Student's Feedback

I got my internship at MSL GROUP. It was a wonderful experience. It gave me practical exposure to the PR world, also to work with big clients. I got to work with Pampers, Cinthol and parachute clients. My teachers helped me to be better and faster with my work even at the work station. All the students got Internship offers.
