My sincere appreciation and gratitude to all the faculty members and the management for the unconditional support throughout. Our University helped me to grow both personally and professionally.
SSPU has a unique curriculum that gave me an opportunity to sharpen my skill sets and has definitely broadened my knowledge about the retail sector.

The college also gave me the opportunity to intern with a Fortune 500 company and helped me evolve in different aspects. I would highly recommend this university for students who wish to have an engaging and knowledgeable learning experience and have a glowing career in retail
