Queensland University and India’s multinational IT company Infosys have collaborated in collaborative efforts towards training, education, and upskilling for Indian youth and professionals.
This collaboration catapulted during the CQUniversity’s visit to India in November 2022 with the help of Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ), and now takes the form of the first-of-its-kind cross-border academia-corporate partnership.
As a part of the partnership, an MoU was signed to initiate a re-skilling initiative building on the Springboard collaboration, wherein CQU shall offer course modules on economics, finance, and journalism with Indian universities. The content generated through these courses will be available free of charge to Indian nationals.
Alongside this, CQU will also offer its expertise in public health, nursing, and allied healthcare sectors, making training modules accessible to the Indian healthcare sector and other relevant stakeholders. This initiative will allow Infosys’ corporate partners to have access to training modules from CQU and upskill.
The partnership is coordinated by Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ), the Government of Queensland’s dedicated global business agency.
Abhinav Bhatia, Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner, South Asia at Trade and Investment Queensland said, “Corporate-academia partnership is the way forward to address the skill gap and train the workforce to develop new skills. This partnership will become a model for more such engagements between Indian corporates and Queensland (Australia) institutes.”Corporate, National, News
