Infosys, Harvard Business Publishing team up
Tech colossus In order to provide the next generation of Indians with crucial digital and life skills that are also freely available, Infosys has partnered with Harvard Business Publishing. This initiative will be carried out through Infosys Springboard, a platform that offers these skills.
As part of its ESG Vision 2030, Infosys wants to educate over 10 million people by 2025. Students have access to a selection of podcasts, videos, and articles from the Harvard Business Review through this project. The company announced in a statement that ten Harvard Manage Mentor courses will be offered on subjects like project management, change management, innovation, and creativity.
“We are thrilled to team up with Infosys on this important learning initiative that would drive employability among underserved students and youth, consistent with Harvard Business Publishing’s mission and ESG goals,” said Vinay Hebbar, Senior Vice President and Head of International Markets at Harvard Business Publishing. We are eager to assist in equipping upcoming generations with the abilities they need to achieve by giving them access to the most important ideas influencing leaders of today and tomorrow through Infosys.

Infosys introduced Springboard last year to provide corporate-level learning experiences on any device with more educator-learner interaction between high school and college students, working people, and professionals.
Through the platform, they are advancing their educational goals by providing courses in life skills and digital skills (such robotics and machine learning) (such as communication, time management, and career management). Over 2.5 million users have signed up for Springboard as of this writing.
