Jnan Vikas Mandal (JVM) Trust was established in the year 1974 by a group of enterprising visionaries. JVM Trust was started with a deep rooted desire and a strong commitment to provide value based education which would also enhance the employability of the students. The Mandal is committed to cater to the academic needs of locals who are middle and lower middle income group with majority being first generation learners. The Mandal has successfully started and developed two educational institutes:

  • 1. New English School and Junior College at Kalwa with more than 6000 students.

JVM Trust started the Degree College in the year 2001 and is the first college in Airoli, Navi Mumbai. It is re-accredited with ‘A’ grade by NAAC (CGPA 3.33).

Our college has also associated with Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU) for B.C.A. and M.C.A. courses. College has a state-of- the-art Auditorium, a seminar hall with all the modern sophisticated audio-visual facilities and well equipped laboratories for Science and Information Technology.

Our college has collaborated with various reputed institutes and companies like Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), CASI Global to offer certificate courses to the students in order to enhance their employability skills.
