From a humble beginning in 1976,when the School of Communication and Management Studies was set up to conduct a correspondence course in Mass Communication and Journalism, it has today developed into a major brand in education under the brand name SCMS Group. The uncanny ability of the Group to anticipate changes in the economy and identify opportunities for growth enabled its foray into management education on the cusp of liberalization of Indian economy in the 1990’s and opening up of the engineering education for private self-financing sector in Kerala in 2001.
The Group has since diversified in to Technology and Biotechnology, Computer Applications, Architecture, Polytechnics, Commerce and Economics and has about a dozen Institutions established at different campuses.
The flagship programmes of the Group viz Management and Engineering have won accolades and recognitions consistently over the years. The SCMS-COCHIN School of Business offering the PGDM and the SCMS School of Management and Technology (SSTM) offering the MBA are ranked in various All India surveys among the top 50 programmes including the prestigious MHRD Ranking. The PGDM programme is accredited by NBA and ACBSP, USA and is ranked as No. 1 B.School in Kerala. The SSTM is accredited by NAAC with ‘A’ grade. Academic tie ups with leading Global Universities for faculty and student exchanges, curriculum development and pedagogy and collaborative research are in place.
