About Us

The journey of Pragati began in 2011, with the setting up of a vocational training institute to train students in hotel management skills to find employment. That institute became the most successful skill training institute in the region, which has till date provided employment to more than 4000 of its alumni.

In 2016, we obtained approval of Department of Education, Government of Assam to provide college education. We thereafter entered formal education offering BBA and B.Com under Gauhati University. The underlying philosophy and objective however remained same – how to provide relevant and employable skills to graduates. In formal college context – apart from the University Syllabus we are committed to providing additional skills – that prepares the student to get a job or pursue higher studies.

Our Mission

“The mission of Pragati School of Management is to be the cradle to nurture each of its students as empowered youth who will each play a significant role as leaders of society and thereby contribute towards creating a more humane and peaceful society. We will do so, by deploying cutting edge and pragmatic educational methods and practices, making them affordable and available to the students of the NE region – inspired by our belief in the boundless potentials latent within each individual.”
