Crawford University Postgraduate School – Our Approach

Our PG School is research-oriented and every research work is problem-driven. We impart students with critical research skills that enable them identify the core problems of the economy, businesses and governance; and to provide cutting-edge solutions to such problems through original and novel research work. This, we believe, is the key required for entrepreneurship and wealth creation.  There is no better way to become happy, comfortable and fulfilled in life than being a solution to the problems of other men, groups and institutions. At Crawford PG School, we teach our students technical, theoretical and practical skills designed to turn them into solution providers to national, local  and global challenges.

We give high premium to creativity and originality in our research work. Students are guided to embark on scientific inquiries that lead to original contributions to knowledge and not involve objectionable duplications. Originality is the basic credit point of our research enterprise. Our actual investigations are directed towards obtaining novel results. Students are encouraged to develop new ideas and obtain deep insight into the problem being investigated in order to get novel and new results which is the hallmark of good research work worldwide.  As pointed out by the physics Nobel laureate Ernst Lawrence in scientific workcreative thinking demands seeing things not seen previously, or in ways not previously imagined; and this necessitates jumping off from normal positions, and taking risks by departing from reality. No joy in academics surpasses the joy of new scientific discovery and the fame that comes with it.  We inspire our students to break new grounds and make impactful discoveries.

  1. PGD in Economics
