The waves of globalisation of knowledge, its expansion and dissemination have brought a radical shift in the concept of university. A further shift is registered in dismantling the age-old notion that the state alone is to shoulder the burden of tertiary education and accommodating the private universities to share this national duty, of course, without making any compromise in academic excellence and other matrices of university education. Metropolitan University joins this historic shift to bring quality university education at affordable cost to the doorsteps of the students.
With the approval of the Ministry of Education under the Private University Act of 1992 (which was amended in 1998) the Metropolitan University came into being on 3rd May 2003.
