Medhavi Skills University (Sikkim) – MSU – was established in June 2021 with the passage of the Medhavi Skills University, Sikkim Act 2021, in the Sikkim State Legislative Assembly on 29th June, 2021.
MSU will strive to bring convergence of the skilling ecosystem with the higher education tracks. MSU is the first of its kind pioneering university model where corporates/ industries will be the stakeholders and influencers in course curriculum design, programme delivery, practical skills training as well as for providing on-the-job apprenticeship and internships.
MSU’s vision is to emerge as a pioneer institution of skills-based education recognized by employers, nationally and internationally. It will provide opportunities for flexible learning, competency-based modular courses and credit accumulation/ transfer across educational streams for continuous learning.
MSU is sponsored by Medhavi Foundation which was founded in 2012 by a group of IIT Alumni. Medhavi Foundation is a skill development and education focused organisation and a National Skills Development Corporation partner impacting 1,00,000+ youths annually.
