Vice Chancellor’s Message

I have great pleasure in announcing the launch of the fifth batch of the Jindal Global Summer School under the aegis of the International Institute for Higher Education Research & Capacity Building (IIHEd) of the O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed To Be University) with two different programme offerings:

  • Aspire India Scholars Programme (AISP) 2024
  • BeSingular Future Leaders Programme (FLP) 2024

  • JGSS provides a unique summer school experience for 10 days. This year, the summer school will be held on campus at OP Jindal Global University, Sonipat from June 4–14, 2024. This year’s summer school has been designed by JGU Faculty in collaboration with an external industry partner to offer two separate interdisciplinary programmes. One of them is our established liberal arts and social science based Aspire India Scholars Programme and the other new programme being offered this year is STEM and social science based BeSingular Future Leaders Programme.

    AISP-2024 curriculum will help students get a global perspective, learn how to be more holistic, and think about ethical issues through theme-based modules in 12 interdisciplinary areas: Law, Justice, and Democracy; Business Management, Leadership, and Entrepreneurship; Diplomacy, International Relations, and Peace; Economy, Public Policy, and Development; Liberal Arts, Culture, and Humanities; Media Communication and Public Affairs; Art, Architecture & Design; Banking, Finance and Accounting; and Climate Change, Environment & Sustainability; Psychology & Counselling; Languages and Literature; and Public Health and Human Development. FLP-2024 has been designed to provide critical future skills through an immersive and interdisciplinary set of courses in STEM and Social Sciences. It is an Indo-German Global Summer Residential Summer School for transformative learning. The India chapter of the FLP will be held at JGU campus which will help students foster a forward-thinking mindset to visualize and solve future challenges. After attending JGSS-2024, the students will have a better knowledge and perspectives on the various options and opportunities available for higher education in India and abroad. Various industry experts across age-groups and from diverse professional fields will also address our summer school students. The participants will learn about their experiences and their transition from high school to higher education to industry. Students will learn about their successes, as well as failures, which eventually became pillars of their success. Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice-Chancellor, O.P.
