The origin of Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG)
The roots of MEMG date back to 1953, when our founder Dr. T.M.A. Pai set up Kasturba Medical College on a barren hill on the outskirts of the town of Udupi in the State of Karnataka. In the subsequent years, many other academic institutions followed suit and this vibrant campus became the town of Manipal. All these institutions were brought under the umbrella of the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) that became India’s first deemed university in 1993.
Formed in 2004 to consolidate various segments of institutions and businesses, the Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG) has transformed the lives of more than 3,00,000 students from over 60 countries, through its 11 campuses and 6 universities (3 of which are in India and recognised by the University Grants Commission) spread across 5 countries. MEMG comprises 4 key verticals- Education, Healthcare, Research and Foundation. All institutions and businesses under MEMG are governed by a charter that requires them to offer socially relevant and affordable services.
