MMU vs Manav Rachna vs SRM Sonepat [1.5 out of 5 for MMU]

MMU-vs-Manav-Rachna-University-vs-SRM

MMU, Manav Rachna and SRM Sonepat are amongst the cluster of major universities in Haryana

In search of the best universities and colleges across every state in India, we move on to Haryana. Known fondly as the ‘Home of the Gods’, Haryana is a state closely knit with the historical and cultural tendencies of India.

Like any state in India, Haryana has its share of good and mediocre universities and colleges. Arshad Singha, a CS graduate from a university in Haryana explains the scenario of college education in Haryana. ‘Education has changed dramatically in Haryana. Earlier, besides the government colleges, there were a few shanty private colleges which neither had the capability nor the drive to reach the former’s level. The era of cosmopolitan colleges, which is now in its full swing has changed Indian education forever’

Cosmopolitan universities’ is a term coined after the advent of mega universities with huge campuses such as Amity and LPU in North India and VIT and SRM in the South. Bankrolled by a seemingly endless stream of money, these universities do their best to provide the best infrastructure and facilities possible. In return, they charge very high fees compared to government colleges.

Most students go for such colleges since it often proves to be a worthwhile experience. Unlike private colleges of previous years which didn’t have any accreditation or approval, these mega universities strive to compete with the best institutions in the land. Their strong placement record, cogent focus on academics and imperious focus on research and skill-based training have made them an excellent option for aspirants with enough money and resources.

Haryana has also seen its fair share of such colleges. Institutions such as [MMU Vs Manav Rachna Vs SRM Sonepat] Maharishi Markandeshwar University, Manav Rachna International University and SRM Sonepat have drawn several students in Haryana to their doors.

Pooja Rupani, an admission counselor based in Chandigarh gave her two cents over this trend of ‘cosmopolitan universities’. ‘It is nice to see universities with good infrastructural capabilities and faculties being made available to students who’d otherwise have not gotten such privileges. At the same time, we have to remember the primary objective of these colleges. Making money is their foremost target around which other priorities revolve. We often hear stories of students taking education loans to study at such colleges and default later on these debts. All I’d like to put forth is that students should be well-informed before making any decision over matters such as educational loans and a higher body should keep such institutions on close watch ’

Pooja raises an issue of immense importance. While we may praise such universities for providing world-class facilities, it is important to not neglect students who take loans to study at these institutions due to a general lack of means. Besides this, the habit of researching a college or university before taking admission is also necessary. Instead of blindly taking admission to any college, students should research everything about a college. Educational websites, alumni bodies, teachers and peers are all apt sources to gain information about a college.

As we are talking about Haryana, we will look at a few such universities which have made a name for themselves amongst aspiring students.

Maharishi Markandeshwar University (MMU), Ambala

Maharishi Markandeshwar University (MMU) is a privately run educational entity operating out of Ambala, Haryana. Established in 1993, MMU is accredited and approved by AICTE and UGC respectively. The National Accredation and Assessment Council (NAAC) granted MMU an ‘A’ grade, the highest grade it has to offer.

Besides the Ambala campus, MMU has two more sister institutions located in Sadopur and Solan respectively. Both of these institutions operate under the directives of MMU.

Though courses in engineering and management are more popular, other disciplines such as medical sciences, dental science, film acting, modeling, nursing and law are also taught under degree programmes at MMU.

Many facilities such as hostel accommodation, sports complexes, Wi-Fi, post office, hospital, auditorium and transportation facilities are made available to students during their time at MMU.

MMU vs Manav Rachna vs SRM Sonepat

University perception

University perception plays a pivotal role in shaping the opinion about a certain institution. Students are very apprehensive over joining a college which may surround uncertainty.

Infrastructure

It is essential to create the right environment for students to flourish and reach the next level. To create this kind of environment, a university has to develop the necessary infrastructure.
