Riding the winds of change


Striking the delicate balance between the community of scholars and the corporate community has posed a major challenge among the members of the Michaelean community. Bringing about a fresh perspective and a new mindset and sensitivity, it has resulted to a renewal of commitment to transform every threat into an opportunity and every weakness a source of strength.

Redefining service excellence


Making the College programs relevant has been a critical and crucial issue all these years. With its program offerings being oversubscribed, it has to continuously innovate to address the current and future demands of industry and the workplace. With enrolment continuing to dip at uncomfortable levels and costs continuing to rise uncontrollably, the problem of balancing the cultures of corporate community and community of scholars has become a tall order requiring an earnest review, a redefinition of how the College has done its role in its service delivery. The traditional and the conventional must give way to a more focused reinvention of the things being done, to make them current and prospective, in keeping with the needs and demands of the time.
