    Pros

    One of the top five universities in the country. Nominated by UGC as University with potential for excellence. Has many Center for Excellence. Much less bureaucratic in structure than most universities, much more democratic and free spirited than them. With its free and cordial atmosphere, one of the most desired campus for academicians.

    Cons

    Needs to improve on exposure. Needs more efficiency on the digital front and information flow. Must increase space to accommodate upcoming new age departments. Has to promote the brand all over the world.

    Advice to Management

    Start opening up exam centers in other cities to attract the best students in all fields from all over the country. Promote the fellowships and scholarships to attract best of the lot academicians.
