Vedatya Institute is an initiative of IIT & the Wharton School alums who wish to replicate their own quality educational experience for the benefit of students in India. It was established in the year 2000 with the active support of corporations such as - The Carlson Group - USA and the Edwardian Group, UK.

The name Vedatya, which means "Source of Knowledge", is derived from two separate Hindi words - "Ved" which means "Knowledge" and "Aditya" which means "Sun". It reflects our core mission of providing students with quality education through a team of research driven faculty and world class curriculum.

The institute offers internationally recognized undergraduate and postgraduate programs of study in the professional areas of hospitality management, business management, healthcare and other fields of study. Its campus, located in Gurgaon - Sohna Road, is fully integrated with academic, recreational and residential facilities for students.

Vedatya has an academic partnership with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) in the hospitality industry, in the form of an IHG Academy, and with Columbia Asia Hospitals in the healthcare industry. We are also the first institute in India to have an agreement with IHG to build an internationally branded on-campus training hotel, Holiday Inn.

Vedatya is owned and operated by the Umak Group, the holding entity of Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi, Radisson Blu Varanasi and a restaurant chain called The Great Kabab Factory.
