Objective 

The MA in Business Laws programme is O.P Jindal Global University's initiative to address the needs arising from the unique dynamics of the current corporate environment, where business intersects with law, policy and dispute resolution. Today, corporate professionals - ranging from those involved with human resources, innovation strategy, intellectual property management or business compliance - have to synchronise their managerial skills with legal and regulatory strategy to ensure effective compliance and reduce their company's risk profile, while growing their business. The Masters degree programme provides an all-important bridge between the various disciplines and skills required by the modern business professional.

This gives the MA in Business Laws a dynamic curriculum and teaching methodology to address contemporary legal and regulatory issues clearly and comprehensively, so that our executive learners develop real-world legal knowledge and enhance their technical and analytical skills to excel at their corporate and business roles. The postgraduate degree programme in business laws provides corporate officers, mid- to senior level executives and entrepreneurs with contemporary management ideas and practices in conjunction with cutting-edge legal, compliance, and regulatory tools to lead, comply, challenge, and innovate.

Scholarship 

Scholarship Program is one of the most common ways which is run by all universities to give financial assistance to the students who come from a financially weaker section but have great possibilities to thrive through their academics. OPJGU has always tried that such students must not be left behind just because of money constraints.

Every year, Merit cum Means Scholarship applications are invited from students and reviewed by the scholarship committee during a series of frequent meetings. Rules and regulations are drafted/amended every year as required. The criterion taken into consideration are merit (CGPA) and means (family income). So many other factors also play an important role like participation in moot courts, debates, sports, cultural activities, societies’ events etc., contribution to university (CDPD & Admissions) and research. The review is done in such a way that maximum students get benefitted.

Students who qualify under Haryana domicile category may be eligible for full or partial fee concession.
