The Mahatma Education Society is the materialization of national aspirations. Our institution has altered past definitions of education as a provided service, to education as a fundamental right and a tool of progress. Through encouraging our students’ personal proactive development, MES enables future generations to create an affirming social and economic impact in the modern world.

Our Founder, Chairman and CEO, Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai and Secretary Dr. Daphne Pillai, began the Mahatma Education Society – Pillai Group of Institutions from the seed of a single school. MES has now flourished into an abundance of superior quality institutions delivering pioneering research and education services to students of all levels.

MES today consists of over 48 institutions.
