Thursday December 19, 2013 12:19 PM, IANS

Indian IT bellwether Wipro Ltd unveiled an online programme to train undergraduate students in finance and accounts to enhance their job skills in both subjects, the company said Wednesday.

"We have started imparting skills online to final year students of commerce and business administration in select degree colleges across Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad to enhance their employability in finance and accounting," Wipro back office global head Subhasish Biswas said in a statement here.

The online course has been designed in two parts - basics of finance and accounting and corporate readiness training.

Successful students will be certified after assessing their skills for a placement in the global software major.

The 24-hour programme consists of modules, which give students flexibility to work over two months along with their graduation course.

The course modules are in a video-based PowerPoint presentation format to understand the concepts.

"As we need readily employable workforce, our expertise in training delivery in the services sector enabled us to create a platform for graduating students to pursue a rewarding career in finance and accounts," Biswas said.

Wipro's business process outsourcing (BPO) division has partnered with Firstnaukri.com to promote the initiative and allow the job portal to host the online module and distribute it to colleges with which it has tie-up across the country.

"Indian businesses are struggling to recruit youth with right technical and soft skill sets. It is becoming imperative for companies to focus on skill development and employability of youth entering workforce," Firstnaukri.com business head Deepali Singh said in the statement.
