With this deal, ICICI has made a strategic investment in a company which will serve the dual purpose of investment for gains in the future as well as helping fulfill its requirements for skilled employees. NIIT is a leader in India in terms of private computer training from basic to advance software training and its courses are recognized by industry leaders like Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Infosys (NYSE:INFY). This new company will focus on areas of technology based learning services and proficiency assessment and recruitment testing services. With demand for skilled manpower growing daily, this company has a good future as companies generally try to outsource their recruitment work and are more comfortable hiring a trained employee then an untrained one.
