SCMLD came into being by the financial contribution and emotional alignment of, and persuasion by, the former students of Prof M.S. Pillai, who was the director of SCMHRD from its concept & inception in 1993, to April 2004.
The persistent urging of hundreds of his former students inspired him to continue the journey of Human Resource Development by starting SCMLD. And thus SCMLD came into being in a matter of 40 days, with its first batch, in July 2004.
SCMLD’s approach is that of a learning gurukulam. Knowing is of no use unless acted upon/ lived. Performance / execution excellence is the need today. It is a function of the mind, being competent. SCMLD strives to re-engineer that mind and develop such competencies that its students emerge extraordinary in seeing opportunities, feeling balanced, thinking positive, acting prompt and right to produce great outcomes utilizing their emotional & intellectual assets so that they grow faster, stronger and higher.
Thus, they should become an inspiration for their own selves & others, by sheer contribution and success achieved without any shortcuts.
SCMLD believes that education must uncover talents, impart skills, nurture the genius, unleash the leader within, enhance capabilities, enlighten, embolden to do right things / set things right and thus empower to achieve.
