Mumbai, the fast paced cosmopolitan melting pot of different Indian ethnicities is also the commercial & financial capital of India. South Mumbai or SoBo (as the locals refer to it) boasts of some of the grandest colonial era architecture such as the iconic Gateway of India, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (Victoria Terminus), the Mumbai University & Mumbai High Court buildings.

October being the perfect time to visit the city as it is right after the monsoons, when one can enjoy the cool sea breeze minus the sultry heat. A relaxing evening walk along the Marine Drive promenade, dinner at the many sea facing restaurants & shopping at the street bazaars of Colaba are a must-do for all tourists visiting SoBo. Marine Drive is also known as the Queen's Necklace because, if viewed at night from an elevated point anywhere along the drive, the street lights resemble glittering diamonds in a necklace.

Join us in this city of dreams for a hearty dose of academics. We promise to make your visit memorable.
