Villa Marie Intermediate, Degree and Post Graduate College (established in 1991 in Hyderabad, India) is an educational institution which was started by Dr. Y. Philomena, Principal and Director. The institution was started as a modest intermediate junior college in its present confines at Somajiguda. Since then it successfully expanded into a degree college in 1996 with an affiliation to Osmania University offering bachelor's degrees in Arts, Commerce and Science and later as a post graduate institution offering master's degrees in Business Administration and Computer Applications.[1]


This institution was established in 1991 citing the paucity of good intermediate junior colleges for women in the Hyderabad area. The institution was founded on the principle "Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers" and it is reputed to constantly improve on the methods of teaching and education.[citation needed] Since then Villa Marie has expanded to include the Undergraduate Degree division which was started in 1996 and the Post Graduate College of Management and Computer Applications in 2000.[2]
