Dr. Alexander John Boyd

The Madras Christian College is proud to name its new venture, MCC Boyd Business School after Dr. Alexander John Boyd with a reason. This legendary Principal pioneered the development of MCC for 18 long years from 1938 to 1956, in addition to his services as Professor for over another 20 years. He was called the “Prince of Principals”. Generations of students and faculty fondly remember his contributions even today. Dr.Boyd preached and practiced Principles of Management long before they were formally acquiesced by the Business World. The Business School is founded on the bedrock of MCC values - Academic Excellence, Spiritual Vitality and Social Relevance.
