Mangalore: The New Aloysius Campus at Beeri Set to be Inaugurated by Prime Minister

Nov 23, 2009

Administrative Block of AIMIT, Phase 1 of campus is almost ready and will be inaugurated by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh very soon.

At the invitation of Fr. Denzil Lobo, SJ, Director  AIMIT,  Ivan Fernandes (MD, Ducont Dubai ) & Charles D’Souza (HR Consultant Emirates NBD, Dubai) , (herein refered to as the ‘Team’ ) met to discuss various issues regarding the new campus at Beeri, Mangalore for St. Aloysius Institute of Management and Information Technology (AIMIT).  The various issues discussed during the meeting are highlighted for the benefit of our alumni and well wishers.

Classes at the new campus have started. View of one of the new (huge) computer centre.

The Institute

While St. Aloysius College is located prominently in the heart of Mangalore for over a century, the Jesuit Society in Mangalore scouted for new land and finalized a new location in Beeri a few years back to setup their Management and IT campus named St. Aloysius Institute of Management and Information Technology (AIMIT).  All the management and IT courses undr AIMIT have recently shifted to this new state-of-the-art campus at Beeri (close to Ullal) on the outskirts of Mangalore. The Team toured the campus and received first hand information on the progress of the construction works. When fully complete, it would accomodate over a thousand students and faculty members,  pursuing courses such MBA, MSc (BioInformatics) and MCA. In the future this institute will also offer consultancy and management development programs.

The Team felt  that with excellent infrastructure and quality of education, AIMIT would, in few years time, compete with the best of the academic institutions in India.  Discussions with various foreign business and technology institutes especially those based in the United States for a possible tie-up are ongoing.

It is gratifying to note that new campus is likely to be inaugurated next month by none other than the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh. This itself speaks for the quality and contribution of St Aloysius College to society and to the development of education in the South Kanara region. Readers would recall that in the year 2004, the Information Technology wing at St Aloysius college was also inaugurated by the then President of India Abdul P. J. Kalam.

The Alumni

While the college has been in existence for well over a century, it basically met the education needs until graduation and hence it was perceived that the college must provide post graduation courses to our students to help them excel in the careers in line with the current needs of industry.  The college has produced tens of thousands of Alumni but unfortunately has not built a strong Alumni network.  The contacts between the Alumni and College has currently been restricted to those few interested Alumni. 

However, a few years back initiatives were started to galvanise all the Alumni around the world and soon there will be formal chapters in every location where our Alumni has a significant presence under the proposed parent organization Aloysian Partners International (API). So far Aloysian Partners North America (APNA) and St. Aloysius College Alumni Assocation in Mangalore (SACAA), are the only formal chapters until these will be formally inducted under API.   The Team discussed strategies to setup of new and formalise existing Alumni chapters under API in various countries and transform them into a vibrant community for a mutually beneficial relationship. In order to support this initiative a dedicated group would be appointed in Mangalore that will liaise with various chapters.  The Team has set a target of  a dozen chapters with a database of 5000 members within the next six months. API over a period of time will build a website to provide information on the progress of the college and its students, profile successful Alumni, release periodic newsletters, assist in networking of Alumni across various geographies, help in finding employment opportunities etc.

Public Relations

The Team felt that it is important for the college to be in the media by highlighting its regular activities. Accordingly, the Team decided to appoint an agency to look into the PR activities of the institute. A series of events will be agreed for the next 12 months starting with the inaugration by the Honorable Prime Minister, and the selected agency will ensure that these would be carried out in right earnest. Activities will include articles on the print and online media, television and radio. Such initiatives will not only help in branding AIMIT but also bring our beautiful city of Mangalore into national and international prominence.

Business Plan

Professional management is core to the Insitute’s ethos. The Team discussed the necessity and importance of a business plan and a feasibility study done by an independent  authority of international repute. The study would help in reaffirming the goals and plans of the institute and come up with various strategies for its success such as curriculum, branding, governance and financial models for fees and funding.

