IGNOU to offer courses in warehousing, accounting

Wednesday August 10, 2011 08:12:01 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) will soon be offering programmes in warehousing, financial accounting and office management in a bid to provide more job-oriented courses, a university official said Wednesday.

The varsity's Centre for Corporate Education Training and Consultancy (CCETC) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the National Centre for Business Education's (NCBE) National Collateral Management Services Ltd. (NCMSL).

"The employment opportunities of the learners will increase with this MoU as its objective is to make a commerce student job ready," NCBE director Mukund S. Annigeri said.

"They have academic knowledge but not experience. We have structured the courses to provide on-the-job-training to them," he added.

A post-graduate diploma in warehousing, logistics and supply chain management, diploma in advanced financial accounting and taxation and a certificate course in office management and human resource will be offered under the MoU.

IGNOU's vice chancellor V.N. Rajasekharan Pillai said: "We want to certify and provide education training and capacity building so that the learners can get a certification."

"When we looked for people with required skills in the field of warehousing, logistics and supplying or even in the agriculture business, we didn't get them. A huge expertise in the skills sector is required to be bridged," said NCMSL managing director Sanjay Kaul.

"The warehousing and the office management course is another employment oriented skills development programme which aims to fill these lacunae," added Kaul.
