Passion and perseverance to learn and to inculcate the right learning atmosphere amongst the learners keeps me enthusiastic and energetic to live a meaningful life of an Academician.
Motivation is the driving force to perform better academically
I feel that Motivation to do more should be the driving force; to do better, and encouragement of new thoughtful actions is the way to lead academically. I believe that each action of a leader is observed and analyzed. A leadership role is thus of responsibility and performance.
Our strategy is to instill the confidence in the students about the quality academics to build their chosen careers
Pre-planning and enthusiastic execution in a cooperative manner with shared achievement are key to successful administration. Our marketing strategy is to educate the public and instill in the student the confidence of good quality academics that shall build their chosen careers.
Our college imparts value added education of global standards to help students work from competitive excellence
I joined the college in 1995 when a batch of 43 students was studying in second year of B.Sc. I had just completed my Ph.D. in Biotechnology and had started my dream career as a Professor: A Nation Builder. The college has since grown to 23 courses offering degrees like PG in MBA, MCA, M.Com., M.Sc. in Biotechnology, Microbiology, Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry, along with UG in BA, B.Com., B.Sc., BCA and BBA in various combination of Professional subjects. The college strength is over 2000 students. Our College vision is “Impart value added education of global standards to help the students work for competitive excellence and financial freedom”.

Our Management holds the credit of Progressive Vision towards all its stakeholders, the students’, staff, parents and the society. This is the reason behind the Success of MRSC.

Our Alumni who are well placed and successful in almost every walk of life from Entrepreneurs to Management tycoons, from Administrators to bankers, from National sports achievers to Artists in Bollywood and Scientists to Social Workers. Their attachment towards our college is our greatest achievement. Our teachers have been growing with this Institute for over 15 or more years and such staff is more than 70%, which gives diversity to our college.
We have incorporated learning activities with fun and participation
The biggest challenge I feel is the general attitude towards education in schools. Learning should be fun and not stress. Passing and percentage is a criteria rather than the love for learning. At MRSC we have incorporated learning activities with fun and participation is the criteria. This has been the reason we could make the years of Education at MRSC meaningful for the Students. This has been the reason for the enhanced Academic achievements of our students who have bagged several positions in top 10 in University merits over the past 25 years.

Our teaching environment is interactive with students’ using the resources provided and widening their thoughts
Teaching-Learning is a continuous process and at MRSC. We live this fact by promoting our teachers to do active research and attend International and National Conferences. This has increased our teaching quality. Our teaching environment is interactive with students’ using the resources provided and widening their thoughts by questioning. Activities round the year help the student to express himself/herself and learn to collaborate and compete developing a healthy relation with peers.
Every student should make their own decision based on sound facts and logic
You are a result of your choices that you made or you did not make. So every student should make his own decision based on sound facts and logic. Do what is important to you and be responsible. Enjoy life with caution and care. When you choose an academic Institution for Higher Education look for Infrastructure, Laboratories, Libraries and most importantly the right faculties – Teachers.
