New Delhi: Strengthening its position as India’s largest skilling, training and consulting firm, Safeducate has signed a MoU with IIM Lucknow to offer students short-duration certification programs in business management. The certification course will aim at enhancing the knowledge base and practical skills of students, making them capable of building and growing their ventures. The course will be open to students from business households who have prior exposure to their family business.

Safeducate plans to train students from business families in essential skills including business strategy, innovative thinking, operations and supply chain management, customer relationship management, marketing fundamentals and human resource management. Under the program, students will experience a blended teaching environment which will include 100-120 hours of classroom lectures along with a 24X7 access to online learning aids and course material.

All enrolled students will be able to utilize Safeducate’s talent learning management system platform through which they can find learning aids, reference materials and assessments, case studies, projects and assignments. Students will also be taught practical skills through interactive sessions and class exercises. Lectures will be disseminated by world-class IIM faculty and industry experts from Safeducate. Students will be able to connect with the faculty at any time using the Zoom & Talent LMS web-conferencing platform.

By offering easily-accessible study material and learning aids, practical learning sessions and industry exposure, we want to make these students ready to tackle the complexities of the business world and find unparalleled success.”
