It was in 1981 that NIIT committed itself to developing manpower for India's slowly awakening IT sector. In doing so, it not only pioneered a brand new industry—the IT training segment—it also fueled the fire of entrepreneurship in the country.
Within a few years of rapidly expanding its presence in the country, NIIT launched its most impressive innovation yet—a path-breaking franchisee-based business model, which earned it the epithet of "the McDonalds of the IT training world" by none other than the Far Eastern Economic Review. Using this model, NIIT transformed many young Indians from good families into ambitious entrepreneurs, focused on providing high quality IT training, efficiently and profitably.
It was this unique effort, its completely fresh approach to developing and growing the IT training market that enabled NIIT to achieve its vision of the early days and emerge as a leading global technology education brand. While it was NIIT that unveiled the dream, it was the company's Business Partners that took it forward and made it a reality.
This Web site is a special tribute to NIIT's extremely robust network of Business Partners, which has helped the company to spread its wings to over 35 nations and cross significant milestones over the years. Through this initiative, potential Business Partners can at a glance get all information about NIIT as far established and grow the relationship.
Fired by a new vision of globalization, where NIIT is now looking at helping other countries build IT talent, the company needs many more helping hands that will help it attain its billion dollar aspirations.
While NIIT's Business Partners remain its key strength, the company also imparts a special edge to its Partners, particularly in the highly competitive global IT training landscape. Entrepreneurs that join the NIIT family gain the advantage of the powerful NIIT brand, which accords them immediate recognition wherever they go. Companies also benefit from participating in the IT training sector, a rapidly expanding segment, which is expected to snowball into an even bigger business opportunity in the future.
In India alone, IT Industry will generate urban job employment (direct and indirect) for 30 million by 2020, according to premier industry association, NASSCOM. NIIT needs many more Business Partners to help it face the IT manpower challenge and redress the looming demand-supply gap in the area of skilled manpower.
Today, using a balanced mix of Instructor-led, Computer-based and Web-based training, NIIT is poised to enter hitherto unexplored markets where there is a demand for quality computer education. The company is on the lookout for partners that can share its vision and goals and deliver on its promise of "bringing people and computers together".
Individuals or Companies with fire in their bellies that want to make a difference by transforming lives are invited to join the NIIT umbrella.
