The reason why I chose to come to IIM, Calcutta for this EPDSMMS is that the time has started to change now. The pedagogy has been excellent. Not only have we been exposed to the basic concepts of marketing but also to the case studies & methodology of learning in group studies and environment which is very conducive for the knowledge sharing as well as the peer learning. Also, the latest topics which are right now going digital and social have also been covered very well.
