SAP allies with 100 universities India
SAP India, a subsidiary of SAP AG on Thursday announced the success of signing 100 universities across the country through the SAP University Alliances programme.
This comes with the latest addition of University Visveswaraya College of Engineering, a top Engineering College in Bangalore.
Students at 100 top colleges in India now have access to Information Technology training benefiting more than 250000 students from 1500 universities that have already participated in the SAP program across 120 countries worldwide.
Aligned with SAP's mission to contribute to economic growth, the SAP University Alliances Program supports engineering, business and Information Technology programs in universities and colleges in India by providing students and lecturers with access to SAP software and training.
It believes in 5 pillars of Learn, Apply, Share, Recruit and pursuing CSR to help the student community to acquire relevant skills to meet the industry requirements. The SAP training courses enables students to pursue SAP certifications and eventual hiring by SAP, partners and customers. This in turn addresses the industry skills shortage by providing a pool of IT graduates who are already trained with hands-on practice of the SAP software, the company said in a statement.
"Talent has become the de facto requirement in the technology industry today and SAP sees merit in contributing to talent enhancement efforts and help meet the growing skill demand of the industry," said Crispian Tan, Director SAP University Alliances Program for the Asia Pacific & Japan region.
"This landmark achievement reflects our commitment of ensuring that the next generations of graduates are ready and able to make an immediate impact in the job market and support SAP's Global focus of Inspiring Millennials to See SAP as the Employer of Choice or Dream Big to become Entrepreneurs," he added.
