Upskilling the World's Largest Source of College Grads

With over 30 million students enrolled across higher education programs, India produces more college graduates than any other country. However, for the ~6 million new graduates each year, only ~300 thousand new white collar jobs are created in India. Most students finish their degrees without acquiring skills that will make them employable, and often feel the need to upskill themselves outside the formal university realm. This demand for upskilling has created massive opportunities for online education. Executives from leading upskilling platforms UpGrad, Sunstone Eduversity, and Upraised join in to discuss the growing market opportunity.
