The Bhopal School of Social Science (popularly known as BSSS) is located in the city of lakes, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. BSSS was established in 1972 by the founding chairman of the college, the then Archbishop of Bhopal, Dr. Eugene D'souza, in response to the felt need of the time for a broad based, job oriented curriculum with focus on social service and entrepreneurship. Over the course of the past 43 years BSSS has evolved into one of the premier educational institutes of Madhya Pradesh. It is an autonomous college and accredited A grade by NAAC.

BSSS Main Gate.

Initially known for its Social Sciences and Management courses, which are indeed its novelty but it grew and diversified to meet the changing needs of time and education, with the introduction of courses in B. Com, B.B.A, B.C.A., and many others. The Undergraduate programmes were further developed with the addition of Post Graduate courses in social work, English literature, Commerce and Business Administration. The college offers an International MBA through collaboration with Assumption University, Bangkok in keeping with our sensitivity to global needs. This is a twinning programme where students do part of their studies at BSSS and go on to complete the programme at The Assumption University.
