THE CATALYST ADVANTAGE
DISCOVER A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY
As an institution offering orientation in inter-disciplinary areas of Social Sciences, our curriculum strives to enable our students to understand the pulse of society and chart change processes that create appropriate solutions to some of the most pressing issues of our times; and become skilled social sector professionals capable of working with the Government, Judiciary, Corporates, and Civil Society. Catalyst is engaged in knowledge creation that is fundamental to understanding ways of achieving inclusive sustainable development, health, water and sanitation, education, skill development, peace building and national security.
In the last two decades, social sector programmes have expanded without commensurate growth in skilled personnel. Implementation of MGNREGA, NRLM, SAGY, Child protection, Elderly care, Tribal development and other central and state government programmes require thousands of professionals at various levels. Catalyst is uniquely located in the educational space to contribute to this process.
