NIIT One World aims to synchronize NIIT’s cross domain training expertise with a proven training experience of three decades. Career aspirants wanting to augment their formal education with career-oriented training, will no longer need to go to various centres to seek professional advice to select programs mapped to their aptitude.  All they will need to do now is come to NIIT One World Centre and seek counseling across multiple domains and sectors. This will enable them to take a more informed decision on their career from various options available.
NIIT One World Centres will be equipped with state-of-the-art advanced labs and infrastructure that enable hands-on practice, collaborative learning and comprehensive job-readiness with a superior student experience.
Under IT training, the courses on offer are industry-endorsed programs for students seeking careers in IT – the flagship GNIIT program, the Edgeineers series of short-term Technology courses and Global Net Plus programs in the Networking domain.  Students can join programs offered for the Banking career by Institute of Finance, Banking & Insurance, a NIIT-ICICI Bank joint venture, in the same NIIT One World Centre. Also, students seeking to join the BPO industry can get trained in necessary skills by NIIT Institute of Process Excellence, an NIIT-Genpact Joint Venture. For working professionals, Executive Management Education programs in association with leading Management Institutes such as IIM Kolkata as well as the Executive MBA program from IGNOU will be available. 
Remarking on the launch of NIIT One World centre World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand said, “Winning and becoming a champion in one’s career starts with training that is appropriate and world class. Therefore making the right choice is all the more critical for today’s youth. NIIT has just made it convenient for career aspirants by bringing many options under one roof and facilitating counseling to enable them to take the right decision. In this context, I congratulate NIIT on the launch of the first NIIT One World centre at Coimbatore.”
Coimbatore is a major education hub with a well established and reputed list of industries in and around the city. Therefore, Coimbatore was chosen to launch the flagship centre for this new initiative.

This will enable the youth to evaluate various career options at one go, and choose the course most suitable to her or him.”
