The college will work closely with Ugam Solutions to develop a business-based elective that will prepare students for specific and highly marketable skills within the retail and analytics fields.
The MoU was signed by Dr. R. Rudhramoorthy, Principal of PSG College of Technology and Polytechnic College, and Mr. Sunil Mirani, CEO Ugam, at the college on Wednesday. Dr. R. Rudhramoorthy presided over the signing ceremony. Other dignitaries attending included Ms. S.
