  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

NEW DELHI, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Great Learning is a technology enabled online and blended learning platform to help working professionals develop new competencies to achieve career growth.

Great Learning believes that today's knowledge workers will need to upgrade their knowledge and competencies at regular intervals to be able to stay relevant and achieve career growth. By offering high quality, relevant and impactful learning experiences to India's knowledge professionals, Great Learning aspires to be their life-long learning partner of choice.

The platform has been founded by Mr. Mohan Lakhamraju, Vice-Chairman & CEO - Great Lakes Institute of Management along with Mr. Hari Krishnan Nair, who was Director, Career Services at Great Lakes. Prior to Great Lakes, Mr. Mohan was an India-focused Private Equity investor for 5 years, first at Draper Fisher Jurvetson in Silicon Valley and then at Tiger Global where he set up and lead their India Operations. Mr. Nair is a repeat entrepreneur having founded and successfully sold a loyalty services platform called iLabs.

Sharing his vision for Great Learning, Mr. Mohan Lakhamraju said, "The demands on businesses today are making them seek readily productive talent that can contribute from day one. Therefore, professionals who can develop and demonstrate in-demand competencies are highly sought after. Great Learning helps early to mid-career professionals gain the knowledge and skills they need to achieve career transitions and growth through high quality and conveniently accessible blended learning programs."

He further added, "There are several online self-learning platforms today like Coursera, edX, Udacity offer high quality learning content. However, their courses have low completion rates since most people need learning support beyond just content. Recognizing this, Great Learning provides assisted learning, where learners are provided mentorship and guidance by a combination of academic faculty and industry mentors, which ensures 90%+ completion rates and impactful outcomes. We refer to this assisted learning as 'Empowered Learning'".

Mr. Hari Krishnan Nair, Co-Founder, Great Learning, added, "The ultimate test of any learning is the impact it creates for the learner. We at Great Learning are very proud to see that over 2/3rds of our learners have accomplished career transitions within 6 months of program completion."

Great Learning's current programs are focused on managerial and business-oriented competencies and are offered in academic collaboration with Great Lakes Institute of Management, one of India's leading business schools. The programs are designed with inputs from both the world class faculty at Great Lakes as well as highly experienced industry experts to ensure high quality and practically relevant learning outcomes to learners across India and abroad. These blended learning programs are designed to serve as substitutes for traditional post graduate programs. Great Learning programs are also jointly certified by Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Chicago, one of the top 10 engineering colleges in the US as per USA Today.

Great Learning's current offerings include an executive MBA-equivalent program called PGP-Ex, a Post Graduate Program in Business Analytics (PGPBABI), a certificate program in Business Analytics (BACP), a certificate program in Financial and Risk Analytics. The PGP-Ex enables learners to customize it to suit their unique aspirations and specialize in popular and relevant competencies such as product management, digital marketing, entrepreneurship, supply chain management, etc. The PGPBABI program is consistently ranked among the top 1-2 analytics programs in India by leading industry magazines.
