About Us

The heart of Pursuit is its founder, Professor Harshit Shah. An alumnus of NM College, Harshit is a Bcom, CA and LLB. He believes that to lead a happy life the most important thing is to love the work you do. Thus, rejecting various corporate offers he stuck to education as his profession. He has been teaching since his CA days when he was just 21 years old.

He has been a visiting faculty at various leading commerce colleges of Mumbai over the past 5 years which include NMIMS, NM, UPG and Dahanukar. He teaches various subjects relating to Finance, Accounts and Operations.

He is passionate about solving real life problems and thus was always a part of his college festivals and various other extra-curricular events. Over time this passion of his kept becoming more serious and this turned him into a successful entrepreneur.

He has founded 4 ventures:

  1. 1. Pursuit Academy (Formerly known as SJ Tutorials)
  2. 2. Pursuit Career Managers – Career Management services for Commerce students.
  3. 3. Leap Up – Skill based learning solutions to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical world.

An ardent sports follower, Harshit is a big fan on Real Madrid and Mumbai Indians. He makes it a point to organize regular sports events at Pursuit for our current and Ex students.

He is a big believer in the concept of positivity. According to him half the battle has to be won outside the examination hall before you write the paper and this battle is fought in your head. If you are positive about your education, respect the knowledge you receive and enjoy the whole process, then failure does not even come near you. He makes sure to keep all his students motivated throughout.
