Over the past few years a skill gap has emerged between what a college teaches and what the industry demands. Students are leaving campuses with memories, knowledge and a degree. But once out in the real world, their learnings fall short.
All this because having taken the fees, any institute loses the motivation to get their students placed in a profession which matches their proficiency. Leading to unemployment and hiring issues.
Two serial entrepreneurs decided to fix this problem with the foundation of Sunstone Eduversity. Where everything is based on one simple principle, accountability.
Instead of the student investing in us, we invest in the student. Directing all our infrastructure and resources towards one single outcome – getting them placed in a job they will like and grow in.
Our changemakers are made by being subject to the biggest change in the higher education system till date. A curriculum that isn’t repeated year after year, but developed and updated by the industry itself. A tech – first approach that never lets anything come in the way of learning and is helping continue or classes at 100% capacity during these times. It is bringing students and mentors closer than ever before.
And finally, our Pay After Placement Model, which takes away any stress a student might face in terms of cost covering and makes their placement a priority for the faculty as well.
After graduating from Sunstone Eduversity you don’t just walk out with a degree. You walk out as an asset always coveted by the industry.
