From Principal Desk
Welcome to MLA Academy of Higher Learning (MLA AHL) – a premier educational institution in North Bangalore. Situated in the verdant locality of Malleswaram and managed by the nine-decade old Malleswaram Ladies’ Association, it offers under-graduate courses in Commerce (B.Com) and Business Administration (BBA) besides post-graduate courses – M.Com and Post-graduate Diploma in Human Resources Management (PGDHRM). And yes, admissions are open to both boys and girls.
Permanently affiliated to Bangalore University, UGC recognised, NAAC accredited, Member of NIPM and NEN and winner of National Young Leaders’ Award for its National Service Scheme (NSS) coordinator, AHL has something to offer for every kind of student. Interactive teaching style with adequate infrastructure makes it the right choice for every student. A well-stocked library with a plethora of e-resources is any student’s haven. For those who would like to develop their talents, various cultural activities and Inter-Collegiate events provide the right forum. For those obsessed with fitness and sports, we have ‘Kreedaranga’, the Sports Forum. Actually, be it ecology, social service or literary pursuits, we provide a suitable platform for the furthering of diverse interests.
It’s with great pride that I say that AHL is an educational institution that believes in the holistic development of students and hence we strive to enhance knowledge, skill, social, emotional and culture and value quotients in our students. We move beyond mere textbook learning to provide a real-time experience of the workplace through regular industrial visits, internships and guest lectures from experts working in the corporate sector.
We simply don’t invite small-time novices at the end of the course for recruiting students. Value-added and enrichment programs like Communicative English and Pre-placement training are a regular feature. Our Placement Cell works right through the duration of the students’ stint in College to help them acquire the skills required to fare well in the campus interviews conducted by big names in the industry. IBM, Infosys, HP, Standard Chartered, Tally and JP Morgan are some reputed companies where our students have been placed. Currently, TCS and Northern Trust are the top hiring companies on our campus.
In the process of leading them by hand through the University-prescribed study and examination processes, we also mould their personality, instilling in them values, life skills and the right attitudes. So, it’s clear that we not merely churn out productive workers and dynamic industry leaders, but also an enlightened citizenry who can contribute positively to nation-building.
In conclusion, all I can say is, joining AHL will be one of the defining moments of your life, for you can be assured of a secure future, having the opportunity to ” ENRICH, EXCEL, EVOLVE ” for this is a place where you are taught to reach for the sky and …. beyond!
