NES Ratnam College of Arts, Science & Commerce was established in 1983 and has since then progressively evolved to make a mark for itself as one of the premier institutes of higher learning in Mumbai. Its singularity lies in its unapologetic insistence on discipline as top priority; the key to academic excellence and character building that informs the tone and tenor of all areas of campus life.
Ratnam College occupies place of pride among the 62 institutions of the National Education Society & Saraswathi Vidya Bhavan Group founded by Dr R. Varadarajan. The College is the result of the farsightedness of the Founder President who worked tirelessly to realize his mission of making higher education accessible even to the poor and under-privileged sections/strata of society. Today the college caters to students drawn from all sections of society and has accordingly grown in faculty and infrastructural amenities.
The College is permanently affiliated to the University of Mumbai and is included in the 2(f) , 12 (B) sections of UGC Act, 1956 & also thrice accredited with A Grade by NAAC. It now offers a range of Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes in Arts, Science, Commerce, Management and also several short term add on courses in response to the diverse requirements of students with widely varying potentialities and needs in a technology driven world.
A number of awards and recognitions conferred on us over the years testify to our earnest endeavour to continually reassess our quality standards and evolve further as an institution in response to the changing demands of higher education.
