IIHT has designed & developed comprehensive Academic programs in IT & IMS. The largest private university in India, SMU has accredited IIHT’s 3 years IMS program and awards BSc IT IMS Degree for the students who successfully complete the program from IIHT Learning centers in India, China, and Africa.
Leveraging on the employability of students, Industry acceptance & recognition of this program, IIHT has enhanced the contents and raised the bar higher with a new program which is currently being validated by a University from the UK.

IIHT, being an education and services organization fits into this role of developing programs relevant to ICT requirements. Students across the world benefit from IIHT’s experience in delivering IT skills which in most of the cases across the world is found to be inadequate to readily deploy and manage the services as mandated by the employers/Global ITSM standards.
Unemployment-Issues and Challenges
After analyzing unemployment in India, Africa, and some Middle East countries, IIHT found that the most important reason for unemployment is the poor quality of graduates, who lack skills for employability in corporate companies and Enterprises in these countries. Only around 20% of graduates and 35% of engineering graduates are directly employable. It is also found that quality of education delivered in most institutions is very poor.
So, the main challenge today is not only making the graduates employable but also to ensure that there is a number of competent Industry ready Graduates for better productivity & innovation. Earlier, Fresh graduates who get hired by leading companies have to go through an Induction on Product oriented or Process oriented or focused in-house training programs. These programs are usually driven & guided by internal engineers, Managers & Product/process specialists and for over 4 to 6 months. These programs involve a lot of efforts, time & costs for any corporate. But these days due to the focus on higher profitability and high attrition, Corporate do not invest in time, Money or effort to train new recruits. They expect the candidates to be productive right from the first day.
So, most of the students passing out do not get adequate opportunities to get the required on-the-job training/industry exposure while they are studying. This limits their technical know-how and competency. This is why Finishing schools have become a necessity for the students across the world. While colleges provide an academic education, finishing schools add in terms of the required on job skills, diagnostic skills, and teach students what is not taught in their books- the practical knowledge required in I.T providing a well-planned framework that would encompass what the corporate need and accordingly train the students to be Industry ready.
There is a huge obsession with capacity creation in Colleges and Universities but the emphasis should be much more on quality. Due to various factors like paucity of resources, Corruption, non- availability of required technical infrastructure, lack of Qualified and experienced trainers, Governments in most countries are not giving priority to the development of Standard in education.
Instead of the present system of emphasis on Graduation by memorizing, which generates mostly paper certificates, education system requires a serious relook at the processes employed for creation and dissemination of knowledge in the institutions of higher learning and technological universities. The imperatives of new knowledge era are to be acknowledged and the challenge of the Globalised higher education should be addressed by creating a tech-savvy education system to develop job skills to all students.
‘Industry and Academia connect’ is critical to ensure curriculum and skills in line with requirements. Skill building is really very crucial to ensure employability, Academia to understand and make sure that knowledge + skills+ global professional skills = good jobs.
