Each year, India as a developing country produces a huge number of Students which includes both technical/non-technical.
At one time, there were only a handful of Government institutes but now with the number of Private institutes set up for various disciplines year on year indicates an education boom in India. Further the quality of education is also getting a boost.
The paradox is that, despite the increase in the number of colleges, the competition for acquiring fresh talent every year is so heated that it gives an impression that resources are really scarce. In reality, there is a plethora of career options for students of current years. The challenge is not the supply of talent but that of talent that meets the needs of the corporate world. In other words, the challenge is that of employability! It is not about having a good curriculum or good faculty. What then is the employability enigma? We conducted a survey of all the stakeholders on the employability front to understand the mystery. The results indicate that if the students augment their skills in a few specific areas desired by the industry, employability in the country can be significantly enhanced.
GoApti is one of our quantum innovation projects. Quantum innovation starts with figuring out where you want to be. It is about our aspirations and GoApti is one of our aspirational projects. GoApti aims at promoting systemic changes to current teaching-learning paradigms in education in collaboration with the academia.

Since its launch, GoApti has achieved tremendous recognition and momentum within the field of education. The initiative has now spread to number of colleges across country and benefiting number of students.
The essence of the innovative approach being used by GoApti to create a quantum improvement in the employability landscape is to help build institutions of excellence, which in turn leads to students who are industry ready when they step out of the portals of their institutions.
After having several rounds of discussion, conducting surveys and interacting with the employers and people from renowned institutes, we have found some key areas with regards to the skills required for getting a job in a good company or for getting into some top institutes for higher education. The motive of the effort is to analyse the important things that need to be taken care of to build a great career. Hence with the help of experienced professionals, professors and others best in the industry, we have designed a Programme that educates and inculcates in the students the proper approach towards a domain of their interest that helps them to progress to a better future.
