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. Students enrolled at JLU can also undertake certain online courses and get certified by Harvard Business Publishing. It has also tied up with the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development. This is a World Bank initiative. Other international collaborators include the University of Lincoln, University College London (UCL), University of Arts London (UAL), RMIT University (Melbourne), University of West Los Angeles (UWLA), Imperial College London, Kingston University London, the Sheffield Hallam University and the Guizhou University (China). EY and KPMG are two such corporates with knowledge collaboration agreements.
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. There are sports facilities to pursue football, cricket, basketball, lawn- tennis, table- tennis, swimming and more. Indoor sports facilities are also there, with the gymnasium being particularly well thought of. It has fitness trainers to assist the students. The university has its own blog called the Lake city Brew, which details every event that takes place within JLU. A lecture series known as Igniting Minds is another prominent theme. 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. Some of the prominent companies that have recruited JLU students in recent years include- HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, The Leela, The Oberoi, Muthoot Finance, Red FM, Berger Paints, Radisson Blu, Courtyard Marriot and Jaro Education.
