Diploma courses that can get you a job

In India, education has been divided into two distinct streams, both academic and vocational, for too long. Higher education never integrated the vocational programs and there was an almost puritanical attitude towards higher education on display. Fortunately, that attitude is changing. Many students now look forward to a course that would get them a job, and don’t worry too much if it’s a degree or not. Many don’t even bother to check whether or not it’s approved. NIIT / Aptech’s stunning success is a case in point. We’re profiling top diplomas in the same mould here. They provide skills that are marketable. Let see some of the Diploma courses that can get you a job
