New Delhi, 26 August 2019: Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Jammu and Talentedge have signed an MOU to launch and offer multi-disciplinary online Executive certification programs focused on mid-career professionals who are aspiring to up-skill themselves for career progression. This will be a great opportunity for an Institution located in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, which has recently been converted into a Union Territory by the Government of India, to expand reach and offer courses pan India.
Commenting on the development Prof. B.S. Sahay, Director, IIM Jammu said “This is a very progressive move for us and would expand our reach pan India. Online learning is gaining a lot of traction from all stakeholders and its growth in India. The Government of India has implemented various policies/initiatives to promote digital learning in the country.
“I believe online learning is a great value proposition for all Govt. and Private Institutions as a way to scale up and expand reach while learners get access to high-quality education. This is our first step in this direction and we are very excited to embark on this journey with Talentedge. The company has an integrated business model which would enable us to seamlessly impart Executive Education online. Also, Talentedge’s best-in-class platform ‘SLIQ’ recreates Classroom environment digitally through ‘Live and Interactive’ online sessions which enhances the learning effectiveness,” said Sahay.
Further, Aditya Malik from Talentedge said “This is a significant development for us and we are delighted to add a new IIM to our existing partner IIMs – Kozhikode, Lucknow, Raipur, and Rohtak. I believe, in today’s dynamic and global business environment coupled with rapid technological developments, it has become imperative for professionals across levels to upgrade their skills from time to time to stay relevant and ahead of the curve. Online learning offers convenience and flexibility and is a preferred way for working professionals to up-skill without leaving their jobs. There has been significant growth in the number of learners who are holding middle-level management positions.
