Upskilling Programs: Another opportunity to learn afresh
If you always wanted to learn a subject, but somehow missed it, here is your opportunity now.
Upskilling programs provide students an opportunity to learn the subjects of their own choice irrespective of the domain the student has been educated in. After completion of the course of study through the program and the requisite credits are obtained by the student in the self assessment, the candidate goes through an online examination to obtain the certificate of completion. For ease of selection, the programs are aligned on five major disciplines.
According to NASSCOM estimates, there would be a potential shortfall of 5,00,000 skilled professionals by 2010. Such situations have made all industry sectors to rely heavily on finishing schools to develop skilled professionals. This adds to the responsibility on finishing schools as they fill the existing gap between academia and industry.
