Gurukul College of Commerce was established in July 2001 under the management of Mumbai Pradesh Arya Vidya Sabha (MPAVS), a Gujarati Linguistic Minority institution, which is rooted in the ethos of rich Indian culture and tradition. The MPAVS has been in the service of education for nearly 100 years with focus on value based quality education to the people of India especially those who need the most. The MPAVS management is currently running 16 educational institutions under the banner of Gurukul Educational Institutions right from primary to undergraduate courses, which also includes industrial training institute and school for special children.
Starting a Degree college was natural growth of desire to fulfill the needs of students for higher education at Ghatkopar in Mumbai (Maharashtra), the commercial capital of India.
The College is well equipped with all the modern infrastructure facilities such as Library, Computer Lab, Gymkhana, AC Auditorium and Conference Room. The college library is large enough to accommodate 125 students at a time and has large collection of books and magazines on different subjects that help students to broaden the horizon of their learning.
The academic expertise and sincere efforts of the Professors are reflected in the results of the college. The college has 100% results in the TYBCAF - Semester V, 95% in Semester - VI and 61.42% in TYBCom exams conducted by the University of Mumbai during the academic year 2007-2008.
The mission of the college is to carry forward the rich tradition of higher learning in India. The college aims to contribute effectively towards India as developed nation by 2020, which is possible only by assimilating new technology in the most befitting manner to suit Indian conditions. The Gurukul College of Commerce aims to achieve that target by providing value based higher education and learning and develop their aptitude and professional skills befitting present conditions and future prospects.
The college strictly follows the admission procedure and the fee structure as set by the University of Mumbai for all the three courses offered in the college.
