” It was an eye opener and years of learning for me. I have had a lot of good memories regarding traveling, hanging out, cooking and most importantly communicating with professionals all around the world. It all happened due to emPLANT and I cordially thank emPLANT masters program for making this happen “

” I’m so glad to be a part of this program. In one year I have learnt a lot of things that I didn’t know, I just leant the European culture and other countries’ cultures and I also get a chance to visit other European countries “
