Chairman's Message

Welcome you all to Rohidas Patil Institute of Management Studies. The institute is the latest addition to Shankar Narayan Educational Trust that was established in the year 1993, under the dynamic, visionary, leadership of Shri Rohidasji Patil alias Kakaji who is a philanthropist, industrialist and founder chairman of the Trust.

The Trust has always stood for quality and excellence in the society. The Trust runs a degree college, a junior college, polytechnic, professional self-finance courses and other post graduate courses with affiliation to University of Mumbai and Maharashtra State Board of Technical Examinations, thereby imparting education to around 4500 students from rural areas near Mira and Bhayandar.

The institute is affiliated to University of Mumbai for the MMS Program and is approved by statutory authorities like AICTE, DTE and Government of Maharashtra. The institute has an excellent supporting infrastructure in the form of a separate spacious seven storied building, a well equipped library with over 3800 volumes and international management journals, and a well equipped computer centre, a gymkhana, air-conditioned classrooms, a conference hall, a seminar hall, a placement cell, subject departments, a well equipped auditorium and a hygienic cafeteria. The institute is entering into its second year of establishment from the current academic year 2009-2010.

Rapidly changing international economic environment marked by the process of globalization has activated a greater need for management education for survival and excellence in today’s open society as globalization has created a borderless regime of free trade and transactions based on competition generated through a series of economic reforms towards liberalization. Beginning 1980s, most countries of the world have taken to market mediated economic reforms and liberalization. In India, efforts towards reforms and strong liberalization started only in July 1991 and today’s Indian society and culture is highly influenced by these economic and social changes worldwide.

We at the institute stand for promoting academic excellence and rigorous discipline with sound practical exposure amongst the student community. Techniques such as conceptual teaching, group discussions, case study approach, research theme preparations, summer internship projects, presentations, management games, educational tours and workshops on the current management trends are used to ensure cognitive development of students. We believe in developing humane managers with sound academic and practical skills, deep-rooted fundamentals and honest approach to life and social situations. We welcome you all to the institute once again. Make yourself competent for the globalized world through tireless striving by staying focused like a rock in an angry ocean for hard work, as miles are to be covered before we all go to sleep.
