Murgaon Education Society’s College of Arts & Commerce is one of the premier institutions of higher education in the state of Goa. The college was founded by the great visionary and philanthropist Late Shri. Vasantrao Subrai Joshi to cater to the need of educational upliftment of youth in Vasco- da- Gama in particular and the state of Goa in general. The College premises was shifted to the present campus in 1985. Over the years, the campus has been transformed from barren, rocky and unyielding land into a lush green, fertile paradise where students aspire to pursue their higher studies.
