About NMIMS Global Access:
In the early 2000’s, when unrecognised online courses proliferated the market, the School of Distance Learning was amongst the first to spot the need for quality, affordable, UGC-recognised higher education programs that could be delivered via digital platforms. That led to the institute metamorphosing into NMIMS Global Access (NGASCE) with a core mandate of making excellent higher education accessible to the youth and working professionals of India and Bharat online. NMIMS Global Access is India’s premier online and distance learning institution.
