Unfortunately only 45.9% of the Indian youth are seen as employable*
For the past few years, India has witnessed an ever-increasing employability gap. *As per the 2021 India Skills Report, only 45.9% of the Indian youth are seen as employable. Although there is no dearth of B-schools offering management courses at subsidised rates, the employability of Indian youth continues to decrease.
The cat-and-mouse chase for a respectable degree and high scores has inhibited institutions from providing industry-oriented education, thus rendering students unable to secure their dream jobs. This is where Sunstone steps in with #EducationThatWorks.
