Life at TISS:

  • TISS is one of the most disciplined institutions in the country. After completing your study at TISS, you can handle any level of challenge and pressure in your future.

You will get hands-on experience in real-life assignments such as traveling in the city in a group and presenting the experience you witnessed.
  • To talk about diversity, TISS, Mumbai is known for its minimal batch of 60 students, where you will find yourself in between students from all over the country with different educational, social, and cultural backgrounds. This eventually helps you develop a wide perspective, empathize with students who are unlike you and make you sensitive to issues that you didn’t know existed.
