Signs MoU with IBS to develop analytics programme

 Business solutions provider Genpact Ltd will be hiring about 10,000 professionals in 2016, including 3,000 in Hyderabad.

It is also likely to set up a new centre in India, in addition to the existing four at Hyderabad, Gurgaon, Kolkata and Bengaluru.

This was disclosed by Amit Bhaskar, V-P and Head (Financial Services Analytics), Genpact at a press conference here on Monday, to announce a Memorandum of Understanding (Mou) with ICFAI Business School (IBS), Hyderabad, to develop an analytics and research programme for students here.

The location of the proposed new centre has not been decided. Referring to the MoU, Bhaskar said there was huge demand and supply gap in analytics. Genpact alone hires 1,400-1,500 in analytics alone every year globally, he said. As part the understanding, experts from Genpact will train students of MBA at IBS to specialise in Analytics.

“Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be eligible for employment in analytics practice at Genpact,” he said, adding that they however would have to undergo the regular selection process of the company.

Global partnerships

In the next 12 months, Genpact is also planning to forge more partnerships with academic institutions in the UK, the US and Australia, among others.

According to S Venkata Seshaiah, Director of IBS, the partnership will help students to understand industry happenings and make them ready to take up challenging jobs.

A letter from the Editor
