MENTORS


Programs of RIMSR are unique in nature. While they permit the student with flexibility in his learning curve, and at his own pace on virtual platform, the important student-teacher connect is not sacrificed. That’s how the programs are blended.  Instead of exposing students for on-ground session of 45 to 60 minutes where they interact with the faculty, the Blended Programs provide much more time for such interactions. That’s the advantage of having mentors, because, they are there to help whenever students need them. The mentors of RIMSR are chosen ones with great care. They are competent, experienced, willing to help students at any point of time, and moreover, with a zeal to contribute, and to shape a student from a “raw-block” to a well chiseled sculptor.
