MUMBAI: Edtech and skilling major upGrad on Monday announced a steady growth in its annual placements and transitions with a record of 55, 000 jobs in FY24.

Freshers, first-time job seekers, mid-career and senior professionals undergo weeks of extensive training/learning to acquire hands-on skills for real-time benefits on jobs, ” said Mayank Kumar, Co-founder & MD, upGrad.

“Through our in-house capabilities, years of tech investments, robust university roster, and strategic business mergers, we have developed a master pedagogy that is now scalable and ready to be replicated across new geographies, ” he added.

In FY24, upGrad's Enterprise arm also upskilled and trained nearly 600, 000 corporate professionals.

The portfolio served over 1, 000 mid and large-sized clients in a year including Fortune 500 companies, further consolidating its position as India's largest integrated learning and skilling major, the company said.
