Shri M. D. Shah Mahila College, established in 1968 by Jan Seva Samiti is affiliated to S.N.D.T., Women’s University, a prestigious Women’s University founded by Bharat Ratna, Maharishi Dhondu Keshav Karve.

At the college we believe that no woman should be left behind in taking the benefits of higher education. In order to prepare students for global competence, a wide range of options are available. The college offers Bachelor’s degree in Arts, Commerce, Management Studies, Computer Applications, Mass media and Masters’ degree in Commerce, Economics and Hindi. In B.A., the programme options are available in four mediums, while in B.Com, it is available in two mediums. I am particularly proud of our mission to include the marginalized section of students into the ambit of higher education. We are very committed to provide learning opportunities to girls with low academic performance. The unswerving dedication of our management and staff has led to many innovative and add-on programmes being offered to the students free of charge. One of the very effective and exclusive programmes is “Astitva”- a project where academically and socially disadvantaged group of hundred students are provided intensive training on off-days regarding self esteem building, confidence development, communication skills and personality development. These students further reach out to the society by working in the nodal centers set up in the community with the help of NGO’s and locals. The percentage at entry point may not be that impressive but during the course of three years we are able to influence many lives. This year the university topper in the BCA stream belongs to our college. The merit list is occupied by our BMS students.

I am certain that the vision ‘To enlighten and empower women to enhance the quality of society’ will echo in every endeavor that we undertake every sphere that we touch and will make a difference to the society.
