The Oriental College of Pharmacy was founded in 2004 and is recognised by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. Building on its tradition of excellence, the College offers a well developed and modern program in Pharmacy education.
The drugs & pharma industry is a multibillion-dollar business. In the rapidly changing global scenario and the implementation of GATT & TRIPS in India, it will be only a matter of couple of years, that the pharmaceutical industry and professionals will play a vital role in shaping up our national economy. This new decade is thus, bound to have an ever growing demand of pharmacy professionals not only in the country, but even worldwide. Anticipating this demand the visionary president of 'Oriental Education Society', Prof. Javed Khan put the wheels in motion that brought about the existence of OCP.

Located in the heart of Navi Mumbai at Sanpada within walking distance from Sanpada railway station and spread over a three acre campus, OCP can provide students with resources unmatched by any other institution, thus creating a highly stimulating and inspiring environment for learning.
