‘The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ The magnificent journey of the Poddar Group of Institutions began in 1998. In the words of the Founder and Chairman of the Group, Dr. Anand Poddar, “In spite of being from a business class family, I was working as a trainer because the need to strengthen the Youth was always in the back of my mind. Even in the 5th decade of India’s independence, young graduates were struggling to even get a job. Specialization in every sector was being introduced in India. I figured out that the lack of significant and innovative programs were the reasons for poor employment. My heart cried out to see that the Youth with so much potential are not getting what they deserve.”
That was a golden instance when Poddar Group of Institutions was formed with the aim to foster learning and achieve excellent standards of quality education keeping pace with rapidly changing technologies and best practices.
Thus the Institution was established to bridge the gap by emphasizing value-based programs to make students corporate-ready and train them for startups.
The Group has been envisioned to impart Purposeful education initiating from Primary school education, various UG and PG programs to high-end research programs (Ph.D., Incubate Technical Support Programs) thereby catering to both industry-specific and employability options encompassing multiple facets of divergent disciplines. Colleges of the Group focus on Best Innovative Academic practices reinforced with student mentoring and learning & support activities through various clubs and cells. Our Alumni are carrying rich values and virtues making us proud by scaling newer heights in various facets of their careers.
The vision of our foundation is in consonance with our mission. The vision is to provide excellent opportunities and value-based learning, innovation & teaching that fullfills the need of students, and encourages them to meet the challenges as an active participant in shaping the future of our world.
“To Succeed in Your Mission,
“You Must Have a Single Minded Devotion to Your Goal.” – Dr. Abdul Kalam
The goal of our revered institution stands on the pillars of quality teaching and learning, deprived of which, the progress and development of any child is fractional. Through the medium of research and outreach plans, rendezvous of the pupils with many renowned people across different fields, the institution aims to create, convey, and apply the available knowledge to expand the personal growth of the students. Another important aspect which the institute refuges is the advancement in the social and community development which would, in turn, lead to an improved quality of life.
Paying heed to the leading scenario which points towards increased level of competitiveness in the modern world, our institution provides a holistic environment to the students for their overall development.
It’s wonderful to share my experience of being with the Poddar group. I did B.Sc. From the Poddar international college. The priceless knowledge that I got in Poddar college is my biggest achievement. The environment of college really helped me to reinvent my self. All this could happen because of the motivation and guidance given by my all faculties. I am really thankful to all my gurus and Poddar group members who helped me.

I succeeded in joining Poddar International college and had to plan my career route. It was a difficult process and I had to be honest with myself and make some tough decisions. I chose Chemistry subjects that I enjoyed or wanted to try Teaching. I was inspired by my PIC teachers and changed my career path from industrial to Teaching. I went on to gain a degree in chemistry, followed by my postgraduate qualification. It has been important to me to be able to teach and to give back some of the support that I was given when I was younger. I now do teaching at Govt. School Lucknow UP. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of staff who worked hard to help me believe and achieve. To me, PIC is an amazing place that believes in its students, equal opportunity for every student, and can help any student achieve success.

Poddar College was a directional way of my life. I was really inspired by Anand Poddar Sir who gave me the best advice as a Mentor. Poddar Group is a platform for development all over the areas. He advised me to respect your work always, no work is small that’s why I choose CRPF to save my country.

Just right after BBA 2011 examination, I have got an opportunity to work with one of the prominent investment banking organization i.e. Deutsche Bank Group & my association with DB was around 5.5 years (proudly the first BBA student from Poddar) I got aligned to Business Management team and was responsible for various strategic projects (Cost reduction, streamlining MIS reports &, etc.). After a couple of years, senior management started recognizing my efforts and gave me an opportunity for short term assignments in Frankfurt Germany (HQ). My role in DB was quite flexible hence I touched base upon many aspects of Investment Banking (KYC reporting, Financial Planning & Analysis, Trade settlements & Project Management). Also got recognized as Presentation Trainer across Jaipur DB site.
After the learnings of more than 5 years in the same organization, I realized I should explore myself more & embrace my career so I decided to relocate to Banglore and started working with HSBC (Investment Banking Team) and got the opportunity to travel London for a project.

About Poddar: ‘My College inspired me to think differently. It’s like no other time in my life’

Poddar is NAAC recognized autonomous institute and studying in Poddar as an MA English literature student is wonderful for me. I don’t think it would have all got me quite so down if just once in a while—there was at least some polite little perfunctory implication that knowledge should lead to wisdom, and that if it doesn’t, it’s just a disgusting waste of time! But there never is! You never even hear any hints dropped on a campus that wisdom is supposed to be the goal of knowledge. You hardly ever even hear the word ‘wisdom’ mentioned!

The System here beckons me to think out of the box and apply theory to the very current issues facing the corporate arena. The faculties over here are really talented, supportive, motivating, and friendly. I got really good placement opportunities with top MNCs. The college has its own way of updating students for their incredible growth.

I feel proud when I think about what I was and what I am. The credit for this proud feeling goes to my teachers who helped me for developing me and my career. The precious thing I learn in PIC is; It is good to seek perfection but it is better to seek excellence. It is good to work hard but it is better to work hard and smarter. It is good to have a dream but it is better to actually pursue. Thank You Poddar International College.
