Adding a touch of glamour to it, two workshops on dining etiquette and table manners are also held outside of the campus, with an aim to train students on dining etiquettes, table manners and usage of cutlery and napkins during formal dining settings in the corporate world. An elaborate menu is served to the students to familiarize them with various international and Indian cuisines. Students enjoy these sessions, thoroughly, while they also learn new skills.