In order to setup a world class Institute, one needs to take up a ‘big bang’ approach. The construction of the campus has been broken into 2 phases with a overall budget of around INR 60 crores. The Team discussed the current financial situation to achieve this objective In order to complete the 1st Phase of this campus, the total cost is estimated at around INR 27 crores, the contributions received until now only amount to around INR 3 crores.  INR 7 crores has been ploughed into this project through internal accruals by the Jesuits.  The Insititute has been compelled to borrow over INR 17 crores for completion of the 1st Phase on which it incurs Bank interest of around INR 2 crores per annum. On account of this high Bank interest, the total working capital of the Institute increases 100%. There have been a few pledges which have not translated into revenue as of now.  The Team hopes with the updated business plan, it would bring out additional strategies for donations from Alumni as well as well-wishers in addition to grants from individuals and corporate houses including interest free loans to complete this project

Advisory Board

The success of every institution is dependent on successful indivuduals providing support and direction by being part of the Advisory Board.  AIMIT with its objective of being one of the top 10 Institutes in the country also needs to have a strong Advisory Board considering that it has several prominent Alumni who deserve to be on this board.  Several names of successful Alumni were discussed and the management will contact them to get their nod to be on the Advisory Board which will direct the management in achieving it objectives. 


Father Denzil Lobo SL, who is the Director of this Institue has been tirelessly working to create a world class Institute to benefit our younger generation in and around Mangalore. Although the goals are to build a world class Institute, it cannot be realised without the support of our Alumni, well-wishers and corporate with social responsibilities.. With a distinguished advisory board, an engaged faculty, bright students together external well wishers, this dream will come true. After all this is OUR Project and most significant for our beautifical city in recent times.

Charles D’Souza, although not at alumnus of St Aloysius College, strongly believes the potential impact the AIMIT can play towards the economic development of the city and Mangalorean society in general.

    Charles, great job with the informative article on the AIMIT project of St. Aloysius. Rehana my wife and I visited the campus in August 2009 and we were overwhelmed. AIMIT is shaping up to be a world class management and technology campus. The lecture halls, libraries, computer labs, the administrative and accounting blocks, the hostels, the chapel, the auditoria - each and every facility is state-of-the-art. AIMIT is going to be another great jewel in the crown of Mangalore, a matter of great pride for us Aloysians and all Mangaloreans. In the true Jesuit tradition of quality, value-based, secular education, AIMIT is going to be a world-class institution, producing world class leaders. I am so happy to be contributing my mite to the project as part of APNA. I call upon all Aloysians and partners to be part of this project - through your contribution in terms of finanacial support as well as in your effort to invite others to partner with this great venture.

  • Fr. Ozzie Mascarenhas SJ, Mumbai/Mangalore - Detroit, USA

    Sun, Nov 29 2009

    The Beeri Project with its focus on AIMIT is putting SAC on the world map. Congratulations to all that translated a great dream to an awesome reality - my kudos to Fr. Francis Serrao SJ, ex-Rector of SAC and present Provincial of the Karnataka Province who pioneered this project with Fr. Denzil SJ. and his crew. Great work. But we need to marshal our support to this project both in terms of financial and human resources. Great works need to be nurtured with great contributions from one and all - my prayer is that SAC alumni-ae and friends from all over the globe may step up to the plate and lend their generous hand to clearing the gaping Rs 17-crore debt at our earliest opportunity. God bless this effort. It is something all of us will remember for many years and leave our posterity something to be proud of. God bless all those who made this project a reality.

    I am constrained to admit that there is a mistake in the comments that I forwarded to Daijiworld on 26.11.2009 with regard to St. Aloysius' Project at Beeri. Father Denzil is being assisted by Father Jeevan Prabhu. He has joined to help in the area of management of finance and administration. Besides scholastic Cedric Mascarenhas is also inducted to help Father Denzil. Joe Gonsalves

    Congrats, Excellent initiative and a welcome addition. I do believe Aloysius (with Fr.

Proud Aloysian.

    Father Denzil.... Why should you be embaresed? Credit is given where credit is due. You have taken upon yourself the gigantic task and shouldered the responsibility. Beeri project is your baby and it would be a mighty task to nurture this child. Assurances are coming forth from different directions and let us hope that we would be able to overcome the financial burden by repaying the loans. You have the good will and support of several aloysians as well as non-aloysians. Joe Gonsalves

    Congrats to Charles for the well worded, well deliberated document. The mustard seed that was sown by the nine Jesuits of sacred memory on The Idgah Hill has now grown into a mighty tree. One Hundred and thirty years of hard work and sacrifices thereafter by several Jesuits have borne much fruit. The Beeri project is a step in the right direction. It is estimated that this venture would cost the exchequer over sixty crores.

    During the first phase alone The Project owes the banks over seventeen crores and unless funding at the optimum level is generated AIMIT will be in deep trouble. Both Charles and Ivan are indeed dedicated people with a fund of knowledge. I had occasions of meeting them at my residence individually. However in the context of the present situation it is extremely important that through various contacts, funding agencies including corporate bodies are identified in areas like North America. Middle East is been a fertile ground where several people go to for funds with success. Would it possible for some one to identify some sheik who can come forward and reach out to AIMIT?.

