“Providing a platform for youth leadership development, this Fair offered us all a great opportunity to be perfect global citizens. Interaction with a vast galaxy of foreign students has enabled us to learn different language skills, international work-experience and respect for cultural divergence. These are very essential for us to become globally fit as the world salutes those who have a diverse experience.”

“Through Global Exposure only we can produce human resource for the industry that has the capacity to interact and work in a global environment. Under the same vision LPU decided to host this mega event in the campus. In addition, our University also has tie-ups with more than 20 foreign universities of USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore and Brazil to provide the students an opportunity to study and work on global land. Moreover, this image of a global University has also attracted more than 200 students to the campus from different parts of the world including Indonesia, US, UK, Nigeria, Tanzania and other 10 countries.” He further added, “We are very hopeful that such initiatives will help in making LPU as India’s first Global University.”
