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.

In the pursuit of taking accountability for students’ careers, two serial entrepreneurs Ashish Munjal and Piyush Nangru decided to lay the foundation of Sunstone. Directing all amenities and infrastructure toward getting students placed in their dream-jobs, Sunstone has been providing 100% placement assistance to the students across 40+ leading institutes in 30+ cities pan India.
