Mumbai, 19th January 2024 : With emerging technologies transforming industries, upskilling has become the need of the hour. To help Indian professionals gain a competitive edge in this New Year by investing in themselves, Emeritus, a global pioneer in offering accessible and affordable high-quality education to individuals and organisations, has announced fee benefits for select upskilling programmes.
As the New Year ushers in new resolutions, upskilling stands among one of the most sought-after goals among Indians, marking a high demand for learning programmes. According to the Emeritus Global Workplace Skills Study 2023, which surveyed a total of 1,720 Indians aged between 21 and 65 years from across 20 tier-I and II cities in the country, education remains a top investment for Indians. About 82% of the Indians surveyed as part of the Study have displayed an increased interest in pursuing online education under the current macroeconomic conditions.
To serve this growing need to enhance skills, the fee benefits are aimed towards helping professionals kick off their learning journey in 2024 to gain new skills and knowledge they need for self-improvement and to thrive in the job market. The benefits can be accessed across select programmes in categories such as digital marketing, product management, and CXO programmes.
Announcing the initiative, Mohan Kannegal, CEO -India and APAC, Emeritus, said, “As Indians set out to achieve their New Year resolutions, we hope to enable them to unlock their full potential by investing in themselves. Our studies have shown how education remains a top priority for Indians. Through our partnerships with world-class educational institutions, these programmes offered by leading institutions will help professionals in future-proofing themselves. Being at the forefront of making high-quality education accessible and affordable at all, we at Emeritus are committed to empowering individuals to achieve their career goals and contributing to a robust future of work.”
The initiative addresses the need for 6 in every 10 global workers to undertake training before 2027 to stay relevant, as per the World Economic Forum’s ‘The Future of Jobs Report 2023’. The Global Workplace Skills Study 2023 by Emeritus also highlights that nearly 84% of Indians are relying on further education to give them an edge to compete better against their peers, while 86% admit that high-quality upskilling programmes can help them achieve their career-related goals. Under this context, the need for upskilling is currently being felt strongly across sectors and all career stages, including mid-career professionals to CXOs.
