Anchored by its vision of developing a competent workforce for nation-building, UPES ON remains true to its core values: Respect, Passion, Inclusivity, Trust, and Innovation.
Innovating for Tomorrow
One of the most captivating facets of UPES ON's new phase is the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the curriculum. With UPES ON, working professionals pursuing MBA, BBA, BCA, or Upskilling PG Certifications can learn AI in their domains while effectively balancing their work commitments.
Aatash Shah, Professor of Practice at UPES Online and IIM-alumnus emphasizes the significance of AI in education. “Artificial Intelligence (AI) today has risen as the technology that will revolutionize the way people live and work. Job roles that are prevalent today will disappear, and new ones will emerge. At UPES ON, we pride ourselves in making our students future-ready and capable of leading their organizations into the future. This is why we have integrated AI in a big way into our curriculum. Our students will not only learn how AI works, but also how to harness AI technologies beneficially and ethically in their work. They will also be supported in their learning via AI tools like doubt resolution and interview preparation bots. Once they graduate, UPES ON alumni will be disruptors not the disrupted!”
