UCC-The pioneer of professional civil services training in

Bangalore
Bangalore is the IT hub of India. It is the cradle for many start-ups
and enterprises. However civil services training and preparation
had been more of a philanthrophic/charitable exercise or a
government sponsored initiative. There was dearth of quality
training and guidance for aspirants wanting to compete in state
and national level competitive examinations.

Background: It is this vacuum that Universal Coaching Centre
sought to fill. It has come a long way in giving wings to dreams of
1000s of young men and women who had the will and motivation
but not the required direction to compete at the highest level. It
has more than….. selections to its credit………in different streams.

motivational premises behind establishment of an institute which
most felt was not a sound business idea. “When we started the
institute, there was no emulatory standards for competitive
examinations barring training for CAT/GMAT/SAT etc. There was a
distinct lack of professionalism and institutional support for
youngsters wanting to appear for civil services at state and
national levels. They had no direction and most of the centres
were “tutorials” rather than an organized effort. We also did not
have huge resources like some others to finance this venture. But
this did not deter us. In any case, Profit was never the goal of this
venture. We had limited resources but we had a vision to SERVE
…We did not hesitate to take the uncharted path. We invited top
faculties and specailists from other states and Delhi to groom our
students so that they don’t have to travel to far off places like
Delhi,Hyderabad in search of top-class coaching. We left no stone
unturned in this venture. We started small but made a big impact
