In the past generations, higher studies in India have more or less been decided based on many random factors such as: parents’ opinion-they would often want you to follow their profession and be what they are, or worse still, what they could not be and therefore want you to be!
It could be based on latest trends or fads (who is getting maximum salary in the job market?), your percentage and the cut off percentages in leading universities and colleges of Delhi etc.
Today’s average school passout thankfully, has a clear idea about what they want to do and where they want to study. Here is a campus that offers so much in terms of infrastructure and ambience that the best reason to join G D Goenka University is, well GDGU itself! Located on a salubrious stretch of lush green surroundings on the foothills of Aravalis on Sohna Road in Gurgaon, this campus beckons students with its one of a kind culture and allure.
