ELP Overview

Experiential Learning Projects (ELP) program is an academic driven management consulting intervention under which our senior students’ groups from the BBA and BS-Accounting & Finance (BSAF) programs, help organizations in analyzing the issues that warrant investigation, conduct primary & field research, and develop options for cost effective implementable solutions.
