Finishing School

Finishing School

The world is marching towards globalization and the work culture is changing globally. It is that era where one cannot survive the cutthroat competition against talents from around the world with academics alone. From entrepreneurs to job holders, dynamism is the key that opens the plethora of opportunities and possibilities. Krupanidhi Group of Institutions was ahead of its time to realize this pattern of change and hence, gave life to one of its Flagship Initiatives called “Finishing School”.

The Finishing School Program is focused towards molding the student community at Krupanidhi Group of Institutions into the personalities that they aspire to become. It is a student centric program, driven by the target that they set for themselves. It has a diverse curriculum (termed as modules) that runs throughout the year bridging the gap between the education sector and the industry, hence, creating synergies between them, and ensuring that a higher pool of industry–ready students are available for recruiting. Campus to Corporate is, therefore, one of the prime but not the sole focus of the Finishing School program. The program also aims to instill into students the qualities that can redefine their personalities and life, thereby, helping them to become a more responsible and optimistic global citizen oozing confidence, positivity and empathy for all.
