Our model is unique, and we welcome the diversity of our colleagues both in India and globally to achieve our long-term mission of changing the employability landscape and also emerge as an Edtech leader from India for the world. This consolidation also gets us financially ready for a future listing as we put costs behind us between the last and this year to focus on a high growth and high profitability model while creating impact and having the largest alumni base in Higher Education," said Mayank Kumar, Co-founder & MD, upGrad.
