In the words of   Vinay Pasricha, Chairman, WLCI India, “We go to the industry first, ask them what they want in their candidate and then customize curriculum to industry requirement. This exercise secures placements for our students”. The college has partnered with more than 300 leading national and multinational companies across all segments of the corporate world.
