Initially, HLL Academy will function as part of the corporate establishment. We plan to create a separate not-for-profit educational institution,” said HLL CMD M. Ayyappan.
The other programmes in the pipeline by the academy are in the areas of socialmarketing and good manufacturing practices. It also plans to launch M.Tech and MBAprogrammes.
