About GUC


To advance knowledge and wisdom through futuristic engagement enhanced with design thinking skills


To be a renowned university pioneering in industry-based education

School philosophy

The GUC management believes that the purpose of university education is to upgrade a student’s potential for learning. Students learn best in a work-based setting. Such a setting is way more challenging than a typical classroom where the lecturer is the knowledge provider and students as passive learners. In the ordinary classroom, the student’s only goal is to absorb the knowledge and regurgitate all information acquired on paper during exams or assignments. At GUC, our curriculum has been derived from within and by the industry. Our excellently formulated educational programs will contribute holistically to the student’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. The courses we offer contribute to the development of critical skills and impresses upon the student, new ways of thinking, new disciplines and new tools of learning.

Such students will be able to adapt to the challenges and demands of the external world. Students are exposed at an early stage to the real demands and needs of the industry from where our academics come from. Students will learn a lot more in GUC, a pioneer in industry-based education than at any other university. A good learning environment is one in which the students assume the role of apprentice and the lecturer as supervisor. Within our work-based learning platforms, the apprentice would be able to visualize the industry priorities, the targets, the rules, the decorum, ethics or culture expected and hence the learner work towards achieving their own key performance indices, which we prefer to call rather than learning outcomes. Students have a clear vision of what their personal goals are and take responsibility of their own self-development.
