upGrad consolidates its three India subsidiaries into one unit


Mumbai: upGrad has consolidated its three Indian subsidiaries—upGrad Campus, upGrad Jeet and upGrad KnowledgeHut—to create one parent company in India, at a time when the wider edtech sector of the country is witnessing significant churn.

The merged entity would cover the entire gamut of higher educational technology offerings, catering to college learners and working professionals, according to a statement Thursday.

The three subsidiaries are in fact acquisitions that were rebranded by upGrad.

“The merger of all the India entities is to strengthen the corporate structure and consolidate our position as a truly integrated edtech player and provide a strong foundation for our global strategy,” said Ronnie Screwvala, cofounder and chairman at upGrad. Our offices in the Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and the United States will continue to operate as independent subsidiaries.”

upGrad aims to achieve 7.5 million registered users by 2024 by partnering with over 1,298 universities, 3,110 corporates and expanding its network of faculty, mentors and experts to 11,078. At present, it has over 300 university partnerships with over two million registered users across 50 countries.
