Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Ltd. (MKCL) believes that excellence can be nurtured amongst school children by identifying their natural talent, providing them with appropriate guidance and creating measures to grade them as per the international standards. There is also a need for knowledge based – knowledge centric examination and/or grading system comparable to these international standards. After all, the ultimate academic examinations for students are International Olympiad examinations in various subjects.

MKCL along with Indian Consortium for Educational Transformation (I-CONSENT) have therefore, started a movement called Maharashtra Olympiad Movement (MOM) for standard 5 to 10 students which aims to facilitate students from urban as well as rural areas, so that they become capable of winning International Olympiad Medals.
