The root of the organization was seeded in the year 1997 as MICA School Division (MSD) when it made a humble beginning as a venture for meeting personal and educational expenses of the founder of MSD by providing computer education in a school. Gradually out of excitement for innovation and to provide quality services; the organization expanded to provide expertise in different fields of Education and I.T. services.

The work environment and culture of MICA makes it a distinct entity as it believes in happiness as the core objective of work. It cultivates an environment where MICAns get an opportunity to groom themselves as leaders, update themselves with practical skills, take ownership of their learning process and also to indulge in leisure from time to time. It promotes a spirit of co-operation, team building and family like environment amongst its employees. Other than work protocol, the ideology of Mr. Sanjay Jain – The CEO of the organization enables MICA to be a place where everyone is equal, be it the CEO himself or any other MICAns irrespective of their position in the organization or irrespective of their creed, caste, religion, gender, region that they belong to. This spirit can well be witnessed during its fellowships like MICA Sports League, Picnics and celebrations during Saraswati Puja, Independence Day, Viswakarma Puja, Republic Day, Eid, X-Mas, Holi, MICAns’ birthday etc. People working here are not employees but are tagged as MICAns.

MICA is a leader in the sectors it is engaged in; in terms of services and innovations that it provides. This has been possible by the collective efforts of its founders and companions and through constant trust of its clients.
