About Rishihood

Welcome to Rishihood University, where we believe in nurturing curious minds and empowering students to achieve their dreams.

“Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. We must have life building, man-making, character-making assimilation of ideas.”

— Swami Vivekananda

What is impact at Rishihood?

We imagine a triple-layer of impact that is interconnected.


Build Leadership Capacity With a curriculum anchored on self leadership, mentorship, experience, and multidisciplinary learning.


Create Thought on Problems and Solutions through bringing the best minds together in a culture of problem – solving, disruption, and impact.


Scale by reinventing institutions, policies and systems by building an ecosystem of partners such as government, non-profits, media, corporates, and academia.

The center of our education is to nurture the next generation of ‘rishileaders’. Such leaders demonstrate three fundamental attributes:


Desire to know

  • The quest to discover knowledge
  • Humility and respect for others
  • A sense of wonder towards the creation


Will to act

  • A mindset to create and take risks without the fear of failure
  • Be fully involved in the action but remain detached from the fruits of the action
  • Pursue excellence in every action and make it an act of worship


Joy of being

  • Personal Integrity regardless of outcomes
  • Purity of body, mind, and environment
  • Internal and external peace and harmony
