The students are encouraged to learn and develop sensitivity to take up the challenges to demonstrate their personal design philosophy.

Students extend their learning to a higher, complex and sophisticated stage of understanding, and apply their knowledge and skills through projects, often sponsored by industry, thus coming to terms with reality of the world in the learning space through Internship and Industry projects. Further the student is provided an option to study elsewhere in India, or abroad under a Student Exchange scheme with full credit for achievement.

‘Pearl’s Communication Design course was my launch pad. Today I am running a design and brand asset management consultancy firm, Fejjo, with a team of 15 talented people who make the business what it is today. We have clients like TATA, GE (General Electric) and GAIL (India) Limited to name a few.

Joining Pearl after dropping a year after 12th really changed my life. I had self-doubts since I was weak in sketching but Pearl boosted my morale and taught me how to do it. It has transformed me into a confident person who is filled with positive energies and creative ideas. I feel lucky to be a part of Pearl family.

Communication Design has been the most accurate choice I have made during my entire academic time. It gradually helped me to pick my focus stream of career and then pursue it. This course is not only about graphic design but a lot more than that. I interned with Yash Raj Films as Art Director and gained valuable experience by working in the art department of renowned movie production houses. Experience at Pearl has been amazing so far. I can't really express how all the little things I learned here helped me with my work. You grow as a person here. All the practical knowledge helps you make it through swiftly through a long working day. The Journey has been eventful so far and I can surely say Pearl is not like any other college.

Making the decision to pursue Communication Design from Pearl Academy has proven to be a splendid choice in hindsight. The institute offers a very well balanced learning experience with its contemporary curriculum and lots of real-world escapades. I had prodigious expectations from Pearl Academy, and I am proud to say that it has surpassed all of them. Be it the amazing faculty that is ever present to guide us, the flagship machines that we have or the industry exposure the institute of offers, it is simply unparalleled in every regard. It has truly been a delightful experience to be at Pearl Academy.
