History[edit]

Sydenham College, "the first college of commerce in Asia," was established in October 1913. It was named after the then-governor of Bombay, Lord Sydenham of Combe,[2] who was instrumental in making the undergraduate degree of Bachelor of Commerce possible in Mumbai. This makes Sydenham College the oldest degree-awarding institution in commerce. K.S. Aiyar acted as first honorary principal of the college. The economist Percy Anstey was appointed Principal in 1914, a position he held until his death in 1920. It was only in 1941, twenty-eight years after the establishment of Sydenham College, that any other institute started offering courses in the subject. Indian Jurist and intellectual Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was a lecturer of the college.

On the college's seventy-fifth anniversary in 1988, the Indian Post Office issued a commemorative stamp.[citation needed] In 1990, TIME rated Sydenham College as the "Best Commerce College this side of the Suez."[citation needed]

In the year 2019, Sydenham college was de-affiliated from Mumbai University and affiliated to Dr. Homi Bhabha State University.[3]
