LAUNCHING CAREERS, TRANSFORMING LIVES

LAUNCHING CAREERS, TRANSFORMING LIVES

We are delighted to invite you to the world of PANA. We are taking forward the goodwill gained through our pre-university programme to the undergraduate degree arena.

The three years that you invest with us will be enjoyable and insightful while simultaneously being practical and experiential; preparing you for your active work life.

In a world where uncertainty in the workspace is ever-increasing, the assumed norm is that the more years you spend studying, the greater are your job prospects.That is simply not true.

Today, in the digital age, technologies are becoming obsolete faster than ever. The time and effort spent in studying the latest programming language may amount to nothing if it is replaced by the time you enter the job market. Even if it is still relevant, you are up against everybody else who also bet on it.

But there’s good news as well. The age of competition is also the age of opportunity. And that’s how we are different.

At Pana, we have eschewed quantity for quality. Through our experiential teaching methodologies, we ensure that academic learning, while important, always has a practical space where it will be applied. Through our focus on employability, we maintain a focus on core skills, even while we teach our students the latest technologies. And through our future-orientation, we fashion the mindset and the ability of our students to up-skill and to re-skill. And prepare for the soft skills required from the job market.

We have established exclusive partnerships with technology and industry leaders, included extensive real-world case studies, and extended significant industry exposure from day one of our programmes. We also assure extensive placement support to all our students.

We are also introducing a remarkable opportunity for our students. We are offering two distinctive degree programmes, BBA and BCA, in association with technology giant IBM. A true partnership, these fresh and innovative programmes have been created collaboratively. And they will be delivered by Pana mentors as well as IBM subject matter experts. The degrees will help students bridge the gap between academic requirements and the most important skills and emerging technologies in the job market.
