Its design programmes have been developed in collaboration with the Design Tech CAD Academy. The JLU is also a local facilitator for the US-CMA and the UK-CIMA certifications.

The Jagran Lake city University in Bhopal has a lot of options for students to pursue their hobbies and interests. The academic bloc’s design is inspired by the famous Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. It is known as the Resource Centre, and is centrally air- conditioned. The JLU mess is handled by its own committee, and utmost care is taken to ensure quality as well as hygiene standards for the students and staff.

Top speakers from around the country, or sometimes even outside visit and share their inputs with the students. 

JLU even has its own in-house research publication known as Jagran International Journal on Contemporary Research. All this has helped achieve a certain level of diversity in campus that has always been an aim for the college. This has further fuelled JLU’s rise to high ranks on several indicators. The Careers 360 magazine has rated the JLU as the only private university in central India with an AA+ rating. It has also been recognized as the “Best University in Central India” by Silicon India 2015. Several other publications and forums too have recognized the excellence that JLU brings to academics. In such a short duration of time, JLU alumni have already made a name for themselves in various industries.

Journey of A Jagranite

Batch of Jan. 1, 2017 | B.Com Hons
When any person enters Jagran Lakecity University the first thought that comes to that person's mind is Wow!! What an infrastructure.It is the most beautiful campus one may have ever seen. The faculties at Jagran can be your best mentor as well as best frnds. They are the one who actually help you adapt to a totally new environment very easily. The are well qualified and have vast knowledge in their respective subjects. They are always there to guide and support you in all situations.Talking about the crowd its very sophisticated, friendly and such which can give you memories and friends for lifetime. In other words they are the best part of Jagran.One of the most wonderful thing of Jagran is it celebrate and give importance ti all religious festivals being it Ganesh Chaturthi, Janamasthmi or Lodhi. Also its one of the best colleges for students for who are a sports person. But as everything on this planet has pros and cons, so do Jagran. Talking about cons of Jagran it lacks way behind in providing placements to new talent and giving them industry exposure. Also the books available in its Resource Centre is very limited. Hope Jagran pays attention to these issues and list its name among top colleges of world.

It's a place where you get the right resources and atmosphere to excel in your life. The infrastructure of the university is very well developed. Every classroom is well equipped. The faculty is well qualified and also equally energetic to teach and indulge students in various school activities. We have all law school activities like debates, moots, editorials and also participate outside the university in various competitions. Also, we have sports activities and participate in sports fests outside. In the library, we are provided with a lot of books for reference and also we have manupatra excess. We are always supported and guided for our internships as well. Also, we have a compulsory summer internship, which is a unique concept. We have igniting mind lecture series in which experts from different places are called to deliver the lecture which really helps the student to understand the law as well as opportunities outside. Every single facility provided is done while keeping in mind the dynamic nature of industries. And this makes JLU a wonderful place to study Law.

If you are willing to work according to the guidelines of the faculty, you can definitely achieve great things. We are challenged at every step and the institute works tirelessly to improve our skills and make us more capable of being achievers out there in the world. The college has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. And that is not an empty claim. goggle it anytime and you'll see foe yourself. Come visit us and its a guarantee, you will be awed. College life is good, not great, but good. The isolation of the campus works sometimes as a plus as well a negative. The overtly disciplined life that we are made to lead is while for our own good, still somewhat irritating at times.Internships are made mandatory. Constant industry exposure let's us know about the most recent developments in the industry. Though it is an active concern that we should be allowed to have more that 1 internships in one year.The faculty is amazing, majority of them are National graduates. The crowd is that of a typical law school. The people want to do good do just that, and those who lag behind as constantly motivated by the peers and the faculty alike to do better.The approx fees is 1 lakh for a year, (excluding transport and boarding). Scholarships are also available.
