Marwadi University (MU) is a leading private university located in Rajkot, Gujarat, India. Established on 9th May 2016 by the Marwadi Education Foundation through The Gujarat Private Universities (Amendment) Act, 2016, Marwadi University has quickly gained recognition for its commitment to providing quality education.
