JAMMU, Aug 24: Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Jammu and Talentedge have signed an MoU to launch and offer multi-disciplinary online Executive Certification Programs focused on mid-career professionals who are aspiring to upskill themselves for career progression.

Commenting on the development, Prof B S Sahay, Director, IIM Jammu said, “this is a very progressive move for us and would expand our reach pan India. Online learning is gaining a lot of traction from all stakeholders and its growth in India. The Government of India has implemented various policies/initiatives to promote digital learning in the country. I believe online learning is a great value proposition for all Government and private institutions as a way to scale up and expand reach while learners get access to high quality education. This is our first step in this direction and we are very excited to embark on this journey with Talentedge.
