Why Work-Integrated Skill-Based Higher Education (WISE) Is The Need Of The Hour.


When you think about higher education, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Probably a classroom full of students. A professor on the whiteboard delivering lectures. Maybe with some added practical sessions in laboratories. Coupled with occasional industry visits, capstone projects, and internships. This is the common scenario you mostly come across in the current higher education system. But what if this system is becoming obsolete? What if the traditional pedagogies and curriculums are becoming a thing of the past? You might not realize this, but from an industry point of view, the current higher education system needs a complete reshuffle. Industry players have been consistently observing how fresh graduates are turning out to be underskilled for real-world occupations under this traditional higher education system. Thus, policymakers have felt the requirement for a new-age transformational higher education system that should be enforced with immediate effect.

Enters Work-Integrated Skill-Based Higher Education (WISE)

Did you know, the Government Of India (GOI) has already implemented a new NEP (National Education Policy) in the year of 2020? The policy has been specifically crafted to make higher education more learner-centric, flexible, and innovative, in order to tackle modern-day industry-level changes and challenges. It is based on this reformatory framework that forward-looking higher education institutes like Medhavi Skills University (MSU) has come up with Work-Integrated Skill-based Higher Education (WISE) system. The aim is to simultaneously equip students with relevant industry experience in addition to their full-time degree/diploma/certificate/etc. Suppose you are a student at MSU, and you are pursuing a WISE graduate degree program in Hotel Management which is of three years duration. So by the end of your academic tenure, you will have Apprenticeship/OJT (On-Job-Training) experience in your respective industry along with your graduation degree. The industry experience has stipend payment systems that are specifically designed to incentivize your work. Thus you will no longer be a “Fresher” out of college, but a qualified graduate with relevant industry experience in your respective domain. This will not only boost your employability quotient but also prepare you as a new age competent professional who is acclimatized to dynamic workplace cultures and payment landscapes.

Benefits Of WISE System

The WISE system is being popularized by the government, industries, and academia across the country. Policymakers, teachers, academics, researchers, industry players, entrepreneurs, and businesses are already witnessing the proven benefits of WISE. The following are some of them:

  1. It bridges the skill gap between industry and academia by rendering relevant competencies and industry experience through Apprenticeships/OJTs.
  2. Boosts student morale by incentivizing their work with monthly stipends which in turn can be used to pay off college fees.
  3. Prepares students for a technology-driven future work ecosystem by acclimatizing them to the latest innovations being implemented across industries.
  4. Provides an ideal landscape for innovating student assessment systems by evaluating them in real-time as they perform in the industry based on what they learn on their campuses.
  5. Eliminates redundancies by saving time for students as they work in industries along with pursuing their full-time academic programs in colleges.
The Way Ahead

Now that you have learned about the importance of WISE system and how crucial role it can play in an economy, you can clearly see the potential it holds for radically transforming the way we work, learn, and earn. The modern-day technology-driven era is witnessing a gradual transformation from traditional classroom-based pedagogies to a more agile and innovative learning ecosystem where work and education are treated as a holistic continuum for developing the required skills and competencies for all.
