Corporate Scholar Selection Program
The corporate world joins MACFAST in
identifying new student entrants with exceptional skill and motivation
through the Corporate Scholar Selection program.
A panel of
eminent senior executives from top-ranking companies and organizations
in the country would put the students through a battery of tests and
interviews in order to confer the prestigious title of ‘Corporate
Scholar’ on them. The Corporate Scholar would be awarded a medallion
with the title, providing an instant distinction. This distinction
would serve as an impetus to the student to work harder, identify and
hone skills even at the start of the Masters program. The title would
add a new colour to the student’s resume and also aid in selection to
corporate bodies, if found suitable at the end of the postgraduate
programme. By this act of recognition, in collaboration with the
corporate sector of our economy, MACFAST aims to promote a high level
of performance among students both during their studies, and later in
