The college has started specialised Post Graduation Course – MMS (Master in Management Studies) in the name of Rohidas Patil Institute of Management Studies. The trust has also established Pravin Patil College of Diploma Engineering & Technology to cater the need of technical education in Mira-Bhayander area.
Although the Trust has established educational institutions to cater for the needs of the society, the members of the trust felt that they should also setup a new institute to help students to choose right careers and prepare for appearing at the various competitive examinations held in the country by UPSC, MPSC, Railways, Banks and such other bodies. They realised that no such institute existed between Bandra and Dahanu in the Western suburbs and our institution could fill this gap. A decision was therefore taken by the trustees to establish Pramila Institute of Administrative Careers with competent faculty, office staff and infrastructure from 2010 – 11.
Quality and excellence is the aim of the institution. The college makes sincere efforts towards empowerment of students by providing innovative teaching and learning facility.
The comprehensive and value based education has been the benchmark achieved by the entire stakeholders of the institution. Within a short span of 18 years, the college has achieved prominent position in the coastal region by maintaining high teaching standards and by achieving outstanding results in academics, cultural and sports field both at the State and National level.
