The cutting-edge Short Courses blend together the knowledge from leading Industry Experts and Academics to remove the supply side bottlenecks of the job market. As shown in a recent study, a massive 69% of companies had reported talent shortages during their recruitment. The study attributed the workforce’s inability to upskill with the rapidly evolving industries as the primary reason. With Short Courses, UniAthena can be said to have taken the right step in addressing this core industrial labour force challenge. Concurrently, it’s no lesser for learners and professionals than a Doctor who prescribes just the right dosage of medicines. Tailor-made, market-ready, self-paced, online courses that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

The new Short Courses platform will act as the “take-off board” for learners irrespective of their structural hierarchy. Depending on the learner’s current domain exposure and organizational position, the courses have been classified into 6 fundamental sections, from Basics to MBA Essentials. It comes as a great relief to professionals who couldn’t pursue academic degrees in the rush to get a job. One can simply opt for a Diploma Certification to finish the unfinished. Thus, the flexibility to choose between courses helps learners avail a customized module that is made just for their needs. Courses are delivered as pre-recorded video lectures that can be completed even in one sitting of less than 4 hours and come along with e-Notes and Graded Assessment Quizzes.
