Our Vision

Reducing unemployment by upskilling the next generation of talent

The employability crisis in India

Our education system is mainly based on theoretical knowledge rather than on field experience. This has led to over 70% of graduates lacking employable skills. We believe this employability gap is caused by a lack of internship experience and specific job training.

Our MBA program fills that gap by providing our students with opportunities to work at top-tier companies, combined traditional learning enabling students to supercharge their employability
