Great Learning, one of the leading global EdTech companies for higher education and professional training, has announced the launch of Great Learning Career Academy which offers courses in Data Analytics and Backend Software Development to assist recent graduates in starting their careers in new-age domains.
Designed by leading industry experts and Great Learning mentors, these 4-month full-time classroom courses will offer up to 10 placement opportunities per learner upon successful course completion.
According to a recent survey by Naukri.com, 66% of college graduates in India did not have a job as a result of the pandemic. Great Learning Career Academy has been launched to counter these challenges that college graduates face at the start of their professional journey. With these full-time classroom courses at Great Learning’s Bengaluru and Gurugram centers, learners will get the opportunity to engage in an immersive classroom setting and receive best-in-class placement assistance. Great Learning works with more than 12000+ companies to offer unparalleled placement support to its learners and some of the marquee hiring companies include Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Dell, IBM, Flipkart, Infosys, Intel, Deloitte, etc.
The Data Analytics course does not require any prior programming experience and offers a comprehensive curriculum, empowering learners with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a data-driven world. The Backend Software Development course enables aspirants to learn the latest technologies deployed in creating effective and scalable backend systems.
Admissions are now open for the Great Learning Career Academy batches of Backend Software Development (Bengaluru) and Data Analytics (Gurugram), which will commence in a couple of months.
Speaking about the launch, Hari Krishnan Nair, Co-Founder, Great Learning said,
“Every year approximately over 36 million students graduate in India. While students always had difficult time landing jobs of their choice, we also saw how difficult it is for organizations to hire skilled graduates who are aligned with the latest in-demand technologies. We conceptualized ‘Great Learning Career Academy’ with the intention of bridging the gap on both ends. We have a pool of top corporations and startups who have teamed up with us to hire our learners. Through this, we aim to provide recent graduates and students in their last year of college the chance to secure sought-after employment, with placement opportunities from some of the best companies.”
