Global online examination and remote proctoring platform, Mercer Mettl, is IIM-C's exam partner in leading it’s shift to the digital mode of education. The transition to the online education ecosystem, amidst the prolonged pandemic-induced disruption, helped the B-School maintain academic and examination continuity.
