U21Global began its journey in 2001 as the avant-garde of online graduate schools offering globally recognised graduate programs. Thriving on academic partnerships with 20 prestigious internationally renowned universities, U21Global was driven by pedagogic innovations and offered a holistic perspective to its students.


Built on a mission to carve a distinctive path in management education it was re-established as Manipal GlobalNxt University, achieving university status in 2012. Centred upon a ground-breaking learning model Manipal GlobalNxt University represents an incredible decade of achievement for the founding universities and has efficaciously taken U21Global’s original vision of global, borderless education to the next level.


Through outstanding faculty, thoughtful leadership, a cutting-edge online learning model, and a diverse learning experience, Manipal GlobalNxt University has efficiently maintained the same standard of high-quality programs found at traditional world-class brick-and-mortar universities. It has at the same time raised the benchmark for online education with an emphasis on advanced learning technology, interactive apprenticeship, and high calibre, PhD-qualified global faculty.


Inspired by GlobalNxt’s relentless efforts that have driven a revolution in the field of management education, the Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia, invited the establishment of a full-fledged world-class and technology-enabled university. Manipal GlobalNxt University has now adopted Malaysia as a hub for its global academic operations.


Today, more than 12,000 students across 72 countries have enrolled in our high-quality and academically-rigorous online programmes, growing on an unprecedented growth trajectory.
