Mahbubul Hoque : An Educational Entrepreneur
"The incredible Journey of Entrepreneurship
by 1 Computer & 4 Students leading to creation of University and beyond"-
-Building institutions ranging from KG to PG to Ph D

Vill. Purbagool, Patharkandi, Dist. Karimganj, Assam


       Born on December 1, 1973 in a rural family of a remote village Barcharra, Purbogool of PS Patharkandi,Dist Karimganj, Assam , Mahbubul Hoque had a turbulent life since his early childhood, he lost his parents and later his brother in a conspiracy. To maintain his study at a very early age, he started with tuitions of the young children in the vicinity and went to the extent of selling home grown vegetables in the local market. Inspite of all such difficulties he went on with his studies and secured 2nd rank in matriculation from Karimganj, did his 10+2 from GC College Silchar, B.Sc (Hons) with star marks and ultimately Masters in Computer Science (MCA) from prestigious oldest central university AMU in the year 2000 by securing 1st Class 2nd Rank.


       Although he had lucrative job offers from multinationals within the country & abroad, after completing his Masters in Computer Science (MCA), he came back to his native place, started his career as an Educational Entrepreneur with a strong commitment to guide underprivileged rural talents and to contribute in the field of science and technology educational scenario of the North Eastern India.
       With only one computer and four students carrying just Rs 85 in his pocket in February 2001, Mahbubul Hoque started a computer training centre under Manipal Group. He did assembling of computers and sold in the market to generate revenue for promotion of computer lab for the trainers. Within 5 years the centre became 2nd largest in the country and received Excellence Award in 5 consecutive times from Manipal. This is just beginning and after that he did not have to look back.


       He continued his struggle and succeeded to achieve milestone one after another traversing several impediments to set up the institutions first in Assam and then in Meghalaya with allied educational activities in whole north east India. For further expansion he established Education Research and Development Foundation (ERDF) and under the foundation created a number of pioneer educational institutions in Meghalaya and Assam disseminating quality education from KG to PG to PhD having present enrollment of 7500+ students out of which 20% students belonging to poor meritorious who are getting free education.


• University of Science & Technology, Meghalaya
• Regional Institute of Science & Technology, 9th Mile affiliated to NEHU, Shillong & approved by AICTE, New Delhi
• Central Public School-Patharkandi, affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi
• Central Public School-Badrapur, affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi
• Khairun Nessa Begum Women’s College, Badarpur, affiliated to Assam University, Silchar.
• Prof Qoumrul Hoque School of Education, Meghalaya approved by NCTE, New Delhi
• University School of Law & Research, Meghalaya, approved by Bar Council of India, New Delhi
• School of Business Science, Meghalaya, approved by AICTE, New Delhi
• HOQUE-20 and FACC for Civil Service aspirants
• University College of Ayurveda & Research (Upcoming)
• University School of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Upcoming)


       As Mr. Hoque himself was a victim of brutal poverty during his student life, he is always ready to extend his helping hand to the poor meritorious students of the underprivileged rural areas. In his all institutions 50% seats are reserved for girls, 20% seats for poor meritorious students in schools for free education and 15% in colleges and University . Altogether more than 900 students undergoing free/concessional education in its various institutions and they are showing excellent result in final examinations and becoming true alumni ambassador of ERDF. Beside proving free education to poor students, Hoque has taken the challenge of providing education to all Students of Meghalaya by giving 50% concession in the normal fees charged, so that not a single student have to go out of the State of Meghalaya or deprived of higher education.


       To encourage the students for competitive examinations, Mr Hoque has decided to return the entire fee from 1st semester to last semester including Admission Fees to the students who qualifies NET, GATE, SLET or any other top level competitive examinations conducted by State & Central Govt. Those who qualify IAS will get an amount of Rs 5,00,000/- (Rupees Five Lakhs) as cash award.

       He has created avenues of job opportunity for 800 quality manpower in his own institutions whereas another 500 skilled manpower are indirectly associated with different projects of the foundation. More than 20,000 students who passed out are either working in different organizations or doing some courses in different prestigious institutions for specialized studies.


       Addressed more than 5 Lakhs StudentsHe always instigates stakeholders to promote science for the country’s future development. He has developed the platform like Children Talent Fest, Winter Carnivals, Celebration of Science Day, Engineers Day etc only to provide a platform for showcasing the student’s talent and creating a competitive mindset among future students. These all programe have become guiding force for the student’s community ie promoting scientific mindset. Because of this contribution DST, Govt of India has extensively supported for DST Inspire programme for science students to be implement at USTM.
       He has interacted more than 5 lakhs students in such occasions and in various schools during their annual festivals. More than 3000 science models have been developed by his institutions in various occasions and some are adopted by institutions like NIT Silchar.

       Mr Hoque always emphasizes that until and unless rural education is not given the priority India cannot be a developed country as its more that 85% peoples are rural based. Therefore, he has established all his institutions in remote areas of backward district giving the facility of city like institutions and after evaluation it has been reflected that more that 80% students studying are from remote rural areas and getting the vision for NEW INDIA.


Under Mr Hoque leadership, all the Departments of USTM have adopted a village in the vicinity of the University. The main objective of this unique initiative is to create awareness in issues related to education, health and economy. Special session for training and guidance specially for the village women are conducted by the depts. Many initiatives are taken by USTM to empower the rural folk through various entrepreneurship and skill development training.

I CAN I WILL ACADEMY for Specially Abled:
       He has streamlined to set up academy for Physically Challenged boys and Girls of age above 14 years commencing from Boys section first to guide them for various job skills based on their strength. Very soon separate hostel for boys and girls will be established. 35 Boys have been selected to start the journey and 4 of them have been engaged in different department.

       Taking care of distressed, patient and helpless people is the passion of Mr Hoque. Besides all coordination and financial cooperation when emergency arises for such needy people, he has set up linkage with all hospitals and organizations for on time services.
