Rising IT spending driven by the need to ensure regulatory compliance and increasing complexities of business have led to the increase in demand for skilled professionals in the sector. To fill this demand, leading ERP solutions provider, Marg, is innovatively training youths through its industry acclaimed Marg Academies under its national skill development program. Marg Academies are spread over 21 states and 178 cities all over India. The academies, comprising of 500+ centers with well-trained teachers and excellent supporting infrastructure, successfully managed to place 2500 students in various industries utilizing its flagship inventory and accounting software solutions for businesses over the last 6 months.
Marg is due to place 1500 students in the next few months and has set for itself, an ambitious target of 1500 more placements by the end of 2018. Marg has already committed to doubling the number of its academic training centers to 1000 by the end of this year. It has a well established presence in a combination of rich states and states with great economic potential including Jammu & Kashmir, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Haryana, H.P, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Punjab, Rajasthan, Odisha , Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and upcoming cities like Indore, Bhopal and Nashik.
“Marg ERP provides highly trade-specific inventory and accounting solutions for the businessman instead of the accountant. Hence, our students finish their courses knowing everything they need to know to successfully run a business. There is a structural anomaly in our existing education model that does not place enough emphasis on vocational skills resulting in a gap between industry and unemployed youth. Many small businesses are restricted in capacity expansion by this gap. Because our major goal is to enhance ease of business in India, we will do everything we can to prepare our learners to become successful partners of the nation’s vibrant workforce”, said Sudhir Singh Marg ERP Ltd.
The duration of the training in Marg Academies is five months. A strong placement support system is already in place. Marg’s centers have well-qualified teaching staff and administrative personnel. There are, also, separate boarding and lodging facilities for boys and girls, proper uniforms, canteens with dining areas, recreational spaces, 24×7 CCTV security etc.
A 2016 study by ASSOCHAM revealed that 93% of its business graduates are not employable because of a lack of requisite skills needed to operate a business. Marg is an official member of the government’s Skill India and Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikash Yojana initiatives.
