betterU continues to support India by working together with leading educators from around the world, offering top quality education to advance the skills of the population. “Skilling up millions of people requires a collective collaborative approach that focuses on bringing together all relevant educational services and content partners onto one delivery system.

Digital India has also led to an increasing focus on delivering compelling digital experiences, thus adding to the demand for skilled professionals on leading technologies by companies like Adobe. betterU’s programs on Adobe Experience Manager and Adobe Analytics will enable skills development towards the Digital India initiative, and drive wider reach of Adobe’s educational programs across industries such as health, education, IT, agriculture, banking and more,” said Kulmeet Bawa, Managing Director – Adobe South Asia.
