Department Head

The concept and philosophy of education, with reference to the current breed of students, has changed altogether. Today’s judgmental generation doesn’t come with an empty mind waiting to be filled with the old-fashioned teachers.

With the onset of a new century came the challenges of finding a new horizon in the sphere of education and training. The present system of Indian Education & Training needs to keep pace with the overflowing demand for quality education by doing away with stereo-typed curriculum and unimpressive methodologies. The professional approach has to be at par with the best of the world.

With the bigger objective on course, the role of a teacher has changed from an authoritarian to a friend, a guide, a manager, a facilitator and scientific observer simultaneously.

MMI is established with the objective of imparting high-end quality education to produce world-class teachers with skills and extraordinary capabilities to accomplish the objective entrusted to them. The training grooms the prospective teachers as per the current prevailing standards, which develops and elevates the personality to such an extent that our teachers will have a cutting edge among others.

The programmes offered by MMI, its delivery structure and teaching methodology is governed by the academic council consisting of experienced and internationally renowned academicians. Our course judiciously combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience which provides the exquisite skills that distinguishes the best from the rest.

The institution does not believe in producing just diploma holders but teachers of substance with a comprehensive development of their personality to teach and groom the children of future and building a much better and stronger Brand India.
