    Post joining the BAGA program, I truly feel belonging here with the right course content, rigorous teaching, evaluation methodology and experiential learning for my preparation for UPSC Civil Services exams. I truly say BAGA course is made for the future civil servants
    Utkarsh Sinha
    I opted for the BAGA program as its curriculum is excellently designed for the competitive examinations. Despite pandemic, MIT-WPU conducted the academic activities in an online mode, which were beneficial for us. Guest lectures by prominent personalities is the highlight and a thing I like the most. The continuous evaluation methodology is also very helpful while preparing for civil services. The infrastructure of the university is very well developed which helps in overall development

    BAGA is an exquisite choice as program offers to critically analyse various aspects and a scope to grow independently. It also inculcates ethical values. I am thankful to MIT WPU, a renowned institute known for its meticulous curriculum and excellent faculty, for offering the BAGA course for the future civil servants.
