Mumbai : upGrad, Asia’s higher edtech leader in a most recent development, announces the launch of five new offline experience centers in Delhi, Jabalpur, Kolhapur, Kottayam and Patna.

“Through these new additions, we are amping up our network of counsellors and coaches who will continue to provide strategic guidance to our learners for mapping their existing skill sets with their career aspirations and goals for maximised professional growth,” said Jeetender Singh, Business Head – upGrad.
The higher-ed leader has witnessed exponential offline demand through its existing 21 experience centers where the count for counselling sessions grew by 1200% during Q1 of the current fiscal as compared to the last year. “The idea of penetrating deeper across non-metros for making quality higher education mainstream is now reaping results, also in the form of business numbers. Our revenue went up by 3.2x through these offline centers in Q1 and we will continue to serve our learners with the best of learning opportunities,” added Jeetender.
upGrad currently has a strength of 26 active offline experience centers across India and aims to add another 26 during the current fiscal. “Driving meaningful career outcomes for our learners is priority for us and therefore, we research a lot to understand how are consumers evolving. This gives us an edge to preempt consumer trends and create offerings which are inclusive and outcome-driven. Our high-impact human-led delivery service – backed by seasoned coaches, councellors, & mentors is fostering higher one-on-one engagement with learners and their families which in turn, shall also strengthen our stature as the LifeLongLearning partner for millions across Indian households,” concluded Mayank Kumar, Co-founder & MD, upGrad.
