The rare opportunities of learning from best institutions like Harvard was also conceptualized and to our fortunate, we made it feasible for our students to learn various courses by expert faculty of Harvard Business School. Moreover, all certificate courses will be made available to our students on highly subsidized cost.
9. Strengthening of Center for Corporate Relations (CCR) – The CCR department will be further strengthened and restructured so as to cater the training and placement requirements of all the schools.
