Since their launch in 2018 in Hyderabad and Bengaluru, these hybrid executive programs, with their innovative onsite/online format, have attracted industry professionals in large numbers and achieved a high completion rate.
The first batch of the all India hybrid Executive Programme will start from August 3 and the intake was 180, they informed.
The duration of course was 18 weeks and fees will be Rs two lakhs, they said and adding the program is led by collaborative faculty from Academia, Industry and Global Bluechip institutions .
The unique five-step pedagogy of Masterclass Lectures, Hands-on Labs, Guided Mentorship, Immersive Hackathons and Industry Workshops has differentiated these programs, they said.
The All India rollout is in response to an explosive demand for deep-tech expertise currently sweeping through knowledge professionals in all major technology hubs of the country.

Commenting on the occasion, TalentSprint CEO and Managing Director Dr Santanu Paul, said '' 2018 was the launch year for the cities Hyderabad and Bengaluru, and we used that opportunity to perfect these deep-tech programs. We successfully combined theory with practice, academic rigour with industry experience, onsite with online. The substantial popularity of these programs has encouraged us to launch this updated nationwide format.
The click and mortar model of select campus visits and ongoing online engagement makes it very convenient for busy tech professionals, irrespective of their location'', he added.
