  • About Us - Management

 Founded by Kulapati Dr. K. M. Munshiji, on November 7, 1938, nearly a decade before the advent of independence, with the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi and the co-operation and support of several distinguished stalwarts of India’s freedom movement, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has grown from small beginnings to a comprehensive global intellectual, cultural and educational movement. It is a totally secular and apolitical organisation. The main purpose of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is to provide a modern bridge to span the past, the present and the future, built on the strong foundation of the fundamental values of life.

The Bhavan believes that there are good elements in all cultures that transcend all barriers and knit people together. Its ideal is “Vasudhaiva Kudumbakam”: “The World is one Family”. Its motto is “Aano Bhadraah Kratavo Yantu Vishvatah”: ‘Let noble thoughts come to us from every side’. The Bhavan also firmly believes that revitalizing ancient values and reintegrating them to suit the changing needs of modern times alone will give people the strength to assimilate whatever is good in the new, without being swept away from their traditional moorings.

Bhavan’s institutes of higher learning

With 118 Kendras/Offices spread over all the parts of India and 7 centers abroad in UK, USA, Portugal and Mexico, Bhavan has acquired a true ‘International Indian character and culture’ and sponsors more than 373 institutions all over the world. Bhavan’s concern for evolving new culture by proper synthesis with fundamental human values and growth oriented Indian culture finds expression in the establishment of institutions devoted to science, technology and management.

Outstanding institutions under Bhavan’s banner in this context are:

  • Bhavan’s SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai.
  • Sardar Patel College of Engineering, Mumbai.
  • Sardar Patel College of Communication and Management, Delhi.
  • Rajendra Prasad College of Communication and Management, Mumbai.
