Uniqueness of Liberal Studies at BML Munjal University
BML Munjal University is a fully residential and co-educational private university located towards northern boundary of Indian capital Delhi NCR in Sidhrawali, Gurgaon district, Haryana, India. The University was founded by the promoters of the Hero Group, and is named after the group's chairman and founder Brij Mohan Lall Munjal.
BML Munjal University (BMU), an ideal place for the students of South Asian countries, seeks to transform higher education of international standard by creating a world-class, innovation-led, teaching, learning and research environment.
Established in 2014 by the founders of the Hero Group and mentored by Imperial College London, BMU provides inter-disciplinary learning and transformative education that empowers students to become innovators, risk-takers and leaders who can take on the future.
Named after the chairman and founder of the Hero Group, Dr. Brijmohan Lall Munjal, BML Munjal University is engaged in creating, preserving and imparting internationally benchmarked knowledge and skills to a diverse community of students from across the world.
BMU’s aim is to nurture ethical leaders who are skilled, knowledgeable and have the life skills needed to lead organisations to success. Meanwhile, newly established the School of Liberal Studies (SoLS) at BMU offers a four-year B.A. (Hons) degree with a third-year exit option. In SoLS programme, students are expected to take charge of their own academic path, working with the support of faculty mentors and career counselors to choose a major that makes sense for their professional, personal, and civic goals. Successful applicants will be able to choose from any of the six majors the university offer, and students will not be required to declare their major until the middle of the second year.
During their first three semesters, students will complete required foundational courses while exploring their intellectual interests through electives. The second and third years will be devoted to major and minor coursework, while fourth and final year will focus on individual research, internships, and vocational training. All students, regardless of major, will have the option of pursuing electives through any of BMU’s other fours schools (Engineering and Technology, Commerce and Economics, Management, and Law).
A Liberal Studies education trains students to think critically, creatively, and compassionately about the world and themselves. The most pressing issues of our time–climate change, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, social inequality, public health, urban growth, rural development, and challenges to democratic institutions–cannot be addressed by any one discipline alone.
That is why a Liberal Studies programme aims to equip students with disciplinary training as well as a rigorous, interdisciplinary foundation that spans the natural sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. This emphasis on depth and breadth prepares graduates to think creatively about real-world problems from multiple angles and to communicate their ideas effectively to diverse audiences.
