HITS signed an MOU with Logistics Sector Skill Council (LSC) with objective to launch BBA (Logistics) programme. The special aspect of this programme lies in the blended learning experience which could be a combination of conceptual learning in classrooms followed by a paid internship in industry. Specific curriculum developed by the LSC is to be imparted to the students which in turn would be enhancing their employability.
