Extending the spirit of Vijaybhoomi of creating a liberal mindset and to foster confidence in expressing oneself freely, comes this competition to get the youth across an international forum to ponder, to seek, discuss and debate issues of international interest with robust civility, regardless of frontiers. FOR NOT FOR will be an annual event and 2020 will be the first ever International online high school debate hosted by a university in India. The competition will bring together schools of international repute, judges with expertise in oration, budding students and organizers who are committed to building holistic, socially responsible, and a professional youth community. The Competition has been designed on an international framework and an advisory panel of debating experts who have whetted the same.
Vijaybhoomi University is India's first liberal professional university, which offers relevant and quality education in business, law, science, design and liberal arts. The university is based in Karjat, Greater Mumbai and is devoted to nurturing holistic, socially responsible, and continuously employable professionals who make a positive difference in the world. We focus on developing the overall personality of our students to transcend challenges and fit in to any given role in both their professional and personal lives. Industry 4.0 needs a liberal professional university to create professionals with the required appropriate skill sets. These professionals are expected to have specialised skills, in depth knowledge, innovation, design thinking abilities, entrepreneurial spirit, be socially responsible and have a positive attitude which is today famously referred to as ‘T’ shaped professionals ready for the volatility of Industry 4.0. Vijaybhoomi is the first in the country to successfully blend a liberal framework into professional streams thereby making it the only one of its kind “Liberal Professional University”.
