Mar 30, 2010 – New Delhi- April 1, 2010: Indian Franchise Association (IFA) has taken an initiative of launching India’s first short term professional training courses on retail and franchising for MBA students and working executives. In India, 400,000 engineers graduated last year but only one in four of them was employable, rest could not make through due to lack of required technical skills, fluency in English, ability to work in a team or delivering basic oral presentations. Similarly the case with management education, hence the core objective of these training courses would be to make them employable. IFA has aggressive plans to promote short term professional training courses by establishing training centres in various parts of the country to educate students or professionals on the modalities of franchising and retail.

On certification courses introduction, Mr. Arvind Singhatiya, Head-Training and Content, Indian Franchise Association, said “It’s indeed a landmark education initiative by IFA for management students and working professionals, as this will benefit them with expert training vis-ŕ-vis seamless support for their placement in the burgeoning modern retail and franchise sector. We are in the process of tying up with B- schools, franchise and retail organizations to create a common podium for knowledge workers and seeking companies”.

Commenting on this initiative, Mr. Gaurav Marya, President, Franchise India, said “India’s knowledge based economy needs dynamic and analytical knowledge workers who can become the motivating force for innovation and growth in this country. Professional training is need of the hour and it would add immense value if induced with the regular professional courses”.

Commenting on the continuous demand in the market with an optimistic approach, Mr. Singhatiya further added, “Economy is bouncing back, this time in a big way; this will lead to an enormous demand of trained professionals and these training sessions are so tailored as to prepare students to meet industry needs and bridge the gap between education and practical training”.

These short terms courses are one of their kind and a first step in India taken by IFA towards youth for them to understand fresh business models and patterns adopted in the practical marketplace to excel in future for their growth.
