Through this association and by introducing such innovative programs that augment learning in advanced technologies, the firm endeavours to make the youth competent and future-ready.
Akshay Munjal, CEO and Founder, Hero Vired said, “We offer select programs where we are closely involved in the academic side of the business, i.e., creating academic content and delivering it in line with industry requirements – all of which will be aided by the NSDC partnership.”
Hero Vired already offer programs in several niche technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, fintech, and game designing, and more, and this collaboration will improve the employability of the youth and open up multifarious avenues for their professional development.
The programs will focus on holistic end-to-end learning and equip learners with a comprehensive understanding of not only tools and technologies across relevant fields, but the business aspect and soft skills required for problem-solving. While students enrolled in part-time programs at Hero Vired will get a chance to work on industry projects, full-time enrollees will be given internship opportunities where they will work with organisations on solving real-life problems in their domains.
