Management & Entrepreneurship and Professional Skills Council (MEPSC), has been successfully incorporated as a Section – 8 (Not for Profit Company) under the Companies Act 2013 on 15th December 2015.
MEPSC is being promoted by the All India Management Association (AIMA), the apex body of the management profession in India as its sole promoter. As an emerging Sector Skills Council, MEPSC is committed to creating a technically and professionally competent workforce and industry professionals for both national and international markets.
A large percentage of Indian graduates are unemployable for lack of skills both technical and generic required by the employers. While most of the candidates get hired on the basis of their technical skills, they often get fired for lack of generic skills. It is the set of Generic/ Behavioural/ Soft/ Employability Skills that make a difference to the productivity of the individual.
Another large group is of unemployed youth, who cannot get employment for a variety of reasons needs to look at entrepreneurship as an option for gainful engagement.
Management & Entrepreneurship and Professional Skills Council (MEPSC) is primarily focused on these two major areas for skills development across sectors and industries.
Yet another purpose of MEPSC is to focus on job roles that are not sector/industry-specific and are functions that are common across sectors. Candidates trained and certified by MEPSC for these roles would be mobile and can move from one sector to another.
