Software major TCS said on Monday it would come out with a model of curriculum to impart a change in higher education syllabus to help educational institutions bring out quality students in line with the expectations of industry.
“The company has been working out the specifics of the model over the last 18 months under my guidance to impart a change in curriculum in an effort to revamp the higher education syllabus to enable educational institutions roll out quality students in line with expectations of industry,” N Chandrasekaran, MD and CEO of TCS said after receiving the award for the ‘most distinguished alumnus’ of NIT-Trichy.
Asked if the company was likely to put up a software or delivery facility in the city, he said, “TCS could consider putting up a delivery facility here as and when required.”
When students asked him if he had ever thought of a change of career with more companies looking to the talent he possesses, he said work challenges and freedom offered by the management was more important than monetary benefits.
He admitted having received several offers from MNCs but said he had never prepared an updated CV. “My dictum is never go after money but money will come behind you”.
Chandrasekharan, who never studied in a business school, said one should believe in his own talent and capability rather than be disappointed or dissatisfied when bosses puts them in ‘C’ Grade. Youngsters should take it in their stride and relentlessly work hard and prove that the bosses are always wrong, he said.
As part of future plans, he said the company was looking at Chinese and Japanese markets for growth.
On the sidelines of the event at NIT-Tiruchirappalli, he said TCS would soon embark into non-English speaking markets in Asia such as China and Japan for further growth.
The company has already tapped into most English speaking countries in Europe and the US, and non-English speaking locations like France, Germany and Latin America.
TCS currently has 2.9 lakh employees, 75,000 of whom are in Tamil Nadu.
Asked about the projection for this fiscal or the next fiscal, he said “with unattractive results in the last four months, I cannot make any speculation.”
