Two of the BBA students Krishi from Ludhiana and Taruna from Patiala shared: “We always used to be repentant in not getting proper higher education in a top institution. Presently, being students of LPU distance education, we feel ourselves fortunate enough in getting out of that sorry state. Like this highly beneficial workshop, we are guided on many world-class parameters also. Moreover, LPU always strives to provide us (the students of distance education) opportunities at par with its regular students. This is the great experience we get as we never feel that we are devoid of any campus reach and existence. LPU has brought a revolutionary change in the realms of distance higher education. Long live the LPUDE programmes to benefit millions of students like us.”
