LPU envisages to produce a knowledge based society. We think that this can be reached about only through quality planning, expertise, training and student involvement.

Director General

Executive Dean
A University education is an adventure in learning and a discovery that will enable you to explore and discover your passions and talents. Education doesn't start in the classroom and certainly doesn't end there. We, at LPU, believe in this notion and thence to do justice to it, we engage our students in the unique concept of 'experiential learning'. We invite you to join us for an educational experience that nurtures a spirit of inquiry and enterprise in a global setting. LPU is a University that goes out to the world as well as brings the world to our campus.

LPU academics are at the forefront of discussion and research in all fields. Through enrolling at LPU you get the benefit of their expertise experience and knowledge.

LPU has long been known for its innovative approach to education , one that encourages students not only to acquire knowledge but to learn to apply that knowledge to important problems, producing solutions that have a positive impact on their professions and on society.

If you join us at LPU at any stage in your education, you will recognize our endeavors in the form of sporting and cultural initiatives, geared towards the fulfillment of our promise. Every now and then, you will witness national and international music bands, athletes and politicians in the campus. Your schedule will never have a blank space at any hour of the day due to all the opportunities and interactions available to you.

LPU is constantly ranked among the top 3 universities in India. Our unique curriculum has made us a model for change in higher education in this country. Today LPU continues to affirm its status as a university with a difference. While recognizing the importance of tradition , LPU's defining characteristic is its ability to step outside the bounds of convention. It's a university comfortable with innovation as it continue to redefine itself in terms of its relationship with industry and society. So by studying at LPU you'll be learning to think as well as learning to do. You'll be prepared to enter the profession of your choice. You'll be equipped with that is required to make an immediate and lasting contribution to industry and society. This approach to education is what we call “The Lovely Experience”. I believe that, this prospectus will further showcase our approach to this notion and make things clearer. Meanwhile, put a deep thought into your higher education and make an informed decision. Your friends will not be your immediate neighbors; if you chose to enroll in the hostel, you can expect a roommate from Assam, Rajasthan, J&K and even Sudan! In addition to this integrated global experience, you will be beguiled by the openness and health of teacher-student and senior-junior interaction. With our belief in transparent governance, the rather unpopular communication gap between the management and the students is also considerably reduced.

“So far as I am able to judge , nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extra ordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.” Mark Twain

Few countries in the world have such an ancient and diverse culture as India. Stretching back in an unbroken sweep over 5000 years, India's culture has been enriched by successive waves of migration which were absorbed into the Indian way of life. It is this variety which is a special hallmark of India. Its physical, religious and racial variety is as immense as its linguistic diversity. India has a rich tradition of learning and education right from the antiquity. Varanasi, Taxila , Kanchi ,Nalanda and Ujjain were the Centres of learning for the people from all corners of the world.

The global financial meltdown has posed challenges which are going to put the management skills of the boom time managers to real test. Majority of the organisations are exercising utmost caution, putting expansion plans on hold, attempting downsizing , imposing wage cuts or cost controls to weather the storm, which most hope should not last beyond 2010. However, the daring ones and the innovators are still upbeat and have chalked out elaborate expansion plans. They are confident of keeping their coffers ringing as in normal times. The real test of management skills lie in converting challenges, such as above, into opportunities. Survival and growth strategies in periods of economic downturn provide interesting case studies for students, teachers, policy makers and practitioners of management. This is the right time to evaluate corporate

policies and strategies, the application of concepts and theories, to finally realign goals and strategies. At LPU, students of Management programmes can look forward to authentic, interesting and rigorous inputs which would help them to thoroughly understand contemporary situations, their policy implications and prepare them to take informed decisions. The students planning to join us should be prepared for experiential learning and a lot of hard work in terms of self study, case discussions and attempting assignments etc. It will be our endeavour to groom them into well chiselled professionals, ready to be recruited by the corporate houses.

This phase shift between technology into

The current health scenario in India demands that vertical interventions for disease control be integrated into a comprehensive horizontal approach. The health services focuses only on the treatment of a disease and are able to achieve only fragmented success. For a more effective approach, we need to bring together the safest and most effective aspects of mainstream medical science and the complementary healthcare. The critical components of this approach would include the preventive, diagnostic, curative and rehabilitative aspects. The Lovely Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences consists of the Lovely School of Applied Medical Sciences and Lovely Institute of Technology (Pharmacy). Disciplines represented in the School include Pharmaceutical Sciences, Ayurvedic Pharmaceutical Sciences and

Physiotherapy. There has been a remarkable scientific progress in all these areas providing unprecedented opportunities to the next generation. In line with the advancement in the field, there is a real need to train the supportive healthcare personnel of high quality to collaborate with the medical treatment. The training of these professionals, therefore, becomes absolutely indispensable as one of the wheels of the medical sciences.

