Student Experience & Outcomes

Student Experience & Outcomes Overview

UPES has a proven track record of placements with students working at global firms or studying at international institutions. NEST is a unique initiative for alumni who live and work around the world. UPES Alumni Team proudly supports nearly 22,000 UPES alumni who live and work around the world. The team and alumni volunteers help manage more than 10 UPES Alumni Regional Chapters that meet periodically for various events. Alumni are also welcomed back to the campus to mentor existing students, and as special guests on advisory boards and other committees.

These initiatives, along with others, shape a learning environment that provides meaningful experiences for Gen Z learners. Our pursuit of excellence and commitment to creating path-breaking ideas in higher education is reflected in our new brand identity as a 'University of Tomorrow'. We aim to lead the way in transforming the education landscape and empowering students to become change bearers and boundary pushers.

Placements

The university boasts of a robust and successful career services department. Its partnerships with industries ensure that the students have adequate exposure and get rapidly absorbed into professional roles upon completion of their studies. At UPES, the focus is on developing a world-class pool of young and talented professionals who are ready to hit the ground running in their respective fields. The learning environment and practical hands-on approach help students forge ahead on their chosen career paths with a positive attitude, the right skill set and practical know-how. Because of the relevant and ‘real world’ education and ‘on-the-job’ exposure, the industry-readiness of UPES students has been one of the key differentiators.

Life at UPES

Social Internship - Srijan

UPES is one of the few universities in India that offer social internships in the first year to all students, irrespective of their field of study. While UPES has conducted social internships in the past, what makes Srijan unique is that it is a mandatory six-week-long social internship. It firmly puts the ‘social’ at the centre of learning for university students. It drives home the point that the core purpose of education is to better the lives of others and the community as a whole. Social internships introduce students to the society and its challenges and create value systems of service, giving, empathy and respect for those who are less fortunate.
