Sucessfully Placed Students
Coaching at GPSIOAM was unique, creative and fun. We learnt modern agriculture and marketing through several skill enhancement programs taught by experts who are regular faculty and guest faculty from India and abroad. I was recruited by “Green Grow Nutrients” and in less than a year I got my first promotion.
