With new technologies being invented each passing day, it is predicted that 50% of the jobs carried out in the world at present can be automated by 2030. The ideas such as, cars driving themselves, planes flying on their own, X-ray reports being read by machines, algorithms answering customer inquiries, money going digital, branchless banking, teacherless classrooms are all going to be a reality soon.

Should one panic?

Certainly not.  If one starts preparing herself for that day from today. 

The best preparation would be by equipping oneself with skills sets that provide them with opportunities in a world ruled by machines.  We have lived in times where we felt, White Collar jobs are the best but we may live in the times, where we crave to have skills that will fetch us Yellow Collar jobs.  Yellow collar jobs are those which cannot be aped by any machine or technology. To be a Yellow Collar individual the preparation should begin with improving one’s skill set. 

Understanding the need of the hour, MICA, since its inception has been stressing on skills development programs.  It trains students on various skills that come in handy in all stages of life. MIST – MICA Integrated Skills Training programme – at MICA extends Current Business Awareness and Analysis sessions, Case study sessions, book reading sessions, Communication, soft skills, personality development programs, and placement training workshops as mandatory sessions. These are general training for all.

Under the professional training, which is optional for students to take up, MIST offers Tally certification, CA / CS foundation exam coaching, Multimedia, and Computer proficiency training Entrepreneurship skills, Digital Marketing training and the likes.

MIST offers a few innovative programs like SER – Self Exploration and Regulation for the teenage minds.  Students get an opportunity to meet industry experts, visit production units, and learn more about multi-cultures across the world from domestic and international tours.  Through the associations with few NGOs, student volunteers can give back to society.  MICAns get trained for researching skills, academic research papers; articles are published in reputed journals and websites.

By and large MIST 1.1 fills the gap that is generally found in the formal education.

MIST is delivered by academicians, corporates and psychologists.

MIST is not extra; MIST the way forward…

MIST is not theory; MIST is real…

MIST is not an add-on;  MIST is an integral part…

MIST is not fancy; MIST is the mainstay…
