    Modern Education Society

    The Modern Education Society, Pune was established on 15th February, 1932, to meet the demand for education by the residents of the eastern part of the city of Poona. The efforts of its founder, Prin. V. K. Joag, and of the Wadia brothers, Sir Cusrow Wadia and Sir Ness Wadia.

    The Modern Education Society came into being as a regular registered Educational Society formally at a meeting of its founder members at the Cowasjee Dinshaw Library Hall.

    True to Its credo 'For the Spread of Light', the Society pioneered efforts to open the portals of higher education to the residents of eastern parts of Pune and pursued them tirelessly through the last eighty resplendent years. The Society today has seven institutions in the bustling cities of Pune and Mumbai. Over the years, they have become the first choice to acquire an all-round quality education for many promising young men and women all over the country and abroad.

    It was at this meeting that the First Senate of the Modern Education Society was formed and the Senate decided on the recommendations of it’s Finance Council and Academic Council to establish from June 1932, a college affiliated to a University in the Poona Suburban Area. Thus, came into being, the ‘Nowrosjee Wadia College’ named after the Late Mr. Nowrosjee Wadia, father of Sir Cusrow Wadia and Sir Ness Wadia. Today the seven Institutions of the Modern Education Society in Pune and Mumbai are well known all over India and abroad as institutions of excellence in education, sports and in extra-curricular activities and are most sought after as educational Institutions of excellence by students from all over India and several countries abroad.

    It is a unique education society since the Board of Life members, the supreme decision making body of the Society and its Institutions, is made up entirely of teachers of these institutions, the management is intensely aware of the strengths, weaknesses and requirements of the Institution. As a result, the policies of the management are made keeping in mind the interest of the teachers, the non-teaching staff and the students.
