Amity was a vision that began way back in 1986, when Dr. Ashok K. Chauhan, an industrialist, a visionary, and a philanthropist, whilst based in West Germany, dreamt of a movement called Amity to revolutionize education and research across India and the world.

The Amity Group, today, has over 200,000 students studying across 11 universities and 28 Schools and Pre-Schools offering 400+ programs. It not only has a national presence spread across 23 Indian states but has established global campuses spanning London, New York, Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, San Francisco, Singapore, Amsterdam, Tashkent and South Africa.

Right from its inception, Amity has been focused on raising overall standards by benchmarking as best in the world by putting greater emphasis on research, innovation and employability.

Today, the Amity faculties, comprising leading scientists and researchers have filed over 1880 patents - by far the highest number of patents filed by any individual Indian institute. In the field of management, the university has developed more than 3,200 case studies in recent years that have been bought in 106 countries by over 2,300 leading institutions and organizations.

The university has also pioneered the concept of industry-led institutions where leading organizations such as the multinational conglomerate Tata, the UK’s Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) have set up institutions in partnership with Amity on campus.

Attracting some of the most brilliant students, Amity has instituted India’s largest private scholarship programs, benefitting over 25,000 students. These students are blazing a trail of success, having filed over a hundred patents and published over thousand and five hundred Scopus Indexed Research Papers.

Its diverse and far reaching endeavors in the field of education have led Amity University to rank among the top 3% universities globally by QS and THE (the world’s leading university ranking organizations).

Amity has also set a new standard of academic excellence in India by becoming Asia’s only not-for-profit university awarded by US Regional Accreditation as well as India’s only university to be accredited by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

The University has taken key initiatives such as

  • Employability Skill Building Workshops to raise student employability quotient
  • Study Abroad Programs to develop a global exposure
  • On-campus Incubators to home entrepreneurial skills
  • Multi-dimensional exposure to diverse disruptive technologies

As a sustainable and value-driven Group, Amity is following the path of transforming the education landscape.
