According to the report submitted by Shiv Nadar University- In the year 2005, there were about 20 such institutes which offered Liberal Arts Programme. Which are now almost more than 100 in number.
The report says that, since the year 2008, India has seen a 40% increase in students choosing to enroll in Private Universities instead of Public Schools, which require students to choose a discipline for a admissions, which are difficult to get into it easily.
When compared to Private and Non-Private Institutes, Private universities which are often started by entrepreneurs and investors are generally for profit businesses, unlike the Government schools, which are highly subsidized. Private University owners say that for Profit models gives them the ability to provide students with experienced and well-paid professors.
One of the newest of these private schools is the Shiv Nadar University in Noida. The university, when it opened its doors last year, offered programs in engineering, math and natural sciences to its first batch of 274 students. This year, it began its School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the student population has risen to 574. As at liberal arts schools in the United States, students at Shiv Nadar University are required to take a core curriculum of varied subjects, regardless of their major.
However, the seek of students for different kind of programmes are increasing accordingly. In other words it can be easily described as 'when the consumption increases the production also increases automatically', which is applicable for the above mentioned programme.
