About Global Week

Global Week was initiated by Chitkara University in 2013. An endeavor that began in the spring of 2013 with approximately six professors of various nationalities delivering lectures to engineering students has since expanded to the following astounding magnitudes. Enhancing student mobility across campuses, and expanding faculty exchange opportunities. A significant amount of attention is currently being given to Collaborative Research, with Global Week serving as a springboard. Global Week is an exemplary manifestation of Chitkara University’s dedication to cultivating an intellectually invigorating atmosphere. This occasion not only fosters a sense of academic distinction but also cultivates in its participants an inclination towards inquisitiveness, originality, and cooperation. The university is devoted to fostering an environment where ideas thrive and diverse perspectives converge. The occasion holds the potential to be an indelible encounter that not only enhances understanding but also motivates students to make significant contributions to their specific disciplines.

Chitkara University is a government-recognized university with the right to confer degrees as per the Sections 2 (f) and 22(1) of the UGC Act, 1956. The genesis of Chitkara University is deeply rooted in the academic credentials of its founders who have always placed student’s interest and success as the major mission of the institution.

Chitkara University has established itself as a front-runner in the field of international education through strategic collaborations with eminent institutions across the globe. In addition to collaborations concerning academic articulations, student exchanges, study abroad, and so forth. Considerable effort and time are devoted to ensuring that these relationships remain significant and persistent. The substantial faculty and student mobility resulting from this consistent endeavor has enhanced the academic experience of all parties involved. Every partnership is treated with equal attention and respect in order to generate concrete advantages for all participating institutions. Global Week has proven to be a highly beneficial undertaking for all individuals who have participated. Over the past seven years, Global Week has experienced consistent growth, both in terms of the faculty and student’s benefits and the number of international participants.

Our students are directly exposed to the globalization of education, while our international partners gain insight into our evolving academic excellence, interact with our faculty and students, and, most significantly, foster a sense of community among nations. The knowledge gained and connections made during Global Week paved the way for the formation of stronger ties and additional alliances. The visiting faculty members teach credit-bearing courses while we endeavor to immerse them in the social and cultural nuances of India. Our students acquire an international perspective on the evolution of academic pedagogues through their participation in Global Week. This enables them to chart their academic careers across various regions of the world and at the academic institutions to which they are introduced during the week.