Nurturing faculty

LPU believes in recruiting the best faculty for perfect academic delivery. Many of our teachers are selected from the best institutes across India like the IITs\IIITs\IIMs\IBS etc. The University encourages and provides active support to its faculty to conduct research, publish textbooks and undertake projects and also sponsoring them to national and international conferences and workshops. We also organize several Professional Development Programmes at the university level throughout the year. Faculty Development Programmes [FDPs] and Faculty Training Sessions [FTSs] are organized to equip our educators with the best and the latest. The training department of the university conducts these specialized sessions for the faculty. Special guest-speakers are invited for these development programmes. The senior functionaries of the university also conduct these sessions .

List of FDP Sessions
+ Learning Management System / University Management System + Paper setting guidelines + Examination system and processes + Pedagogy + Classroom management + Tutoring/ home assignments and term papers. + Academic honesty and conduct + Assessing resource material + teaching Lab + Lecture delivery + Entrepreneurship development and projects + Communication skills

+ Teachers in LPU are easily approachable and available

for individual consultation and problem-solving. We believe that regular personal contact with the teachers beyond the classroom is extremely important.

The Flexibile Approach
The flexibile approach of the academic system gives an opportunity to students to elect one or two courses corresponding to either their branch of study, or to gain exposure in their area of interest. These open and socialscience elective courses which are offered in most of our programmes not only broaden the outlook of our students but also increase their employability. Faculty members and students meet periodically to tackle classroom-related issues, bringing out the best in the teachers and the students and ultimately enhancing the teaching-learning process. The benefit of the tutorial system is that students receive direct feedback on their assignment, test, projects etc. in a small discussion setting. Student tutorials are more academically challenging and rigorous than standard lecture and tests because during each session students are expected to communicate defend analysis and critique their ideas in conversation with teacher and fellow students. As a pedagogic model the tutorial system has great value because it creates learning and assessment opportunities which are highly authentic and difficult to fake.

How we Teach
We have a variety of teaching methods combining the lecture with seminar teaching, tutorials, case based teaching, group discussions, video and slide shows, problem solving demonstrations, role plays, closing quizzes, team based group projects and laboratory-based practicals. The university is proud of its small group teaching methods which help in developing analytical, application, presentation, and communication skills. All of these skills are highly valued by employers. Our relentless pursuit in teaching excellence has become a way of life for us.





How our programmes work
Our programmes consist of courses taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you will receive credit for courses you have successfully completed. Therefore, throughout your programme, you will have a clear report of your academic progress. All our programmes are composed of core courses and optional courses, providing you some flexibility and the opportunity to pursue specializations in the area of your interest.

Board of Studies & School-Level Committees ensure high standards of the academic programmes and also enrich the programmes with emerging issues of current importance that are relevant to the industry and the society. LPU is committed to develop industry relevant programmes and delivering the same in the most effective manner. To realize the same, LPU delivers curriculum using a unique education model.

This is done in consultation with, and contributions from senior academicians

and based on inputs from industry, as well as using feedback collected from students. Our web servers provide the curriculum delivery platform which allows faculty members to make all of our course content available to students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Course Co-coordinators provide a unique support role to the numerous instructors delivering the same course. The course co-coordinators assigned to specific courses, interact with

instructors to provide advise on successful course delivery, most appropriate answers to assignments and course updates and provide valuable follow-up support to initial instructor training and orientation. Student feedback is an important part of LPU’s teaching. At the end of every term students are asked to provide their inputs which are then shared with faculty members. Based on the feedback, course content and teaching pedagogy are revised to enhance student learning.

The brand recall of an educational institution depends on a host of factors which primarily include eminence of faculty, infrastructure and the quality of students it churns out. Thus the students that become employable must be adequately equipped in terms of knowledge of their streams and personality traits establishing their presence, poise and perfection in real working environment. We at Lovely Professional University endeavour to position ourselves as a place of learning which is recognized not just as any other organization which confines its role to teaching alone but as a vibrant campus which believes in creating a 'total personality' student who can prove equal to any challenge. The Academia Industry Division of LPU strives to carve a niche for itself in the corporate world by adding value to their profit chain. Apart from offering a huge industry-ready talent pool to the industry, the university has established its credentials as a serious player which is in sync with and alive to the needs of the industry. Thus

the university is committed to creating a dynamic two way collaborative interface with the industry to elicit the needs of the industry vis-à-vis curriculum so that a regime which rests on the maxim of 'technology based curriculum' is firmly established. As a corollary, this scenario would result in saving a lot of time and resources for the industry which it would have otherwise spent on training students. Another dimension, though intangible, which LPU is working on is to ensure that the education and industry domain overlap with each other so that the talent pool available with us takes up research based projects, product development and commissioned consultancies and adds to the productivity of the organizations apart from rationalizing their expenditure on such activities. The placement profile of the university even in these challenging times is encouraging and the campus continues to be a favourite destination for big corporate banners which is a reflection on our education mantra of “Transforming Education, Transforming India”.

