Saket Kumar Singh, the founder of ECT, said: “We met both the criteria. The students validate their theoretical learning through a closely supervised internship opportunity and unprecedented growth in content creation has opened up the path to create massive wealth. There are proven studies where employers have lauded written communication as the most desired skill in their new candidates.”
