The education and training programs are changing rapidly internationally. In recent past, most of the reputed and emerging universities in the world moving not only to offer the degrees with knowledge but also ‘skills’. Hence today universities are moving to bundle knowledge and training. Previously bachelors degrees and masters degrees were treated as a capsule of in depth knowledge and training programs as a separate one for skilled manpower. But the trend for the inclusion of skill in the traditional bachelors and masters programs become important day by day. India is moving towards a developing nation powered by emerging economies, technological societies, and digital economy. Thus universities and HEIs are increasing rapidly and importantly higher degrees especially doctoral degrees leading to PhDs also been offered higher and started in different types of universities. Private universities are offering a good number of PhDs in the nation and the quality of some of the universities no doubt comparable to the funded universities and even few have increased their standards more than that. The field of Information Sciences i.e. Computing related domains have different nature than others as it is available in different nomenclatures. The present study is analytical one with agenda of exploring Doctoral programs in the entire field of IT and Computing in private universities. The study shows the growing trend, state wise distribution, and future potentialities.