Employability of LPU Students:
On account of the strong conceptual foundations, capacity to work and exposure to real-life work conditions, there is a strong demand for LPU students amongst employers-multi-nationals and other prestigious organizations. The AII has well established links with a large number of employers, many of whom keep visiting the campus to interact with the students. The vocational focus of many of the courses and integrated periods of industrial training help to develop the maturity and employability of the students. Employers are also aware of LPU's reputation of academic rigour.

Why LPU Students stand out
Employers look for many other qualities alongwith academic achievement. Our students acquire a range of skills and experiences whilst at LPU to compete most effectively in the recruitment market. Exposure to teamwork, problem solving, leadership and communication skills is provided by encouraging the students to take up responsible position by involving them in hobbies and sports and by specially structured personality development programmes. The Careers Advisory Service helps students to plan their career development. The university encourages students to start thinking about their options early and runs many early bird programmes to help first and second year students to find vacation work within the campus. Earn while you

learn drive, allows LPU students to find employment within the University campus and also make money.

LPU organizes comprehensive personality development programmes, which are in consonance with the requirements of the employers to develop students’ employability skills and make them aware of the range of occupations available to them. The students are invited to attend a range of events and career fairs to talk to employers about opportunities. We are consciously working towards a regime wherein industry’s aspirations for recruiting plug and play kind of employees are met by imparting special skills to the students like awareness about corporate culture aptitude etc.

Time in LPU was a transitional period of my life. LPU provided me with everything that is required for the overall growth of any student. The University provides one with the highest standards of education in a vast variety of disciplines, hi-tech infrastructure and brilliant faculty. Rather, I feel that the faculty of the University is the real force in marking the success of its students in their respective fields. I will always remain thankful to my alma mater for moulding my academic life and making me think big in life. Manavdeep Singh Randhawa Professional Achievements : FIMC award in Wipro Technologies

This is a tentative schedule of our MBA students a similar schedule is followed for all other programmes as well.



“You learn more quickly under the guidance of experienced teachers. You waste a lot of time going down blind alleys if you have no one to lead you.” The LPU learning environment makes the students so comfortable that they not only learn more, but are more - W. Somerset Maugham comfortable asking questions and getting extra help. This makes it easier to understand new material and do their best on tests. When one has this kind of relationship with a teacher, he or she can be someone to turn to with problems, such as problems with learning .


Senior - Junior Relationship
A good senior- junior relationship is required for a healthy educational environment and a progressive society. We try our best to help the seniors and juniors to connect with each other by bringing them together for freshers parties and other such events. A mentoring relationship can be very important because of its potential to inculcate habits of responsible conduct . The senior junior relationship at LPU is a functional one. Free and friendly interaction is encouraged so that the new joinees feel at home and are comfortable in their new environment.

Teacher – Student Relationship
The student-teacher relationship is the basis of any effective academic environment. We believe that love and understanding in this relationship is as important a factor as objectivity. A dedicated and sincere teacher is an absolute necessity for any educational institution, but the institution cannot grow and mature without a cadre of equally dedicated and sincere students. We think that both instructor and student owe a debt of responsibility to each other, that can never be paid back. It is for this reason alone that we give special orientation lectures to our teachers from time to time. We know that a healthy student- teacher relationship makes the time a student spends in the classroom more pleasant.



“Gurdas Mann Nite”

But what added to the significance of the event was that it was a solely student managed affair, with all aspects being arranged and Excellence in co-curricular and extra curricular activities is encouraged by opening of avenues for students to develop a well-rounded personality. We believe that cocurricular, extra -curricular, sports and recreational activities are an integral part of education. We take sports and recreation very seriously, and have the facilities and expertise to support this commitment. We provide everything required to enable University members to enjoy sport, regardless of ability. The extensive provision of a wide variety of playing fields add to the character of the University. taken care of, by the students, on their own.

‘Utsav 08’ :
The spiritual festival organized by Art of Living Foundation at LPU saw enthusiastic participation by students and staff members of LPU, in addition to substantial number of outsiders. The programme was organized with active participation by WAYE (World Alliance for Youth Empowerment), youth NGO founded by the inspiration of Poojya Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji. LPU is the second university after Mumbai University in India which has organized this mega event for the benefit of youth. The Festival did not limit itself to spirituality related issues, but also gave profound importance to students’ building confidence, increasing concentration power, seeking clarity of mind, enriching interpersonal relationships, developing physical and mental fitness and cultivating leadership - all of which was delivered in a very enjoyable, action oriented and fun filled manner.



LPU is always humming with activity - academic, co curricular and extra curricular all the year round. At LPU, we believe that only academic input is not a complete way to achieve the goal of an individual’s development. Rather an all round development of both faculty & students is envisaged through the organization of various recreational activities to break the monotony of work & studies. The extra-curricular activities ranging from sports, theatre, fests and competitions are organized, managed and appreciated by the students themselves for infusion of self confidence, self esteem and managerial skills.
