Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister of Delhi announced on Monday that the first academic session of the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University is expected to start next year. Dr Neharika Vohra, head of the CIIE at IIM Ahmedabad, has been appointed as the Vice-Chancellor by the government. The session would involve courses following the demands of the industry through formal dialogue with companies to be treated as customers.
Established under an act of the Delhi legislative assembly, the university has already started functioning on Monday. The university would lay the foundation for providing quality and quantity skills and training to students to pursue their business careers. It also strives to fill the qualitative gap in the education and business sector following the pandemic period.
With increasing demands of the job on account of the shutting down of shops, businesses, and industries, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government had built a single platform for job seekers and granters. In a similar effect, the university strives to cover the cases of unemployment by imparting adequate training to youths.
