Manipal Global Skills Academy, India’s premier skilling and education services enterprise, has launched a robust full-stack development training program in partnership with HDFC Life, one of India’s leading life insurance companies to train the next generation FinTech talent in India.
Manipal Global Skills Academy and HDFC Life have collaborated to hire tech talent to empower the FinTech capabilities in India. The program will be under the umbrella of Manipal Global Skills Academy’s Hire-Train-Deploy model. Manipal Global Skills Academy, a premium finishing school for engineers will hire and train freshers in advanced coding for two months equipping them to join HDFC Life first day job-ready. This model aims to polish the existing skills of India’s IT and Tech talent without the stress and uncertainty of finding a job after the training.
Speaking on this association, Mr. Vibhash Naik – Chief Human Resources Officer, HDFC Life, said “At HDFC Life, we believe that the right skill set combined with relevant opportunity can enable individuals to grow professionally. Life insurance has a vast opportunity for growth in India and technology plays a critical role in the business. This collaboration will not only enable youngsters to be a part of the life insurance industry but also secure them professionally. “
In India, the demand for full-stack developers has increased by 30% in the past year, more and more businesses are recruiting Full Stack Developers instead of separate teams of backend and front-end developers. Full-stack developers can provide the ideal solutions based on the industry’s requirements as they are skilled at both, front-end and back-end development.
Speaking on the collaboration, Mr. Robin Bhowmik, Chief Business Officer, Manipal Global said, “We launched this program at a time when India is riding the wave of the digital revolution and we have made great progress with reference to financial empowerment. Technology is shaping the world of finance and we are helping businesses employ the right talent to provide innovative financial services.”
This Full-stack development course is a 12-week (Online + Internship) program that includes an intensive capstone project. Commencing this month, the first batch will be trained in core concepts of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Microservices, Java, and Springboot. Students will learn to build production-ready solutions with core concepts on UI/UX.
With this program, Manipal Global, through its Skills Academy, aim to bridge the gap in tech knowledge that exists between what corporates need and the academic education today.
