N. G. Acharya and D. K. Marathe College of Arts, Science and Commerce was established in 1978 by Chembur Trombay Education Society. It is ideally located in the heart of Chembur on N. G. Acharya Marg between Chembur and Govandi Railway Stations and is served by a number of BEST bus routes. As the first degree college in Chembur, it was started with the aim to cater to the higher education needs of the students from Chembur and the neighboring areas. The college, affiliated to the University of Mumbai is staffed by dedicated, experienced and qualified teachers and offers HSC in Arts/Science/Commerce in Junior college and B, A./B. Sc/B. Com, degree courses. We also conduct professional courses like BMS (Bachelor of Management Studies), B. Sc. (Information Technology), B. Sc. (Computer Science), B. Com. (Accounting and Finance) B. Com. (Banking and Insurance), and post-graduate courses in M. Com. and M. Sc. (Chemistry) as unaided courses. We have started Business Management as a special subject at T.Y.BCom. from 2007 and propose to start B.M.M. from 2008. We also propose to start Botany & Zoology at TY. B.Sc level (Subject to approval from the University and Govt.)
The college has more than 7000 students in Junior, Degree and Self-Finance courses.
Along with studies, the college encourages co-curricular activities. In an on-going programme, our college endeavors to help students in their overall development. The college campus has a well-laid basket ball court, big sports ground and an obstacle ground which has been developed as per the requirements of the N.C.C. unit. We also propose to construct a separate seven storied building for future needs.
