New Initiative - Finishing School

"I want to look back on my career and be proud of the work, and be proud that I tried everything"

-Jon Stewart

Finishing School is defined as an institution which teaches students the finer aspects of etiquette and soft skills over and above the academic qualifications and helps students to achieve their dream with ease. It adds an extra thrust to our students to learn with much more focus, towards their career dreams.
