Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG) is one of the leaders in the country, in the field of education and healthcare services, with a global footprint.
It all started over six decades ago, in 1953, when Dr. TMA Pai, a doctor, educationist, banker, philanthropist and a pioneer, had the vision to transform people’s lives and bring about social transformation by influencing two crucial aspects of human development, namely education and healthcare. He established the Kasturba Medical College on a barren plateau, near the town of Udupi, off the west coast of Karnataka. Today, this plateau is the vibrant university town of Manipal and the home of Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), recognised by the Government of India as one of the six “Institutions of Eminence” in the country.
