Dr Ramdas Madhav Pai,
Chairperson-Emeritus of Manipal University Jaipur
Dr Ramdas Madhav Pai, Chairperson-Emeritus of Manipal University Jaipur, has a powerful vision for the future: 20 years hence, in a world of shrinking distances and countries with open borders, Manipal will be recognised as one of the largest global varsities in India.
Recipient of the Padma Bhushan in April 2011, ‘Datuk’ Award in December 2011 by the Government of Melaka, Malaysia and the Golden Peacock Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, as well as several other awards, Dr Ramdas M Pai has always set a high bar for the institution he has set up.
For the last 60 years, Manipal has been offering quality education to aspiring students. The group has established itself as a quality education provider worldwide and brings the same to Manipal University Jaipur, a multi-disciplinary university, offering courses in a variety of disciplines.
“I am sure the new batch of students will be empowered to achieve their life's dreams through the knowledge gained at Manipal University Jaipur,” says Mr Pai.
With professional education taking rapid strides, he expects Manipal University Jaipur to take up these challenges, providing all the required facilities to its students.
Dr Ramdas M Pai is an alumnus of KMC, Manipal and a postgraduate in Hospital Administration from Albert Einstein Medical Centre, Philadelphia, USA. In 1961, Dr Ramdas M Pai began his career as a hospital administrator at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal, and built upon his father’s foundation.
He believes that a healthy and educated society is necessary to develop an enlightened civilisation. Dr TMA Pai had the very same conviction when he laid out his vision for the elimination of poverty, illiteracy and sickness among the masses. In line with his philosophy, Manipal institutions have always taken responsibility of the community at large – to ensure public health, education and a general sense of well-being.
