The addition of the online vertical has been marked by the launch of four new Prodegree™ courses, and underlines the organization's vision of making high-quality learning, training, and skill development more accessible and beneficial to professionals and students.
Imarticus will soon introduce six more programs to its portfolio in the online and offline segments and enhance its expertise in both B2B and B2C categories with online training and skill development programs.
Imarticus Learning is the only institute that incorporates a variety of delivery methodologies such as classroom-based, online, and combined, managed by a fully integrated state-of-the-art learning management and governance system. Over the past four years, Imarticus Learning has established itself as one of the top facilitators of training in financial services and analytics to professionals through its Certification, Prodegree™ and Postgraduate programs.
The company has trained 18,000+ individuals globally since its inception.

Speaking on the announcement, Nikhil Barshikar founder and managing director, Imarticus Learning said, "Edtech firms are helping to enhance the skills of professionals in the country by bridging the gap between academics and industry requirements. With convenient, flexible and personalized learning options, Imarticus Learning has helped several young professionals and students acquire industry-relevant skills and improve their employability. With the introduction of new courses, we are extending our expertise into the online learning domain and leveraging the developments in the education sector to provide accessible and highly relevant learning options."
Imarticus Learning raised one million dollars in a funding round in 2016 from multiple investors, including VC fund Blinc Advisors. Capitalizing on the rising demand for high-quality and credible edtech services, the company's expansion into online education represents a revenue potential of over INR 100 crore, which will further strengthen its position as a domain leader in the Indian education sector. Apart from increasing its course portfolio to a total of 25 certifications, Imarticus plans to expand its presence to 14 offline centers across the country. The organization also envisions expansion in emerging markets across Southeast Asia and the Middle-East with online/offline B2C and B2B programs.
