U.S. based Campus Management Corporation (CMC), a provider of educational technology solutions is planning to work with State governments as part of skilling initiatives in the country. Its pact with the government of Maharashtra is the latest and follows its work with the Centre to help fulfil the government’s vision of Make in India, Skill India and Digital India.

In India, CMC works with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and helps users of its platform meet their skilling and up-skilling goals that are in line with the vision of the country.

“CMC’s Skill Development Management System provides a comprehensive solution to address the requirements of NSDC,” said Jim Milton, CEO, CMC.

In India, CMC is located in Bangalore and employs more than 450 staff, accounting for more than 50% of its global workforce.

While half of India’s population is below age 26, the rising demand for jobs is not being met. The annual demand for new jobs in India is estimated at 12-15 million, leaving a shortage of unfulfilled jobs each year, he said.
