Hyderabad: The Telangana State Board of Technical Education and Training (SBTET) and the Indian School of Business (ISB) inked an MoU on Friday to strengthen the employability skills of undergraduate students.

According to the MoU, ISB will develop and deliver the curriculum of four programmes – business literacy programme, behavioural skills programme, digital literacy programme, and entrepreneurial literacy programme – in ISB's Learning Management System (LMS) platform as asynchronous recorded sessions by expert faculty from ISB. SBTET will then deploy these programmes for undergraduate students.

On the successful completion of the course, ISB and SBTET will jointly award certificates to the participants.

The MoU was signed by Professor Deepa Mani, deputy dean of ISB, and Dr. C. Srinath, secretary of SBTET, in the presence of IT and industry minister K.T Rama Rao, college and technical education commissioner Navin Mittal, and Professor Madan Pillutla of ISB. Jayesh Ranjan, the principal secretary of industries and IT, was also present at the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Mittal said the collaboration with ISB will give the students of Telangana an opportunity to become more employable and future-ready.

Prof. Madan Pillutla said the MoU will go a long way in making Telangana a centre of skilled force.

Prof. Deepa Mani added, "The need of the hour is to stay ahead of the curve and explore new and uncharted terrains. This can be achieved by taking advantage of the latest and emerging courses and modules offered by the government. We are sure the MoU will enable young minds to think out-of-the-box and in the process design products and approaches which are relevant and realistic."
