This is the secret of all super achievers.” He wished all the students success, encouraging them to bring more laurels to FORE, their Alma Mater.
In the activity report, Dr. Das mentioned that FORE has received two global awards: ”Selected Brand - Asia’s 100 Greatest Brands & Leaders 2016” award at the Indo-Singapore Business Congress “Asia’s Greatest Brands & Leaders 2016” organised by AsiaOne Magazine and URS Media Consulting Pvt.
