Industry Partner

SVSU conducts this course in collaboration with American company IQVIA (formerly Quintiles and IMS Health), its industry partner, under its campus-industry model which draws its inspiration from the German Dual Education model. The system produces highly skilled, ready-to-work employees for the industry. In this model industry’s participation in training is far greater than traditional academic and vocational skilling initiatives and programmes. Students work and study at the industrial premises and industry-simulated university campuses for the entire duration of training. University’s dual education model enables students to “earn while learn” and students are paid monthly stipend for the periods involving on-the-job training at industry partner’s location.

QVIA is an American company that provides information, services and technology for the healthcare industry. It is the largest vendor of US physician prescribing data. The company came into existence in 1954 and was founded by Bill Frohlich and David Dubow. IQVIA is best known for its collection of healthcare information spanning sales, re-identified prescription data, medical claims, electronic medical records and social media.

IQVIA’s products and services are used to develop commercialisation plans and portfolio to select patient and physician population for specific therapies and to measure the effectiveness of pharmaceutical marketing and sales resources. The firm uses its own data to produce syndicated reports such as market forecast and intelligence.

IQVIA-India has its offices in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chennai, New Delhi and Gurugram.

OJT, Programme Model and Pedagogy:

SVSU has built a strong partnership with the Industry to facilitate students’ employability and entrepreneurship through the On-the-Job Training (OJT). The university has designed, developed and deployed Industry Integrated Dual Education Model (IIDEM) that facilitates “Earn-while-Learn” and provides the students with the opportunity to enhance their qualification with flexibility of entry and exit into a program. HVSU has conceptualised the IIDEM program, which is designed in such a manner where 60 percent of the credits are earned while working on the OJT or on National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS), wherever applicable. The students shall also earn stipend for that period. The classroom training shall be imparted by the SVSU faculty and other industry experts. The curriculum is based on theoretical and conceptual training as well as OJT. Practical and workshop experience are the key components of the overall training methodology. Forty percent of the credits shall come from the theoretical and conceptual training. The entire pedagogy is designed to develop application-based learning that will make students job-ready by earning industry work experience and learning the technical concepts hands-on.
