Message from the Academic President

 

As you may be aware, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), Manipal was the first private Deemed to be University in India. In the year 2006, MAHE was renamed as Manipal University. 

 

Recently the Uiversity Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi, directed all Deemed to be Universities to restrain from using the word "University". Consequently, in compliance with the UGC, Manipal University, Manipal has reverted to it's original name - "Manipal Academy of Higher Education" with immediate effect. 

 

As such the Dubai Campus of MAHE, Manipal also reverts to its original name "Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Dubai Campus".

 

Please rest assured that other than name rest everything else remains the same - value/recognition of the degree, the rankings/accreditations/affiliations, all remain the same. 

 

Should you have any query, please feel free to contact us. 

 

Dr S V Kota Reddy 

Academic President
