Meet Our Founder

Mr. Pankaj Goel is the Chairman of Pass Global Pty Ltd trading as ALTEC College in central Melbourne since 2008. He was the CEO of Altec College between 2008 – 2020. He has a B.A. in Fine Arts (with a specialisation in Applied Arts) from the University of Delhi and an M.A. in Applied Communication from RMIT.

Prior to founding ALTEC College, Mr. Goel had his own web technology and design company and trained and worked as a successful graphic designer.
His executive and professional career has spanned more than twenty-five years including working for The Times of India and The Observer Group. He has also lectured at RMIT.

Pankaj and his wife, Abhilasha, have grown ALTEC College to be a leading provider of vocational education for international students, with over 800 students at the Melbourne CBD and Hobart campuses. Pankaj has always run ALTEC Vocational College as if it were a Higher Education Provider. This is partly the reason that it has had such success with its clear ASQA audits and why it maintains the maximum number of years of registration.

Despite this success, Pankaj has always harboured a passion for higher education and is determined to bequeath to Australia a higher education provider of the highest possible quality. He is assembling a formative team to educate industry-ready graduates who will transform Australian businesses and help them thrive in the new economic era we are entering.
