The Deogiri College was established back in 1960 in Aurangabad, one of the biggest cities of Maharashtra state. It is affiliated to the Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, also located in Aurangabad. This affiliation ensures that the college remains recognized by the UGC (University Grants Commission). It has also been accredited by the NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council) with an A grade rating. A separate IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. The college was initially meant solely for undergrad programmes, but later on starting from the year 1999, courses got introduced for the post grad level. The campus is spread over ten acres of land.
The Marathwada Shikshan Prasarak (MSP) Mandal was behind the establishment of the Deogiri College. The idea behind this was an institute of higher education for the Marathwada region. Though the region was by then, already a part of Maharashtra, it had for long been a part of the Nizam of Hyderabad’s sprawling empire. There are several educational institutions run by the MSP, including both schools as well as colleges. These schools and colleges are spread out across five districts in Maharashtra. These are the districts of- Aurangabad, Beed, Parbhani, Jalna and Hingoli.
There is a great range of subject options to choose from at the Deogiri College. This is true for both the UG as well as PG levels.

Options similarly abound for the commerce students. The conventional B. Com and BBA can be undertaken here. There is also a Diploma in Business Management (DBM). Uniquely enough, the BCA option also exists for commerce hopefuls, but the course pedagogy is somewhat different from the same course under the science category. At the master’s level, for commerce, there is the single M. Com course on offer here. In arts, the options are aplenty. The M.A. may be pursued for the areas of- English, Marathi, Hindi, History, Sociology, Political Science and in Psychology.

There is a single Department of Commerce and Management, overseeing all programmes related to these fields. The Arts and the Sciences are further divided into several subject- based departments. In the Arts, there are departments for each of the areas offered at the undergrad level, plus the additional one for Sanskrit. Among the Sciences, likewise there are eleven departments, reflecting the broad options on offer here.
The Deogiri College has always believed in providing benefits to the broader society. The students here have likewise been instilled with such value. And that is why the students of this college have been active participants in government schemes such as the NSS (National Service Scheme). Several UGC sanctioned career- oriented courses also get pitched here for the development of students as well as the faculty members. These programmes are run separately, department wise. Some of the area being targeted here include- PC Hardware & Networking, Audio Equipment Maintenance, Tissue Culture, Gemmology, Hydrogeology, Mental Health & Counselling, Salesmanship, Indirect Taxation, Accounting & Auditing, Communication Skills in English and a few more.
The entire placements here is looked after by the Training and Placement Cell (TPC). The numbers achieved have been impressive. Some of the key recruiters in recent seasons have been the likes of- Wipro, Infosys, TCS, ADP, HCL, Wockhardt, Lupin, Nath Seeds, Tech Mahindra and Vodafone. There is also a separate engineering college run by the group. While engineering was initially part of the larger college, it was later bifurcated into a separate college, now known as the DIEMS (Deogiri Institute of Engineering and Management Studies). Besides the engineering programmes, the DIEMS also offers an MBA programme for management aspirants.
