The BML Munjal University aims to be a leading university for the quality and impact of its teaching, research and linkages with major stakeholders. The focus of the university is to find creative solutions to problems through application of knowledge. The university aims to create a talented community of students and faculty to excel in teaching, learning and research, in a creative and stimulating environment. BMU founding charter clearly expresses the commitment not only to be recognized as an institution of excellence in teaching but in research as well.
Professors are selected as much for their ability to inspire students in the classroom as for the rigor and relevance of their research. Students pursuing programmes in engineering, management and commerce are encouraged to engage in collaborative research programmes with the industry.

The university is in the process of establishing a viable research infrastructure; and building a community of researchers by partnering with well-known academic institutions, NGOs, corporate organizations, scientists and practising professionals. These resources would be used for the BTech, BBA, MBA and BCom (Hons) programmes.
An important step in this direction has been made by establishing the Institute of Inclusive Innovation (I3), in partnership with Imperial College London. Located on the BMU campus, I3 aspires to transform society by pursuing research-led, innovative and practical solutions for high impact inclusive growth and development at the grass roots level. Students and faculty will get an opportunity to work on live projects in the institute areas of focus such as health, energy, water, education, urban development and economic empowerment.
BMU is also establishing industry-promoted Centres of Excellence, which will strengthen the research infrastructure on the campus and, be the driving force for conducting joint research activities.
Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I2E)
The focus of BMU on propagating Innovation and Entrepreneurship among students and others was considered a distinct feature. The selection of ACIC encourages us to take our efforts to promote entrepreneurship to higher levels.
The Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I2E) at BMU is prime driving the Innovation and Entrepreneurship agenda at the university through the following.
1. Propel – The incubator hub at the campus with contemporary facilities required for supporting the startup ventures.
Propel - BMU Incubator: Propel offers incubation to Full-time/Part-time BMU students (current/alumni) intending to nurture their business ideas. While in incubation, these students not only get to avail the various facilities of the incubator but also interact and learn from the experiences of other entrepreneurs. They get to meet their mentors during various mentoring sessions and learn the nitty-gritties of how to incorporate a company, validate a business model, formulate a go-to-market strategy, build a core team, and many more.
2. Institute of Inclusive Innovation (I3) has been established in collaboration with Imperial College London for facilitating cross border innovation, research and training.
I3 –Institute of Inclusive Innovation: Aims to establish & sustain an international platform by:
- Facilitating innovation across borders
- Knowledge creation and research opportunities
- Cross-border collaborative teaching
- Research and training programmes
3. Institution Innovation Council (IIC) established with the collaboration with MHRD Innovation Cell at AICTE. The council provides the operational leadership for innovation and entrepreneurship activities being conducted among the students and faculty of BMU.
4. Teaching and research in the areas of Innovation and Entrepreneurship covering degree and certificate programs. A Professorial Chair in Innovation and Entrepreneurship has been formed with the endowment from HE Mr George Goh, CEO- Border Mission, Singapore.