    On the Beeri front it is observed that Father Denzil handles all aspects of management and it is practically impossible for a single person to handle such a huge project. It is therefore expedient that he has a couple of scholastics to attend to routine matters leaving Father Denzil free to attend to major aspects of management and planning the future of all the projects.

    Thank you to the Jesuit for providing world class education to the residents of Mangalore and its surrounds. World class not just in academics, but more so in values. I am sure the Beeri campus of St Aloysius will be a world leader in producing educated individuals of the highest caliber and values. As someone who has had the benefit of receiving this finest education from the Jesuits I can vouch for it. Thank you Fr. Denzil and thank you Jesuit Priests.

I like his ability to convey the material in a way that not only makes sense but is easy to remember. He is man with great ideas and practical wisdom. Fr. Denzil, Congratulations for the great work. A great project like this deserves a very high appreciation.

    I feel very embarrassed to see so many encomiums heaped on me. I would like to bring to your attention that it is not only me, but so many people who have been responsible in setting up this NEW CAMPUS for Management & IT programmes. Hence the credit also should go to so many. To mention just a few, it is Fr Francis Serrao SJ, present Provincial and former Rector of St Aloysius College who was the one who supported the project, and even when we did not have financial resources, he took a bold step to start the project two years back.

    Fr Leo Perera Sj has been looking into the ution of the project since the inception. He has been visiting the spot almost every day, right from the day the foundation stone was laid back in March 2008. Our Alumni in US have formed the association know as APNA ( Aloysian Partners from North America) under the leadership of Fr Ozzie Mascarenhas, the Chairman and Dr Dinker Rai, the President along with Mr Tony D’Silva, Dr. Ram Rao from Canada, Dr Marian Kamath, Mr Max Rasquinha, Mr Sanjay Currie, Mr Vinod Menezes, Mr Victor Pais, Mr Arthur Shenoi, Mr. Praveen Menezes, Mr Jayaram Bhat, Mr Charles Rodrigues, Mr Joe Gonsalves, Mr Ashok Mathias and a host of other Aloysians from US and Canada. They are taking keen interest in the project.

    From UAE we have Mr Ivan Fernandes and Mr Charles D”Souza who have taken upon the responsibility to organize and get support form our alumni and friends. This is really a gigantic task. You may not know, but we are having huge debt which will amount to Rs 17 crores within next two months. Let us work together to build this world class Institution, here in Mangalore.

Father Denzil is a friendly guide & his dedication & diligent working to create world class Institite to the younger generation of M'lore is a big advantage for Mangaloreans. When we were studing in SAC, father Denzil was an adorable & favourite educator in our college & I am sure he still has that charisma. I wish all the best to Father Denzil & his team for this wonderful project & hope SAC will be recongnised all over the world.

    Beeri complex of the Jesuits under the leadership of Fr. Denzil will shine in the years to come. The scenic drive from Mangalore to Beeri via the Netravati bridge is indeed worth the time and effort. Thousands of young men and women will enjoy the intellectual benefits amidst all the modern facilities of the state of the art project, and will help Mangalore to gain all the name and fame that it richly deserves. Projects such as these need everyone to come forward and render whatever hand of help possible.

    We have visited the site more than once and are truly impressed with the efforts of Fr. Denzil and the team. The help and support for Beeri concept will come from all parts of the world - slowly but steadily, and we shall do our humble part in whichever way we can in order to make Beeri as a frequent tourist spot of attraction during our retirement life in Mangalore. Educational contributions from the Catholic Institutions in India deserve our wholehearted support because it strenthens the value of secularism and will stimulate the Christian values throughout India.

    As one who was very much invoved from the very beginning of the dream for a second campus for St Aloysius College which has now come to realization in the verdant surroundings of Beeri I was very happy to read your wonderful write up on this campus which has begun to hum with activity and pulsate with young, energetic and enthusiastic pursuit of knowledge and excellence. Fr Denzil Lobo deserves all the credit for the great achievement. So too many of our close collaborators, fellow Jesuits and generous friends who dipped deep into their pockets in order to help us realize this dream. From this point of view, St Aloysius Colege, which began more than 125 years ago as a Jesuit response to the persistent pleas of the citizens of Mangalore continues to be "Namma College" or "Amchi Colege". We are indeed proud to be the "Peoples' College". It is the people of Managalore, our Past students, the parents of our students, our friends, well wishers and in a particular Mangalorean Catholics wherever they may be who have been pillars of support to us in this worthy venture. Listing them here would take pages. But their names are carved in gold in memory screnes. The words of one of th Jesuit Alumni says it all: "For us the word "Jesuit" is not an identity, but a "value". What more can an Alma Mater wish for?

