Mohan Lakhamraju, Founder and CEO, Great Learning said, “With digital skills like Data Science, Analytics, AI, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Digital Marketing becoming critical building blocks for most roles across industries, it is essential to include them as a part of the curriculum.”
Raj Singh, Vice Chancellor, JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) said, “In the era when the Universities as we have known them, are beginning to change and the future is certainly going to belong to micro-credentials offered by the best faculty from across the world, two categories of the audience will be the beneficiaries; the ones who need to upskill for emerging job profiles without leaving their current jobs in ‘anything, anywhere and anytime’ mode and those who haven’t had access to quality education yet. By serving these two categories of learners through the UGC-approved online degrees, JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) will not only help the Government to achieve a higher Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) but also make a sustainable impact on the society, as enshrined in its vision and mission. The specialized certifications by Great Learning in Industry 4.0 technologies will place the students a notch above their contemporaries.”
