However, in 2017 aiming to inspire the students to grow into dynamic leaders and sensitive human beings, the trust laid the foundation stone of J.N.N Arts & Science Women's College.

Rendering an Edge over Others – J.N.N EDGE

As an institute for women, special emphasis is put on to empower each one of the students, enabling them to earn a respectable status in the society. For intensifying the employability quotient, J.N.N has designed the J.N.N EDGE program as a unique model that nurtures the broad development of the students and maps a synergistic relationship among intellectual, social, emotional, physical and creative potentials. It is mandatorily required for the students to engage, learn and experience J.N.N EDGE. The various modules of J.N.N EDGE are integrated into all the courses in every semester.

The Training & Placement Department in the campus, which organizes varied grooming activities and it works closely with all the Departments of the College in order to monitor students’ growth in every aspect.
Further, the unique six-phased soft-skill training module prepared by the Cell makes the students more confident to express their ideas and thoughts. "Job-ready from day one is becoming a norm that the recruiters look for today. As a young institute, we focus on all such elements, which can open the success road for our students," opines Jayachandran.

The exclusive soft-skill training is rendered by talented and experienced trainers, followed by a series of mock exercises, which greatly enhance the overall personalities of tomorrow's leaders.

Various Entrepreneurial Development Organizations such as Khadhi Village Industrial Commission are also welcomed in the campus to conduct awareness programmes on entrepreneurial activities.

At J.N.N, we are on a mission to create a learning universe for the future while nurturing the elements, values, beliefs, and insights that make us human," concludes Jayachandran.
