Book Review Presentation

 A wise man once said ‘A book is a dream that you hold in your hand!’

At Don Bosco immense importance is given to application based learning. With a view to inculcate the habit of reading in students and help better their understanding and interpretation skills, a book review presentation event was organized on 22nd July 2015 from 1pm – 5:30pm for the second year MMS students. They were divided in 10 groups and were asked to explain key concepts of the book while also give examples of companies applying those concepts.
