Ashoka University is a pioneer in its focus on providing a liberal education at par with the best in the world. The aim at Ashoka is to help students become well-rounded individuals who can think critically about issues from multiple perspectives, communicate effectively and become leaders with a commitment to public service.
An Ashoka education carries a strong emphasis on foundational knowledge, thorough academic research based on rigorous pedagogy, and hands-on experience with real-world challenges. It prepares students to be ethical leaders in a diverse and complex world, the kind envisioned by Emperor Ashoka two thousand years ago.
Ashoka University was set up on the collective philanthropy model. As of yet, 90+ founders have contributed over 115 million dollars to support this initiative because they believe in the philosophy of Ashoka. We are privileged to have some of the best internationally recogised scholars as faculty members, many of whom moved from various prestigious institutions in order to teach at Ashoka.
