Vedatya Institute is an initiative of IIT & the Wharton School alums who wish to replicate their own quality educational experience for the benefit of students in India. It was established with the active support of corporations such as – The Carlson Group – USA and the Edwardian Group, UK.
The name Vedatya reflects institute’s core values of research driven faculty, world class curriculum, international placements and student orientation. “Ved” in Hindi means knowlege and “Aditya” means Sun. Vedatya therefore is a coined term that means “source of knowledge”.
