About Us

Innovate Nepal Group (ING) is an investment holding company that focuses on innovating higher education in Nepal by blending international qualifications with local contexts. Due to the pioneering work that we have done in the country, Government of Nepal’s Ministry of Education had in 2014 awarded our Executive Chairman Mr. Sulav Budhathoki, with a Letter of Commendation for advancing the betterment of higher education in Nepal. ING is the sole shareholder of Islington College Kathmandu (ICK; first academic institution in Nepal to offer UK Undergraduate & Post Graduate Degree qualifications) and majority shareholder of Merryland College Biratnagar (MCB; the first academic institution in Biratnagar to offer UK University Undergraduate Degree qualifications).

ING’s colleges partner with UK Universities and either offer their full-franchised programmes or an academic pathway offering their final year degree top-up.

As part of our expansion plan for a strong presence throughout Nepal, we have recently acquired/started 4 new colleges – Herald College (Kathmandu), Itahari International College (Itahari), Informatics College Pokhara (Pokhara) and Kathmandu Frontier Associates (KFA; Kathmandu). All these four new colleges are either already operational or are expected to commence their operation by Autumn 2016.
