Testimonials

Good faculty with immense subject knowledge. Style of imparting knowledge / PPTs / examples - very good. Assignments / practical experience shared was useful to the participants.
What I really liked about many of the faculties was that they were really trying to make us come out of our comfort zone and were making us think and that too think in a different ways… they were taking us thru various case studies and asking us for a solution..it really made us think in a different ways which otherwise was not happening in our day to day work life.
