Oxford University Press, NSE joins forces for skill development of professionals and youth

Oxford University Press (OUP) and NSE Academy Limited have entered into a strategic partnership aimed at providing joint certificate courses focusing on high-demand professional skills for both professionals and students.

Through this collaboration, participants will have access to short courses offered by Oxford University Press, covering essential professional skills such as design thinking, negotiation, problem-solving, creative thinking, and storytelling. These courses will be delivered via the NSE Knowledge Hub, an innovative AI-powered learning experience platform.

“As a pioneer in higher education and academic publishing, OUP has played a pivotal role in furnishing top-tier content to learners across pivotal disciplines, including engineering, computer science, business, economics and beyond,” said OUP India Managing Director Sumanta Datta. Our alliance with NSE Academy stands poised to enrich skill seekers and learners, facilitating their engagement with contemporary courses tailored to meet the dynamic requisites of the job market. Moreover, this collaboration underscores our commitment to furthering the government’s Skill India initiative,” Datta added.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with OUP to enhance professional skills education and empower individuals with the knowledge they need to succeed in today’s dynamic workplace. Corporates will be able to deploy these future-ready skills courses to support the diverse learning and development needs of their workforce,” said NSE Academy CEO Abhilash Misra.

NSE Academy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Stock Exchange (NSE), will co-certify candidates upon completion of these short-duration, self-paced courses. This collaboration between OUP and NSE Academy marks a significant step towards bridging the gap between academia and industry, providing learners with practical skills essential for success in today’s competitive landscape.
