Boom in the global economy has made us realize that despite high quality technical education and training that is provided at colleges, most of graduates fall short of the expectations of prospective employers. When it comes to essential technical skills, personal interaction, interviews and discussions, many fresh graduates lack practical knowledge and exposure. If we look at the expanding industry verticals like IT, ITES, Banking and Insurance services,
Retail and management, industries that demand a different set of soft skills and talent rather than traditional, the requirement of Finishing Schools become imminent. The existing gap between industrial practice and knowledge among professionals is bridged by finishing schools. GradFirst®, provides specialized skill-enhancement training to students using cutting-edge technologies and makes them industry ready.

In step with the global age:

With the advancement of technology and immense globalization, there is a sudden spurt of demand for industry specific skills. The technical education and training that is provided at colleges and universities is unable to meet this demand.

This has led to the requirement of establishing Finishing Schools for industry specific skill training to graduates.
