Sonipat: Writing a new chapter in its institutional history, O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) has made it to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023 for two subject areas - Law & Legal Studies and Business & Management Studies. It is the fourth time in a row that QS has ranked JGLS as India’s No. 1 law school.
While Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) has emerged as India’s No. 1 Law School for the fourth year in a row in the prestigious rankings, Jindal Global Business School (JGBS) has entered the QS World University Rankings by subject for the first time.
Reacting to this remarkable achievement, Mr. Naveen Jindal, Founding Chancellor, O.P. Jindal Global University, said, “The consistency with which JGLS has been featured as the country’s top law school in the prestigious QS World University Rankings points to the fact that it has never wavered in its mission of providing world-class education in India.
The emergence of JGLS as India’s No. 1 law school in just over a decade of its existence also signifies the thirst for quality education among the youth of the country. It is a matter of immense pride for me that JGLS has been successful in fulfilling their aspirations. I am confident that the dedication of the faculty and staff of JGU will inspire us to remain steadfast in our commitment to raising the bar of legal education.”
On the achievement of JGBS, Mr. Jindal said, “The Jindal Global Business School was set up with the aim of becoming a top destination for global education. The recognition of JGBS as one of India’s Top-20 business schools is a giant step in that direction. It is a result of the collaborative effort of the stellar faculty and staff who have nurtured an environment where students can thrive as they get the training to become global business leaders.
I am sure this recognition will bolster the efforts to make JGBS one of the finest business schools in the world which can be a guiding light in solving the biggest problems that our planet faces today.”
Sharing his thoughts on the new rankings results, Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University stated, “The inspiring leadership of our Founding Chancellor, Mr. Naveen Jindal, has been key to steering JGLS to the top-most position among the law schools in India and JGBS among the Top-20 business schools of the country.
The significance of these achievements lies in the fact that Indian institutions have traditionally fared poorly in global rankings due to their inadequate focus on research quality. What has helped JGU buck this trend is the creation of a support system which includes a generous incentive structure for encouraging impactful research of the highest standards by the faculty members. It is heartening to note that in 2022, JGLS faculty members have published 123 research articles in SCOPUS-indexed journals, while JGBS has produced 242 Scopus-indexed research publications during the calendar year 2022.
Significantly, these efforts of JGU are in line with the vision of promoting research underlined in the National Education Policy 2020.”
“It is not just in producing top quality research that JGU has aced. It has raised the bar in teaching by hiring top-notch global talents from academia and the industry, promoting interdisciplinary education and collaborating with the renowned universities in the world. The world-class facilities at the JGU campus and placement support have also gone a long way in helping the students realise their full potential,” he said.
Commenting on the accomplishment, Professor (Dr.) S.G. Sreejith, Executive Dean, JGLS said, “At JGLS, all our efforts have been directed towards realising the vision of our founders who have relentlessly pursued the dream of providing world class legal education in Indian soil. The recognition of JGLS as India’s No. 1 law school in the QS World University Rankings by Subject is a testament to the dedication of our faculty members towards equipping our students with the knowledge and skills required for becoming leaders and change-makers in their respective fields and beyond.”
