With creativity, innovation and moral consciousness as our cornerstones, the vision of TEDxBMCC is simple- to structure discourse that pervades stereotypes, said notions, and reclusive prejudices, in order to integrate the diverse diaspora, as we know it, to a fluid, thinking, and informed community.
BMCC is a reputed institution for quality education in the field of commerce and business, which tries to facilitate better research and development for the same.
Join us to seek, ponder and question. Join us, for an experience like none other.
