CHIEF MENTOR'S MESSAGE

An Advanced Learning Initiative by Biocon Ltd

The evolving science in the Biotech sector is leading to a demand for high-skilled jobs in India. However, a wide gap currently exists between the quality of human capital available and the needs of the industry. Through Biocon Academy we aim to address this talent deficit by developing Industry ready human capital for the Biopharma sector and enable global competitiveness of the sector.

If India is to emerge as a Bioeconomy by 2025, we will need to ensure that we have the right quality of talent in the country. The Biotech graduates in India need to be trained effectively to make them industry ready where they can partake in the journey of transforming India through the power of biotech.

As the leading Biotech Company, Biocon is in a position to lead the way in providing the Biotech industry, the best professionals with the right orientation and training. By collaborating with leading academic institutions globally to bring world class training programs for biotech students in India, Biocon Academy aims to become the Center of Excellence for Advanced Learning in Biosciences that leads the way in transforming the industry and the community.

Biocon-KGI Certificate Program in Biosciences is our flagship program in collaboration with the Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, California, which is the premier American professional school for Bioscience education. Through this program we aim to offer a world-class learning opportunity in Biosciences for the Biotechnology and Engineering graduates which will enhance their proficiency and will enable them to pursue a rewarding career in the Biotech sector. Continuing our commitment to affordability and greater access, we are happy to extend a scholarship of 75% of the program fee to all the students who make it through the rigorous selection process.