    Charles, thank you for writing on St. Aloysius. You, as a non-Aloysian, seem to have found a new love and motivation in taking up the cause of St. Aloysius. No doubt, Beeri New Campus, housing IT and MBA programs is a great and bold step taken up by St. Aloysius College, my alma mater.

    I congratulate Fr. Denzil, a visionary and an innovative leader. This is an ambitious project - to be one of the top most institutes in India. We should not forget that the top most institutes in India, such as IIMs and IITs are heavily subsidized by the Govt. of India. St. Aloysius will find this a great challenge to be the best among the best with meagre resources.

    This is a time and opportunity for the alumni and also the people of Mangalore, now spread all over the universe (on the moon too, I hear!) to recognize the contribution the college has made in its history of over 130 years and support this project.

    Charles and the Team are on the right path in creating a global network of the alumni and rally them behind this project and further growth of St. Aloysius as an autonomous college. Beeri campus, under Fr. Denzil's leadership, will put Mangalore on an international map along with other IT companies (Infosys, Wipro, etc.) coming up in its vicinity. Long live my alma mater in the service of Mangalore and Karnataka and long live amchi Mangala Uru!

    It is very encouraging, that the place where I was born, had my early education, and grounding in life, under the able guidance of the Fathers of St. Aloysius, and all the teachers who taught us there, I must say that new ventures and expansion in education will greatly benefit all the young people of Mangalore and the adjoining areas.

    This institution has always been open to all creeds and faiths, and I have had some of my best friends among these, and am sure the Institution will continue this tradition, and open its doors to all, regardless of their status. May God bless you all and help you carry out this mission. Walter Pais

    Fr Denzil I am sure the Jesuit Dream will bear fruit for the youngsters not only around Mangalore, but the country and abroad. With a diaspora of 25 Million Indians I am sure you will be able to attract more students who are looking for quality and affordable education in a residential school.

    All the best. I am sure with this new beggining there will be more to come and more support from the Alumini's where ever possible. A well written article Charles keep it up.

    Congrats Fr.Denzil. There has been a tremendous growth in the profile and outlook of the institute over the past couple of decades. I have no doubt that the current plans will lead SAC to a much higher level of excellence, recognition and service quality. I am sure the TEAM needs all the help they can get and its time for all the Alumni to stand up and be counted.

    I was a student of Fr.Denzil (he was a Chemistry Lecturer fresh from Loyala college then)in 1986-87.He was a different teacher altogether ,innovative and the one who could motivate us to study AND TAKE UP SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT.We students then had this impression about him that he is a a jesuit missionary and visionarry par excellence. He is Man with ideas and practical wisdom.We see a great future and proud almamater with his accomplishments. May God bless him

    I liked the article by Ivan and Charles on Aimit. More such articles should be published in more web sites for publicity and to attractmore Amlumi. Currently I am busy in th on-going progress of preparing letters to 30 USA and Canada Charitable Foundations. Next plan is to prepare letters to USA Jesuit Universities and Colleges for a donation and/or An Inerest Free Loan.All letters would be signed FR. Rector. Request your prayers for success.-Arthur

    Congrats to Charles for the well worded, well deliberated document. The mustard seed that was sown by the nine Jesuits of sacred memory on The Idgah Hill has now grown into a mighty tree. One Hundred and thirty years of hard work and sacrifices thereafter by several Jesuits have borne much fruit. The Beeri project is a step in the right direction. It is estimated that this venture would cost the exchequer over sixty crores. During the first phase alone The Project owes the banks over seventeen crores and unless funding at the optimum level is generated AIMIT will be in deep trouble. Both Charles and Ivan are indeed dedicated people with a fund of knowledge. I had occasions of meeting them at my residence individually. However in the context of the present situation it is extremely important that through various contacts, funding agencies including corporate bodies are identified in areas like North America. Middle East is been a fertile ground where several people go to for funds with success. Would it possible for some one to identify some sheik who can come forward and reach out to AIMIT?. On the Beeri front it is observed that Father Denzil handles all aspects of management and it is practically impossible for a single person to handle such a huge project. It is therefore expedient that he has a couple of scholastics to attend to routine matters leaving Father Denzil free to attend to major aspects of management and planning the future of all the projects.
