ACADEMICS & FACULTY

Teachers are responsive and really helpful if you are interested. However, there may be one or two exceptions but overall quality is best. They are well-qualified and have done several pieces of research not only in India but in foreign too. Teaching methodology is nice some teachers teach through powerpoint while some prefer writing on board. Classes usually start at 8:00 am and ends up at 6:00 pm with several breaks in between. Life is busy and you won't get how time passes.
