In his address, Political thinker and analyst, Dr Sahasrabuddhe said that private universities had a major role to play in the process of transformation of higher education in the country. Private Universities are not tied to the strict government policies and norms and therefore are free to improve the quality of higher education being imparted by them through extensive efforts. Private Universities like Mangalayatan University need to focus on academic programmes that have their primary emphasis upon experimentation and research. This will help students imbibe the necessary skills and help them enhance their employability quotient.
