Upskill with upGrad during the Lockdown: 5 Programs that you can access at a block price of ₹10,000

The COVID-19 outbreak is disrupting normal life across the globe. As most countries enforce nation-wide lockdowns to encourage social distancing, citizens are now home-bound, with a huge majority of individuals working from home. This has, however, left a lot of people uncertain because of extensive media coverage on the plunging world economy, pay cuts, and job losses. But if we are to look at the brighter side, there’s a way to make self-quarantining a period of positivity and productivity. The lockdown is granting working professionals the luxury of time that can be utilised to upskill themselves with courses that boost their functional expertise. In fact, at a time like this, it is also in the interest of organisations to upskill their current workforce instead of hiring new talent. This is why now is the best time for professionals to learn skills that they had been long planning to- a move that can make the eventual return to work smoother and also open doors to new opportunities in the future.

For those people who recognise the need for upskilling during the coronavirus induced lockdown, upGrad, has some good news! As one of India’s leading online education companies, upGrad is now giving its learners
an opportunity to start globally recognised MBA and Master’s programs at just ₹ 10,000! Apart from its highly acclaimed international courses like MBA (Global) from Deakin University, Global MBA from Liverpool Business School, and Master of Science in Data Science from Liverpool John Moores University, this initiative by upGrad also allows learners to take up its PG Program in Management and PG Diploma in Data Science with an initial commitment of just ₹ 10,000 . Learners will get a chance to experience upGrad’s industry-relevant programs till June 15, 2020. After the completion of this period, learners who wish to continue can pay the complete amount and continue learning. In a scenario where a learner thinks that it is not the right course, he/she can discontinue it and avail a certificate for the modules completed. In both cases, learners get to experience upGrad’s cutting edge curriculum through various case studies and live lectures from industry experts all over the world.This is the first time ever that a student is getting a chance to first experience the learning, and then deciding on the admission.
