As we entered the stylish establishment, the place was filled with entrepreneurial air. The entrepreneurs and representatives we met were very excited to meet with us as they believed this collaboration will enrich the students and offer some insights to our institute.
Each teams respective project, will allow us to apply our knowledge from the consultancy module and develop transferable skills such as time management, professionalism with clients which top recruiters consistently look for in graduates.
