7.     Recordings of all LIVE sessions are  made available for accessing any session that  is missed or for revisiting any session
8.     Value for money fee structure [total  fee payable for The  Strategy Academy Masters Program comprising JU plus TSA certified PGDME & Autonomously Certified BLP is less than  the fees of  most PGDM/MBA/PG Programs in Management offered by various business schools in India, even though the LIVE sessions, conducted by faculty personally are held REGULARLY
