This will guarantee that students are not only academically prepared but also flourish in the real-world applications of these fields.

In order to provide the students with priceless opportunities, strategic industry partnerships will also be formed with reputable banks, financial institutions, and insurance companies. Through these collaborations, opportunities for internships, on-the-job training, and a firsthand look at actual industry practices are made available. This will allow for an effortless transition into professional roles by bridging the knowledge gap between what is taught in the classroom and what is required by the industry.
