MPS Interactive (MPSi) and MPS Limited
Founded in 1990, MPSi was a part of one of India’s largest conglomerates, which is valued today at more than USD 250 Billion. To further its growth as a global leader in learning, MPS Limited acquired MPSi in 2018. MPS Interactive Systems Limited was the first eLearning company to be assessed at Level 5 (highest level) of SEI-CMM. MPSi has consistently been ranked among Training Industry’s Top 20 Content Development Companies, Top 20 Training Outsourcing Companies, Top 20 Gamification Companies, and Top 20 Experiential Learning Technologies Companies.
MPS was established as a subsidiary of Macmillan Limited in 1970 to change how the world learns. After a change of ownership in 2012, MPS developed significant momentum because of consistent reinvestment in the business and considerable diversification by completing seven acquisitions between 2013 and 2020. Recently, MPS has entered a new growth phase by unlocking synergies between all its acquisitions. The journey to 2027 for MPS is about building a serious scale that includes a market-oriented approach to drive organic growth and an enhanced Acquisition Playbook that involves acquiring growing assets at competitive prices instead of acquiring distressed assets at distressed prices.
