IT Company GENPACT – which is also into the BPO sector – has collaborated with MP Bhoj Open University to conduct a skill enhancement and excellence programme for selected students on a pilot basis.
The employment-oriented programme will be for students who have passed their higher secondary or equivalent exam and will be for a duration of six weeks and only about 30 candidates will be selected.
Already 25 students have registered for enrollment in the programme that will begin on September 15, deputy director (IT), of MP Bhoj University Dr Rakesh Shrivastava said at press conference today.
The most important aspect of the programme is that successful students will have an opportunity to make a career with GENPACT, following separate interviews.
A walk in interview for admission to the course will be conducted on September 5 and short listed candidates will have to enroll themselves with the MP Bhoj Open University by paying Rs 500 through a demand draft.
GENPACT would organise the training at the main campus of the Bhoj University and the certificate will be awarded jointly by GENPACT and Bhoj University. This will be a pilot project at Bhopal and will be extended to other parts of the State depending on response and result.
GENPACT is also interested in designing a curriculum of language and skill enhancement, which could be taken up as additional course with any programme of the Bhoj University.
The company will train faculties for teaching this curriculum. Students undertaking the programme would have job opportunities with GENPACT.
