Acropolis strongly believes in supporting classroom teachings with industry practices. The abstract theories and concepts that are taught in the lectures are reinforced when the students see the practical implementation of the same in industries. Keeping up with the commitment to provide the latest state of art education to our students , the institutes often complements classroom teaching with industry tours. In line with the same, an industrial visit had been organized for the students of MBA (Sem II and Sem IV Operation Stream) to Safe Express Logistic Park , Indore on Sept 8, 2017.
