Another successful Convocation of online graduates of Manipal University Jaipur! 


It was a hot summer morning in Jaipur on 25th May 2024, when the online graduates of Manipal University Jaipur, who travelled from different corners of the country gathered in the sprawling MUJ campus to attend their Convocation ceremony. In the life of an online learner, Convocation marks a significant milestone. After days of pure dedication and staying motivated in a virtual classroom, an online learner sets foot to experience the real world. A Convocation in the college campus makes it even more special. 

This was the second successful in-person Convocation held by Manipal University Jaipur for its online graduates. A total of 1,308 students of MBA (Master of Business Administration), MCA (Master of Computer Applications), MCom (Master of Commerce), and MA JMC (Master of Journalism and Mass Communication) marked this milestone in their academic journey. The rest of the achievers, who couldn’t make it in person, will receive their well-deserved certificates both digitally and in hard copy.     

Inspired by the success of the first Convocation, online learners, dressed in their best attires, brimming with excitement reached the campus on the morning of May 25th, Saturday. They took their time to look around the picturesque campus, met up with their friends, interacted with faculty and waited with excitement to receive their certificates.

The convocation kicked off with a procession by the dignitaries- Dr G K Prabhu, President, Manipal University Jaipur, Cmde (Dr) Jawahar M Jangir, Pro President, MUJ, Dr Mallikarjuna Gadapa, Director, Center for Distance and Online Education, MUJ, and Mr Ambrish Sinha, CEO, UNext Learning.
