Ahmedabad: City of Specialised Institutions

The state of Gujarat has been typically considered to be lagging in terms of education. However, Ahmedabad and its periphery has some of the most renowned institutes in some specialised fields(Unfortunately, there is no one university encompassing them. In fact I was wondering if we could have a top-100 university, worldwide, if all these institutes could be brought under an autonomous university structure) . Here is a non-comprehensive list of some of them:-
  1. IIM Ahmedabad(General Management)
  2. MICA Ahmedabad(Communication and advertising Management)
  3. DA-IICT(Information and Communication Technology)
  4. NIE(Entrepreneurship)
  5. NIFT(Fashion Technology)
  6. NID(Design)
  7. NICM(Cooperative management)
  8. NIF(Innovation)
  9. CEPT(Environmental Planning)
  10. CEE(Environment Education)
  11. IRMA(Rural Management)
I wonder if any other place in India has that number of high quality institutes of national level in that many diverse fields.

MICA is a PGDM in Communications Management.

Communications management caters to Media, Branding, Marketing, Marketing Research and Advertising. MICA is NOT about advertising only. In fact Media is BIG, really BIG in MICA. Advertising is just the traditional forte
