Our host partner

Greetings from Amity University

Amity University is privileged to partner with Times Higher Education in convening the THE India Universities Forum on 16-17 January 2020 at the Amity campus in the National Capital Region of Delhi, India.

We appreciate the deep and strategic insights offered by THE on higher education, and share its drive and vision that supports university excellence in every continent across the world.

A great aspect of the higher education community globally is the openness to share best practices to ensure a collective improvement in quality – an area that THE has been successfully leading for many years. I am confident that this august gathering of luminaries from leading institutions across the country and the world will take big strides in furthering the level of education and provide a platform to forge lasting relationships.

I look forward to welcoming you to Amity University for the THE India Universities Forum.

Amity University – India’s #1 ranked not-for-profit private University

Amity University, located in the National Capital Region of New Delhi, is India’s number one ranked not-for-profit private university for the past seven years, according to India Today. With a strong focus on research and innovation, Amity is also Asia’s only university to attain US regional accreditation and successful quality review by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, setting a new benchmark of academic excellence in India.

The university is part of the not-for-profit Amity Education Group, established more than two decades ago by the industrialist and philanthropic Chauhan Family. The group is driven by its vision of building a global knowledge network providing world-class education. It is comprised of nine universities, 26 schools and 16 international campuses in London, Singapore, Dubai, New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Mauritius, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Tashkent, Nairobi and South Africa.

Today, Amity has over 175,000 students from pre-nursery to PhD levels, pursuing more than 400 programmes in 60 diverse disciplines. Attracting some of the most brilliant students, Amity has instituted India’s largest private scholarship programme which has benefited more than 15,000 students and PhD fellows.

Amity’s strong focus on research and innovation has led to the filing of more than 1,200 patents, which according to the controller general of patents in India, is the highest number of patents filed by any Indian university. Amity is also engaged in conducting more than 300 high-end government-funded as well as international research projects, including those funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, United States Agency for International Development and the Leverhulme Trust, UK.

In the field of management, the university has developed more than 2,500 case studies in recent years that have been bought in 106 countries by over 2,300 leading institutions and organisations such as Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Oxford, McKinsey and KPMG, among others.

The university has also pioneered the concept of industry-led institutions where leading organisations such as multinational conglomerate Tata, the UK’s Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Chartered Insurance Institute have set up institutions in partnership with Amity on campus.

The award-winning Innovation Incubator on campus has nurtured more than 100 companies and attracted investments of over US$40 million. The campus also has many high-end research centres, including ones set up with Nobel laureates.
