Student Exchange Program 2022

As part of the students exchange program 17 select students will be visiting 7 different international foreign universities for a whole term of study in this academic year. The experience of having different pedagogy is invaluable for their growth. Besides the facility to do cases and projects with students of other nationalities and background affords cross-cultural understanding. Further, the evaluation techniques used in these schools enable students to be on their toes and prove their mettle.

In addition twelve students were selected for exchange to universities abroad, but because of visa issues related to the pandemic, they could not take up the visit.
