Prospective students who need clarity in the various business degrees available in the school can attend the talk conducted by both Suresh Ponnusamy, assistant head at the school, as well as senior lecturer Dr Chelvi.

In this session, students will learn more about the school’s curriculum and faculty as well as embark on a personality profiling test to help them understand their strengths and weaknesses before attending other talks on the different specialisations.

Three other talks will take place from 12pm to 1pm. For students interested in the banking and finance realm, lecturer Navin Kumar will explain the concept of money and give a breakdown of the different roles within the banking, finance and accounting industry.
