Private universities have acknowledged importance in improving the quality of higher education due to their autonomy, motive and capacity to introduce innovations. Since they are self-financing entities, introducing innovations is vital to their sustainability. Srinivas University, as a private self-financing university, established in the year 2015 aims to become the most innovative higher education institution in India to bridge the gap between conventional education and next generation education through initiating radical reforms and thereby fulfill the goal of its founder to become most innovative higher education University.
