The K. R. Mangalam story goes back to the chain of schools that offered an alternative option of world-class education, pitching itself against the established elite schools, which had enjoyed a position of monopoly till then. Having blazed a new trail in school education the focus of the group was trained on higher education. With the mushrooming growth of Management Schools in the National Capital Region, it was considered very important for the students to take informed decisions and pursue career objectives in a place where the concept of education has evolved as a natural process. The Institute has made rapid strides in many spheres of activity within a short span since inception. Academically speaking, the Institute has evolved into a fully functional corporate academy and has been continuously upgrading its resources with the intent of optimizing opportunities for the students who are groomed in a truly inter-disciplinary environment wherein the management students develop integrative skills by interacting students from other disciplines like, engineering, psychology, journalism and media studies.
