Indian higher education strata have made some commendable improvements over the past couple of decades. The unique teaching pedagogies introduced in various Indian higher education institutions has helped the country to produce capable professionals who are skilled enough to make a name for themselves in their respective industries. While many more colleges operating in the country have started to take actions to improve the quality of education provided by them, they are still lacking the edge when it comes to offering the best placement opportunities for their students. Acknowledging this gap, The Kingdom College was incepted with the primary motive to combine world class education while at the same time groom the personality of the students to become industry leaders. The institute believes that education plus personality is success and along with having a vision if the students are having the right mentality, they are going to be successful in life.

By creating an inclusive learning environment, the institute is able to nurture inspired learners who are capable of having a positive impact on the world.
Meeting the Industry Requirements
Bridging the gap between the academics and industry has been a tough task to complete for many educational institutions. By creating industry tie-ups and by aligning their curriculum to the requirements of the industry, The Kingdom College has been able to increase the employability of their students. "The first pain point of higher education especially in India is that that many of the students are completing their degree, but they're not able to get a job. More than half of the students who graduate are not able to get a job because they only focus on the academics and they are only studying for the knowledge. But in life, you need an attitude to push yourself to succeed. So, we offer our students skill-oriented training and help them to improve on their emotional quotient, and public speaking skills to make them good communicators. We also provide them industry exposure to help them understand how the industry works and what the industry expects from the employees. Along with industrial exposure at The Kingdom College we give students a chance to live with industrialists for one day every month which is unheard of. This helps them to get a unique insight into the inner workings of the industry and this valuable exposure is key in order to gain a solid understanding of what all are the skills that they need to acquire to not just survive but be successful in their respective professions.", speaks Deepak, Chairman, The Kingdom College. These constant interactions with the industry also give the students of The Kingdom College a competitive edge over the rest in the job market.
