I follow a hybrid approach philosophy, which is a combination of democratic and transformational style
I think I have a hybrid philosophy, and that is a combination of Democratic & Transformational Philosophy of Leadership. As you know Raffles University has a Vision and the Vision is : “To evolve as an Institution of Excellence”
An Institute where scholars are encouraged to broaden the frontiers of their knowledge with the help of globally acknowledged Academia & Research Centres, where a conducive ambience is provided to them to develop informed and enquiring minds, enabling them to move towards achieving the goal.
When I say Democratic Philosophy of Leadership or you may also call it Participative Leadership, it means asking help and collaboration from the subordinates thereby taking advantage of individual creativity. The other is Transformational Style, where I set Challenging Goals and express higher expectations from each one of them. And inspire them through effective communication & collaboration which eventually leads in achieving the greater result.
I think I have an ability to coach others, to kindle enthusiasm, to effectively communicate and to inspire subordinates. I am a confident, honest and creative person with a positive attitude and believe in saying “We”, instead of ‘I’ and also in use of ‘Let’s go’.
We put in time and efforts to curate each program, and ensure they match up to the industry standards
All the Programs in the University are key programs, because before starting any program, a lot of research is done about it. The University is an Educational Institution and number of educational activities such as Webinars, Lectures, Conferences, Visit of the Schools, Sport & Cultural Events, Literary events such as Debate, Quiz Competitions and Science Olympiads etc. are organized from time to time involving all the schools in the area. Competent teams of qualified Student Counsellors also in place along with the University presence on Digital and Social Media.
It becomes essential to pace up with the changing trends and create an identity
The world around is changing faster than ever before. Does anyone know that every day five times as many smartphones are purchased than there are babies born?
It is common knowledge that every-one is getting affected by such mega global trends. We see how this is affecting the legal profession also as new areas of commerce like online Commerce, Social commerce, Peer to Peer Commerce, Copyright, Trademark, CryptoCurrency (Bitcoin) and the areas of mergers, acquisitions, insolvency & Bankruptcy, Intellectual & Maritime Law & joint ventures as also other sectors are booming.
Our students need to understand that the competition is no longer about who knows more facts, that competition has already been won by Google, the competition today is as to who is more effective.And Law as a profession is about Justice, I wish and recommend that every law graduate has to serve their client to the best and always remain ethical. One ignorance from you on job may cost someone’s life and trouble to their family, may be to the whole society.
Our traditions and morales make us different from other universities
Our University is based on the Gurukula Concept whereby the students move away from the rough & tumble of stressful existence to the quiet environment of the University which is at a detached location in Neemrana. This Ambience enables a strong bond between teacher and pupil, ensuring thereby greater attention to instruction as well as Education free of Distraction and Impediments.
Secondly, True to the Ideology of its Founder, the Raffles is dedicated
- To provide its students with an Excellent Education embedded in Humanistic Traditions and Values,
- To instill in them the Ethical Values, Substantive knowledge and Practical skills they need to become meaningful members of the society.
Emphasis is laid on soft skills which are sought by International Companies and a new generation of employers. The ability to speak & write in crisp English in logical and ordered paragraphs, to work in teams & to grasp aspects of Leadership and Communication skills, is ensured at all levels.
Additionally, we are fortunate to be located in Japanese Industrial Zone in Neemrana which is evolving as a Nodal junction for Business & Commerce in view of the Upcoming Delhi Mumbai Industrial & Freight Corridor.
Our Engineering & Management students are able to gain First Hand Experience regarding the Work of Industries employing the Latest Technologies as also the Enormous Complexities involved in Business & Industry of this Magnitude.
Our students of Law are also at an advantage firstly because of the traditionally Rural & yet Increasingly Urban Profile of Neemrana, phenomenon, which comprises a wide spectrum of legal issues and litigation in the microcosm of Justice delivery System & Lastly, Our Work Culture, makes us different.
We are planning to expand the university in other educational domains
Expansion of the University in terms of opening New Disciplines like Hospitality, Media and Communications, Education, Para-Medical Sciences, Design Technology & Tourism etc.
Accelerating the Association with our Foreign Intellectual Partners and making our University as one of the best Private Universities in India and placing it on the Global Map.
Personally, I do have the ambition and obligation to fulfill the dreams of my late husband who was the Founder of this University as well.
Our students are hired by top recruiters because of the values and skill sets they graduate with
Our Industry Institute Partnership Cell (IIPC) takes care of all Placements and Training needs & the Cell is professionally managed. Our students do have the opportunity to get excellent internships and placements in the Industries around us. The track record of the University suggests that our students are placed in Excellent Industries, Firms and Government Departments.
However, notwithstanding the fact that, Training, Internship and Placement Activities are Inseparable attributes of the University, we believe in bringing out Job Providers instead of Job seekers.
Recently ten of our Law students of final year passed Preliminary Rajasthan Judicial Service Exam.
Internship programs are a crucial and very significant part of legal education
Law program ensures its practical approach by having a method of ‘Clinical Legal education’ system. Herein, organizing various moot court competitions, street plays, association with local authorities, having Legal Aid in campus and making students a part of it where students interact with the general public and assist them with their legal problems. This cell organises the legal camps and students in supervision of their teachers hear the legal issues of the general public and suggest them the possible legal ways to solve the issue. Internship programs are a crucial and very significant part of legal education; where students work under the reputed legal firms or Judicial Officers to learn the practical aspects of the legal field.
