I studied here while I was working, all the professors and lecturers are very cordial, help students in every daunting task during study, fee structure is also very good, curriculum is very explainative, reserched by professional researchers which helps students to understand in every way. I enjoyed and learned all the things during my tenure.. Thank you ICFAI...
