“We have designed specialized programmes in high growth sectors like oil & gas, power, infrastructure, IT, design, planning and architecture, public policy and legal studies for student to make them industry ready,” Mr Ghosh said.
He even said that 90% placements from the UPES are for the students to keep up with the need in above mentioned sectors. The left out 10% are those who start their own venture.
UPES has also started programs to encourage entrepreneurship. Under this placement policy, UPES will provide placement support to students even after 2 years of their graduation. UPES is also about to open experiences zones in Delhi/NCR for promoting student’s information regarding the best educational courses for their career. The plan for these experiences zones includes counselors who will guide and help the students. More experiences zones are to be opened in tier 2, tier 3 cities for more students to be helped.
“With the new placement policy in place, we urge our students to follow their entrepreneurial dreams by giving them a choice to return to their alma mater for placement support,” said Mr. Ghosh.
“UPES already has an incubation centre at campus that provides end-to-end assistance and guidance to students who want to do something of their own. We encourage entrepreneurship and innovation in our students as it is not just about running a successful business; entrepreneurial skills are required if you are in a job or even in day-to-day life,” he added.
