Are Indian graduates employable?

We have talked in our previous blogs about employability of Indian graduates. Less than half of the Indian graduates are employable, reveals the eighth edition of the India Skills Report (ISR). In 2021, 45.9 per cent of graduates were found to be employable, a decline from 46.21 per cent in 2020 and 47.38 per cent in 2019, reveals the report.

Research shows that fresh graduates who have empowered themselves with additional professional skills are more likely to gain employment and be successful in their chosen occupations. These skills can be learnt by anyone looking to be employed. A student must go through a series of employability activities, including internship and on-the-job training, workshops or study tours, preferably in an international environment, that will help in building their employability skills and resume, leading to global employment opportunities.

Leo & Sagittarrius Consulting (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. has tied up with Wilmington Metropolitan University to provide Indian students its program called – Professional Diploma in Lean Management. The above program comes with a very unique feature of a 6-month, on-the-job experiential learning (with stipend) in Malaysia. This opens the path for young graduates with training, to get employment opportunities in Malaysia or any other country of their choice. This experience helps in adding value to their existing qualification which makes them more feasible hires than normal graduates.

Lean management as a strategy and process is highly popular and growing in service and manufacturing industries. The objective of this diploma is to develop lean management skills for fresh graduates or working adults who have the aspirations to learn lean strategy and process, and allows learners to develop and expand their high-level understanding of lean principles and tools in the workplace.

For our country, this is the kind of opportunity which serves to bridge the gap between a graduation and actual employability. This is an opportunity which young ambitious women and men should take full advantage. For details please send email to
