It gives me immense pleasure to be associated as the president of Maratha Mandir, a philanthropic institution that strives to spread quality education in the society and works for the masses without any reservations.

Maratha Mandir was founded in 1945 by Babasaheb Gawde who was a real visionary. He felt strongly for the need to nurture talent in society. Today this organization stands tall as a multi-activity institution is a testimony for producing some of the finest talents – as entrepreneurs, artists, and mavericks in the society. Maratha Mandir provides hopes and aspirations to thousands of students for a better tomorrow.

We at Maratha Mandir believe in producing leaders. The members of our various committees and governing bodies come on the board out of a sense of responsibility towards the society and passion to achieve our aims and objectives. Our educational institutions are open to all those who have a burning desire to make brilliant careers.

We at Maratha Mandir recognize that today the business organizations exist in a highly composite environment; the term VUCA describes it appropriately because the markets are Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous. Organizations prefer to hire qualified management professionals who are capable of overcoming the various challenges of keeping ventures on a path of growth. We at Maratha Mandir have recognized this actuality, and provide a conducive learning environment through practical and adaptable pedagogy and skill development to bridge the industry-institute gap. MMS program emphasizes on leadership, creativity and innovation. The rise of a global knowledge economy has intensified the need for strategic partnerships. Our linkage with the industry encourages and enables our staff and students to undertake research relevant to the industry. This prepares world-class manpower in the field of management by inculcating the various skills required by the industry, thereby contributing to the economic and social development at large.

The basic emphasis of the MMS program is addressing the need of leadership in the industry and society. I am sure students will benefit by enrolling in Maratha Mandir’s Babasaheb Gawde Institute of Management Studies.
