In the modern age and time when the world is evolving at a rapid pace, some things are not coping up. Education, for instance, is a prime example where things are still the way they were about 50 years ago. Even though there are some new courses and academic programmes that are trying to bring that change, they are not enough.

While these courses are trying to change the scene, they are usually targeted at a specific segment of people who want to master a certain industry-oriented, job-friendly skill. In some cases, these individuals are already masters of some specific skill set and want to polish them further. Going ahead, that cannot be the way to change the education industry.

As businesses, technology, and innovation will evolve, they will require skilled individuals, who have a good understanding of analytics along with a creative bent of mind. The traditional education system and courses fail to inculcate such features in individuals. That’s why there’s a need for new-age, path-breaking courses that shake and shatter the status quo in the education sector and bring in a much-needed sense of relief for the industry.

While the list of institutes offering such courses is not long, some establishments are making a mark with their innovative approach to education and unique courses that are futuristic and are producing future-ready workforce. ICRI comes across as one such name that is offering such courses that are a mix of traditional roots, innovative outlook, future-focused and industry-oriented approach.

There has been a huge change in the job roles now that demands specific skill sets and the recent changes brought on global level, it is evident that future job roles will demand candidates with industry specific skill sets or competencies. Hence the best way to find the right job is to find the right industry specific professional course at undergrad or post graduate level.

On that note, here’s a list of new-age courses that will help you fast-track your career and overshadow others from day one.
