The Hero Group ranks among the top 10 business houses in India, with an estimated turnover of USD 5 billion.
The origins of Hero Group can be traced to 1956 when Hero Cycles Limited was established by the Munjal brothers, namely Dayanand Munjal, Satyanand Munjal, Brij Mohan Lall Munjal and O. P. Munjal. Hero has since become synonymous with two-wheelers in India. Hero MotoCorp (Formerly Hero Honda Motors Ltd.) is the world’s largest manufacturer of two wheelers. In India, it holds a 42% share of the market. Hero Cycles, too, is a dominant force in its field and has been the world’s largest manufacturer of cycles since 1984. Hero Group’s other ventures include steel, energy, realty, corporate training and financial and consumer services.
The Munjal family, promoters of BML Munjal University, have a distinguished track record in the fields of primary education, higher secondary education, medical education, skill training and corporate mentoring since 1964. Through its various initiatives, the Munjal family has educated and empowered over 2,00,000 students in India.
Brij Mohan Lall Munjal University, founded by the promoters of Hero Group, is a not-for-profit initiative by the Munjal Family with the aim to transform higher education in India by creating a world-class teaching and learning environment. Currently, the university has three schools, namely the School of Engineering & Technology, the School of Management, and the School of Commerce. Through these schools, BMU offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses such as BTech, BCom (Hons), BBA and MBA.
