• Abstract

    This study analyses respondents' demographics and analyses public and private universities in India's financial management, sustainability, and problems. 200 universities were surveyed to determine their gender, age, education, and experience. To assess financial management practises and identify critical aspects affecting financial sustainability, 100 public and 100 private universities were surveyed. The research contrasts public and private university financial management. Private universities emphasise financial transparency and efficiency, although both types recognise the significance of varied revenue streams, enrolment, and student retention for financial sustainability. Financial technology, public university funding, and private university funding management are all issues. The hypothesis testing shows that financial management practises affect university financial sustainability, suggesting that good financial management is essential for long-term survival.  Policymakers, university administrators, can learn from this research. Stakeholders may optimise operations and achieve long-term success by understanding worker demographics and financial trends. The study enhances financial management knowledge and provides advice for economic resilience.
