Mewar University Nurturing Learners Into Practitioners
The economy and the society have entered a phase of dramatic transformation in the new millennium. The new era is conceived as the age of information, where an understanding and knowledge of professional education is the gateway to success. In the Indian context with revolutionary changes in the policy of the government, liberalisation of the economy and globalisation of the market, a new brand of professionals are destined to play a significant and key role in shaping the future society, as well as the world of business.
This is the era of focused education. After finishing the basic education students need to prepare for a vibrant career. It is a wide world that beckons the new millennium managers and young management blues who are top-placement aspirants. There is an open field with wide spectrum and a versatile team of veteran players to show the path. This is the most crucial phase for a student who is in search of fresh opportunities, greater responsibilities and a new career. Thus, the right choice will be the passport to a glorious future. Right choice entails a student not only the study programme he opts, but also the educational environment where he pursue higher education.

It is controlled by a Board of Management, constituted by MES, which is headed by Chairperson Ashok Gadia, a great visionary, educationist, nationalist figure, who translated his ideas and dreams of promoting higher education into reality by setting up institutes of learning in various subjects, carving a niche as an educationist and aiding inculcation of values in the young generation. The University campus is situated in the vicinity of the scenic Aravali ranges and spread over sprawling 30 acres at Gangrar in the Chittorgarh District (Rajasthan), just 18-km away from the city of Chittorgarh.

The nearest airport is Dabhok (Udaipur), which is 100-km away from the campus and is well-connected with major cities through regular flights.
