More about Ashoka University
Ashoka University is a new addition to the upcoming arena of liberal arts, a field which derives its inspiration from all round and ethical development of individuals to become global leaders, or as in the vision of the founders of the university, Nobel Laureates. The main vision of the University is to create such leaders and the world which was envisioned by the ancient Emperor Ashoka, almost two thousand years ago.
Since the concept of Liberal Arts is not very popular in India, the University has tie-ups and collaborations with the topmost universities abroad, Including Stanford, Penn and many others.
What was initially supposed to be started as an engineering institution, the actual implementation turned out to be bent towards the social, sciences, humanities, taught in a comprehensive manner, which can all be put under the single umbrella of the Liberal Arts.
