Adamas University (under West Bengal Act IV of 2014) is pleased to introduce ‘Adamas University Industry Advisory Council’ that has been initiatedto create an industry-driven workforce in our nation. Through this Council, we aspire to review and enhance the present education delivery pattern and provide a boost to the employability-quotient of the students of Adamas University, making them completely industry-ready.


‘Industrious V 1.0’ is the first ever session and initiative by the University to involve industry stalwarts across different domains on one platform.We want to facilitate students to become career oriented through the expertise and knowledge that they gather from these stalwarts. A brainstorming and ideation session will undoubtedly provide valuable insight to devise strategies to build a workforce that is all set to take up a fitting career.


The current economic environment is highly competitive and therefore strives for sustainability. A quality human capital is one of the key factors behind this economic sustainability. Today’s business world needs people who can face the contemporary world challenges and direct the business towards excellence.

Each year over 3 million graduates and post-graduates are added to the Indian workforce. However, of these only 25 percent of technical graduates and 10-15 percent of other graduates are considered employable by the rapidly growing IT and ITES segments. The only way to avoid this gap is by building a skill-focused, industry-ready and job-ready workforce. And the time to start doing it is NOW!


Our Chairman's vision is to give students the opportunity to develop themselves as good managers and industry leaders who can give best through skills such as - communication skills, management skills, analytical skills, teamwork skills, leadership skills, managerial soft skills, etc. We want to inculcate in them an achievement oriented personalityand thus create an environment that will make thembecome ‘Industry — Enabled, Endorsed and Ready!’
