Mahindra University, notified by the Government of Telangana vide Telangana Ordinance No. 1 of 2020 dated 20th May 2020, announces the launch of its Ph.D. Program effective from the Fall 2020 Semester.

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is acknowledged to be the highest university degree that is conferred on a doctoral student who successfully defends her/his Ph.D. thesis in front of a panel of experts in the field appointed by the University after a stipulated time and publications in reputed international journals and conferences.
