Established in 1932 by Shri. M. V. Venkateshwaran, the South Indian Education Society (SIES) prides itself on its rich heritage. Based in Mumbai, SIES is one of the oldest educational societies in India and is known for its rich tradition of imparting education while inculcating the essence of culture in its pupils. The society, since then has successfully expanded its reach by establishing various institutions that have striven to achieve academic excellence. In the journey to achieve individual milestones and collective growth, SIES started with six ardent learners and today the SIES family has evolved with various educational institutions and is blessed with over 18,000 students under its wing
The society has established a High school, an array of arts, science and commerce colleges, along with academic and professional institutions of higher learning. This includes establishments of Center for Excellence in Management Research and Development (CEMRD), SIES School of Packaging, SIES Indian Institute of Environment Management, and SIES Graduate School of Technology (an engineering institute). SIES Seniors Home and SIES Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswati Veda Vidya Pitha for young children are the latest ventures initiated by SIES. Education blends with tradition at SIES, which in turn reflects on individual and personal growth. This has been achieved through the foresight, wisdom and dedication of the founders with a strong emphasis on high standards of academic, professional and societal performance.
