Overview of this campaign
Let knowledge and creativity take you to a new high.
MiE (Magazine in Education) is first of its kind magazine focused school contact program for students of India.
The MiE program was rolled out in June 2014.
The objective of MiE is to build an educated tomorrow, today, and create ‘Top of the Mind’ awareness for ‘Young Bhaskar’ magazine to bolster the future readership for mainline products.
