Azim Premji University-Bangalore

Azim Premji University has a clear social purpose – to make significant contributions towards a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. The University aspires to do this through the development of talent and the creation of knowledge which can facilitate systemic change in education and allied development areas. This is an explicit commitment to the idea that knowledge and learning have human and social consequences and that their pursuit cannot be separated from these consequences.

The roots of Azim Premji University lie in the learning and experience of a decade of work in elementary education by Azim Premji Foundation. The University is one of the key responses to the constraints and challenges confronting the education and development sectors in India. It is also the direct result of a purposeful philanthropic initiative and which by definition is not-for-profit in its orientation.

The University's interim campus is located within the premises of the PES School of Engineering on Hosur Road, Bangalore. The campus is spread over 12 acres and offers facilities and amenities that enable a comfortable and vibrant student experience.

The Azim Premji University is committed to developing outstanding leaders in Education and Development by fostering a vibrant, multi-disciplinary learning environment.

According to Anurag Behar who is the Vice Chancellor of Azim Premji University, "India is lacking professionals in education and development sector. The purpose of these programmes is to create professionals for these fields. After which the students will be able to join NGOs working in education and development sector or multinational organizations, government working in education and development areas."

Career opportunities and Placement support

The University provides all students with placement support for careers with NGOs, multilateral agencies, government and industry.

Azim Premji Foundation itself plans to hire over 4000 professionals in the next 4 years and will consider a significant number of students for employment. Further, suitable students with work experience of 2 or more years will be considered for pre programme employment offers from the Foundation at the time of admission and may join the Foundation on successful programme completion.

The education and development sectors are growing rapidly and require talent. There is a shortage of development & education professionals (teachers, teacher educators, policy experts, specialists, administrators)
