“To inspire vision, create brilliance and achieve success” – Dr Shaan Kumar
Our founding philosophy is encapsulated in three key words: Vision, Brilliance, and Success.
We are aware that starting, operating and sustaining a new business in today’s world requires an inordinate amount of effort, and that a lot of entrepreneurs give up on their business dreams before they even begin. We also know that it requires an inordinate amount of effort for top executives to sustain that top business level! We are guided by the principle of holding our clients success before ours. We will therefore do all that is in our power to ensure clients’ success.
“Building a legacy that will last forever”
Life is not measured by how long we live, but by the impact that we make while we are here. Our vision is therefore to build a legacy to last forever. We will therefore always:
Encourage our clients to work hard and to leave a mark in the world, and not just simply exist.
Work to create results that will last forever and benefiting tomorrow’s generation.
Provide golden opportunities to those who deserve them.
“To enable and empower professionals, leaders, entrepreneurs, executives and enterprises to achieve accelerated growth by adopting emerging technologies and strategic solutions to sustain success”.
We grab opportunities helping clients experience and retain successful results in the long term.
SK Group Inc comes from humble beginnings and was founded by Dr Shaan Kumar between 1995 and 1996 as an IT Hardware, Software and System Integration, Education and Consulting Company.
The company was originally situated in San Francisco and was headquartered there between 1997 and 1999 as ERP Product Development and Services Company.
In a short while, the company began to enjoy immense success not only as an IT firm but as a conglomerate with numerous business concerns covering the fields of education, technology, entrepreneurship, real estate, and healthcare.
The company by then had acquired thousands of clients and expanded its reach across the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific. This led to the creation of regional headquarters in the UK and Singapore in 1999/2000. The Singapore office covered Malaysia, China, ANZ and other Asian Countries. The head office of the Group remained in San Francisco.
The group has grown stratospherically and expanded into the fields of real-estate, healthcare, energy, media, entertainment, films, and music, fashion and lifestyle ventures. The remarkable thing is that SK Group has been able to leave an indelible mark on every sector in which it is an active participant.
In 2003, driven by the goal of promoting better education and passing knowledge on to the ambitious, the group, encouraged by Dr.Shaan Kumar (its founder), established the globally recognized and nationally accredited California Intercontinental University. In 2009, CalUniversity.edu made history by being the first private university to receive accreditation to offer a Doctorate Degree by Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) (Formerly the Distance Education and Training Council – DETC) which is recognized by the Council for Higher Education and the US Department of Education.
The group is blessed with a great leadership led by Dr.Shaan Kumar, whose global vision and ambition have taken him to hundreds of cities worldwide in more than twenty-five countries.
Today, the Group has a presence in four continents of the world, with fairly medium to large operations in more than 15 countries and in more than 25 major cities having a corporate office in Las Vegas, Nevada.
