Our Leadership


Mr. P.K. Gupta believes that the true rewards of entrepreneurship are not the kind that can be counted or weighed. As per him, “It was not just an intention to be successful or the idea of huge profits that motivated me to foray into the higher education sector. In fact, I was genuinely concerned as I saw the drive in the youth around me.”

Time decides everything...Our fate...Our journey...Our life...And when time changes, everything changes...sometimes for worse... sometimes for good... sometimes for best. If a good thing is meant to happen, it will, at the right time for the obvious right reasons. “I never believed that until it happened to me.”
