Gujarat has traditionally been recognized for its entrepreneurial leanings and not for its ability to develop professionally trained human resources. This however, is changing very rapidly as the Government of Gujarat has embarked on a mission to make Gujarat an Education Hub for the country. The efforts are directed not only towards attracting students from other states within the country but also from other countries.
Realizing this importance and potential of good quality higher education
in the state of Gujarat, Rai University came up in the year 2012.
Rai University, established by Gujarat State Legislature under Gujarat
Act No. 12 of 2012, promises to fulfill its mandate of nurturing young
minds, developing intellectual and professional faculties with a service
to the cause of society. It is the mission of Rai University to develop
young leaders capable of providing insightful direction to any organization
and thereby creating a knowledgeable, loyal and dedicated human resource.
Rai University is an institution committed to excellence in teaching
and in an ever-increasing manner, to research and development. Increasingly,
it is about judging performance in the context of achievable but challenging
benchmarks, thinking more globally, establishing international relationships,
and generally making the university an exciting academic place to
be. Expectations about academic performance predominate over all other
matters. In order to accomplish it's vision and mission, the university
is prepared to take as much effort as possible for the betterment
of academic scenario in Gujarat. The University believes that education
is an effective medium of social transformation. In fact, Rai University
feels privileged that we got an opportunity to establish such an excellent
institute, which can shape modern Gujarat.
Rai University is dedicated to the removal of barriers that restrict
access to and success in higher level education and to increasing
equality of educational opportunity for adult learners.

and work at your own pace, studying at home, at work or wherever you
may find yourself.

learning models and technology-based alternatives to traditional,
