The executive-friendly eMasters degree programs do not require a GATE score for applying and can be pursued while being already employed. The flexibility of completion between 1-3 years is an added bonus of these unique programs.

India requires a highly skilled workforce in all these fields to meet this upcoming talent gap. IIT Kanpur has designed these programs keeping such requirement in mind. The response to these programs has been phenomenal from the inaugural cohorts, demonstrating the high level of interest among professionals in pursuing further education in these areas.

Prof. Abhay Karandikar, Director, IIT Kanpur, says, “The rapid growth of India’s economy and the increasing demand for skilled professionals in various industries has created a talent gap that needs to be addressed. IIT Kanpur’s eMasters degree programs have witnessed terrific participation from working professionals looking to upskill themselves. The first batches of the programs completed the academic requirements within a year itself. These relatively new programs in Economics and Finance, Data Science and Business Analytics, Communication Systems, and Sustainable Construction Practices are designed to make the workforce agile and future-ready.”

The industry relevant programs offer the scope of self-paced learning, coupled with a high-impact format with weekend-only live interactive classes. The 60-credit, 12-module industry-focused real-world curricula are taught by world-class faculty and researchers from IIT Kanpur. These also offer a credits transfer facility where a waiver of up to 60 credits can be transferred for higher education (MTech/PhD) at IIT Kanpur. Participants of the program get access to the IIT Kanpur placement cell, incubation cell, and alumni network, making it a rich career advancement and networking experience. As a part of the immersive learning experience, participants get to visit the IIT Kanpur campus to meet the eminent faculty and network with experienced professionals.

Professionals opting for these programs gain multidimensional expertise to overcome challenges required to shape the future of the country.
