It was on 17th October 2001, the day of “Ghatasthapana” that Ambitions Commerce Institute came into being at the hands of Prof. Kaustubh Atre. A private, self-financed system of tutoring, it teaches students the finer aspects of diverse subjects such as Commerce, French and German.

Ambitions it is called because ambitions are what finally see a person succeed in life. And it is in the school & college-going days that most young men and women start to get ambitious. Ambitions Commerce Institute aspires to give wings to its students’ ambitions to grow and progress in life. In every aspect of the Institute, its working, name, emblem and insignia, this fact is most prominent.

Ambitions Institute stands apart in that it remains contemporary and close to students’ needs which have undergone a sea-change in the recent past. That apart, Ambitions believes in building a strong foundation in the students’ minds about the subject which going forward lays the path for the student’s development all through life.
