Sambodhi Career Academy was founded in 2005 by Mr. Mangesh Dnyaneshwar Borkar, a renowned Competitive Examination Coach and Motivational Trainer. He could start this Academy because he himself had a first hand experience of UPSC - Civil Services MAINs Examination, UPSC and Staff Selection Interview. He is a well Learned & Visionary person having graduation in Instrumentation Engineering, he has also pursued post graduation in Mass Communication and Journalism, Masters and NET in History. During his own struggle for UPSC - Civil Services Exam he didn’t find any suitable Mentor or Institution in Maharashtra where he could get proper Guidance. After gaining enough experience of UPSC- MAINs and Interview he started imparting coaching to the students in and around his rural area for Competitive Exams. His passion is to produce highly motivated, visionary Civil Servants from across the rural-urban INDIA.
An educational Activity which he started at the cost of his own Best career with the social spirit eventually converted into a MISSION and thus laid the foundation of SAMBODHI CAREER ACADEMY in Nagpur District of Maharashtra. In 2006, Mr. Mangesh Borkar moved to Mumbai and since then he, along with few well experienced and dedicated friends has been Imparting coaching especially in Mumbai, Thane and Konkan region of Maharashtra. Our successful students are also carrying on this noble mission of producing socially concerned officers at different states of India. They are organising various activities supportive to preparation of Competitive Exams.
