The journey of Pragati began in 2011, with the setting up of a vocational training institute to train students in hotel management skills to find employment. That institute became the most successful skill training institute in the region, which has till date provided employment to more than 4000 of its alumni.
In 2016, we obtained approval of Department of Education, Government of Assam to provide college education. We thereafter entered formal education offering BBA and B.Com under Gauhati University. The underlying philosophy and objective however remained same – how to provide relevant and employable skills to graduates. In formal college context – apart from the University Syllabus we are committed to providing additional skills – that prepares the student to get a job or pursue higher studies.
“The mission of Pragati School of Management is to be the cradle to nurture each of its students as empowered youth who will each play a significant role as leaders of society and thereby contribute towards creating a more humane and peaceful society. We will do so, by deploying cutting edge and pragmatic educational methods and practices, making them affordable and available to the students of the NE region – inspired by our belief in the boundless potentials latent within each individual.”

The faculties of Pragati school of management has fostered confidence and patience in me to work hard and pursue my dreams with no boundaries. I feel fortunate to have been a part of this wonderful family.
Studying my HS in a popular college in Guwahati, I lost direction and did not perform well in my Class XII. I am grateful to Pragati for inspiring me to consistently score 70% during my graduate studies, and also dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Not satisfied with my performance in Class XII I wanted to do better in graduation. The faculties at Pragati gave the right impetus for me to dream bigger.
I wanted a college life where I could polish my personality and also start my journey to become a CA. With constant support and encouragement of my faculties I achieved both and cleared my CA foundation..
Coming from a science background I needed a lot of extra support with Accounts. The faculties at Pragati made it possible for me to not only master B.Com but also clear my CA foundation.
My teaching philosophy is to ensure that the learning becomes enjoyable for the students. At Pragati, our philosophy is to cater to the needs of each and every student. While a demanding task - I am proud to be a part of this institution – that aims to foster truly capable leaders of society.
I have been teaching at Pragati since inception. This has been highly inspiring and educative process – where we as faculties are trusted and respected and are expected to communicate the same trust and high expectation to our students. Today, teaching isn't just a profession but it gives meaning and purpose to my life.
