Placement

Students are offered internships in the middle of the courses. Why? Because getting internships are very easy. Most interns are not paid during their internships and just given a certificate at the end of it. So, a lot of companies are eager to hire interns because it doesn't cost them money and they are hard workers. We strive to provide paid internships to our students during the course. Our aim is to provide the best training to our students so that they get placed. A placement cell headed personally by the director is working day in and day out to provide jobs to the students. So, with us you will see beyond internships.

One of the best institute for this industry. Professionals are the professors here. Great learning experience. The best part is that there are no exams. An Institute whose prime motto is to bring out the best in an individual by providing them with indispensable opportunities. Mr. Soumyadipta Banerjee is by far the most prudent and amiable Director I've ever seen. How often do we see a Director taking personal efforts in student development? The liberal and friendly approach bridges the gap between the faculty and student, which leads to productive conversations and better understanding. Studying Media has never been this fun and gratifying.
