Bengaluru, November 16

Manipal Global, a leading international provider of quality business and marketing solutions in higher education has joined hands with Salesforce, the global leader in CRM, to launch a skills initiative to build a talent pool of Trailhead certified professionals with a B2C (Business-to- Consumer) and B2A (Business-to-Academia) model. Through this initiative, Manipal Global will build a talent pool of Salesforce Trailhead qualified professionals by leveraging its best practices focused on the future needs of higher education.

Recent research by International Data Corporation (IDC) cites that the Salesforce ecosystem will create 13,28,200 jobs in India by 2026. 24% of new jobs created in India in the Salesforce customer base this year leverage significant digital skills — such as using automation tools , the Internet of Things ( IoT), and other complex applications. The programs offered are designed to meet the significant increase in demand for trained professionals.

Speaking on the occasion TV Mohandas Pai, Chairman, Manipal Global Education Services, said, “This collaboration is a step towards closing the gap between the current educational reality and the business need, by training young learners in advanced technology skills. With the post pandemic world driving digital adoption on a massive scale, the world needs a huge pool of future ready, highly skilled digital savvy employees who can work on leading edge technology platforms. With this collaboration, MAGE and Salesforce are uniquely positioned to meet the demand for future ready digital skills”

Arundhati Bhattacharya, CEO & Chairperson, Salesforce India, said, “COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated our planet’s gradual, decade-long migration to digital. Seismic digital already-first shifts have resulted in the widening of an large skills gap. A commitment to bridging the widening gap is fundamental to our world’s future success and prosperity. We are excited to be collaborating with Manipal Global Education in our endeavor to democratize digital skills, nurturing future-ready individuals and bridging the skills gap.”

The program will be delivered in an online mode. Learning will be hands-on, with an emphasis on mastering the skills, rather than just learning them. Upon successful completion of the programme, candidates will be ready to appear for the Salesforce Certified Administrator & Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I product certification exams.
