Mumbai: Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management (TSCFM), one of India’s premier management business schools and part of The Shahani Group of Institutions, launched its new franchise location at Nalasopara, Mumbai, on Wednesday, March 4, 2020. The event was inaugurated by Dr. Akhil Shahani, Managing Director, The Shahani Group and Mr. Virendra Mathne, Education partner of TSCFM.
The Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management has recently expanded its portfolio to offer Indian students globally recognised courses like Bachelor of Business Management and Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), and an MBA degree from the top ranked Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in the UK. Meanwhile, The Shahani Group is also strengthening its venture into EdTech through Smart Institute, and ask.CAREERS, to fuel its growth into India, South-East Asia, and the MENA region. Equipped with a range of state-of-the-art facilities, the centre has already secured 70-80% occupancy, and offers industry relevant courses including Professional Diploma in Banking & Financial Services and Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing.
Dr. Akhil Shahani, Managing Director, The Shahani Group, said, “The launch of our new franchise location at Nalasopara is only the next step in our efforts to transform and strengthen Indian education, with the view of making students job-ready. Through our range of globally recognised courses, along with an increased exposure to international faculty and industries, students will be equipped to not only take up challenging roles and positions, but also push the limits of their professional capabilities, and achieve new heights, every day.”
Mr. Virendra Mathne, Education partner of TSCFM, added, “The expansion of The Shahani Group is a mark of its strategic approach to addressing the gap between education and employability by helping equip students with the right skillsets that are aligned with the demands of global conglomerates”
Surveys have shown that 87% of all Indian college graduates are not industry-ready. In fact, two-thirds of all Indian graduates are unfit for jobs, with roughly 57% of job vacancies across sectors like Financial Services, Digital Technology, and Healthcare. Thus, the key focus of the campus will be on helping students become job-ready, through increased industry exposure and training, besides enhancing their critical thinking, problem solving, and time management skills.
