of the largest em­ploy­ment gen­er­a­tors in the coun­try. How­ever, there are huge gaps when it comes to avail­abil­ity of qual­ity man­power in this in­dus­try due to the lack of for­mal ed­u­ca­tion and over­all in­dus­try per­cep­tion. Saf­ex­press in­tends to fill th­ese gaps by way of pro­vid­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, which has a right bal­ance of the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal train­ing in sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics,” she ex­plained. Jain in­formed that Safe­d­u­cate has in­tro­duced a two year MBA course with spe­cial­i­sa­tion in SCM & Lo­gis­tics at ITM Univer­sity, Gwalior. The first year of the course would in­volve gen­eral MBA ed­u­ca­tion. In the sec­ond year, Safe­d­u­cate will be ed­u­cat­ing the stu­dents on core con­cepts and prac­tices of SCM & Lo­gis­tics. “We would also be cov­er­ing Op­er­a­tional, Strate­gic and Im­ple­men­ta­tion is­sues in SCM, Sup­ply Chain Per­for­mance Met­rics & Mod­el­ling, Lo­gis­tics Man­age­ment and re­cent trends in SCM. This class­room train­ing will be fol­lowed by a six month in­dus­try in­tern­ship in var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions. This in­tern­ship will be di­vided into four stints of 45 days each and is meant to pro­vide ex­ten­sive on­ground train­ing in sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics to the stu­dents,” she said. She also shared that Safe­d­u­cate would in­tro­duce the spe­cialised MBA cour­ses in more ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tutes across In­dia.
