Jagran Lakecity University partners with XBillion Skills Lab to launch a 21st century workplace skills program to enhance placement readiness of students for the new world of work.
As technology and innovative business models transform the workplace – the new hiring criteria for entry level candidates includes training in being able to apply new age workplace intelligence over and above their technical competencies or academic qualifications.
In fact, as automation or algorithms take up rote tasks, all job roles of the future, irrespective of field or domain specialization, will require application of abilities such as emotional intelligence, creative thinking, problem solving, negotiation, collaboration, storytelling, critical thinking and entrepreneurship. Institutions like the World Economic Forum name these as amongst the top 10 job skills of the future.
Recognizing their importance in building a future ready workforce – the Government of India has laid special emphasis on training students in these skills in its new National EducationPolicy.
In order to ensure that every graduate from JagranLakecity University is equipped with the required attitude and skill sets to build a successful career in the new world of work, the university has introduced a mandatory 21st century workplace skills program across all its streams in partnership with X Billion Skills Lab – a new age skill development enterprise.
The structured 100-hour e-learning journey includes animated modules, Masterclasses with CEOs & Start up Founders, Curated Must Reads, Personalized Mentoring and contextualized Psychometric assessments.
“At JLU we believe in thinking 2 steps ahead of time so that our students have a head start in their careers. This program will not only provide a unique advantage in the hiring process but also set the foundation for a faster growth trajectory given our students will be equipped to immediately start delivering results with minimal hand holding” Abhishek Mohan Gupta, Pro Chancellor, Jagran Lakecity University.
“We are proud to partner with JLU to enhance the placement readiness of its students for a technology and innovation driven workplace environment. The learning journey is built on the basis of the wisdom shared by 500+ accomplished professionals across sectors. This will enable students to be ‘smart generalists’ instead of limiting their role to just their technical competence”Samyak Chakrabarty, Founder, X Billion Skills Lab.
