Education – A life long mission
Murgaon Education Society was established in 1971 with the noble goal of providing educational facilities at Vasco-da-Gama and in other parts of Murgaon Taluka. It has been the endeavour of MES College to develop professional skills among its students by providing a select core of leadership qualities. The college has become over the years, a positive force for national and global development. The first educational institution set up by the Murgaon Education Society was the College of Arts and Commerce, which was established at Vasco-da-Gama in 1972. This was also the first composite Arts and Commerce College in the state of Goa to be affiliated to the University of Mumbai and then to Goa University. The college was shifted to its present Zuarinagar campus in June 1985.
The college seeks to bring about an all round integrated development of the intellectual, moral and physical faculties of its students, so that they can become self reliant, play a positive role in the nation building and provide leadership to the society in various walks of life. Pursuit of excellence is the motto of the college .
