Brief Description of Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce, Pune
The Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce is a pioneering, premier Commerce College in Maharashtra. Situated at the foot of the rugged Fergusson College Hill and dotted with lush green trees and shrubs all around, it has a most picturesque and inviting atmosphere.
The College was established in 1943 by the Deccan Education Society with a view to providing enlightened leadership and trained manpower in the field of commerce and business to the country which was on the threshold of independence. Prof. D. G. Karve, a renowned economist and some time Deputy Governor, the Reserve Bank of India was the First Principal of the College. He was followed by a line of very able and dedicated principals : Prin. S. V. Kogekar, Prin. Dr. T. M. Joshi, Prin. N. A. Mavlankar, Prin. Dr. N. K. Kulkarni and Prin. Dr. C. G. Vaidya, who led the College from strength to strength in every direction. Late Shri. C. G. Agashe, the Managing Agent of the Brihan Maharashtra Sugar Syndicate Limited, was instrumental in getting a munificent donation of Rs. 2,00,000/- for the College from the Syndicate. Hence the College was named as the Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce.
