On March 28, 2007, Arena Animation, Asia’s leader in Animation and Multimedia education with a market share of 63%, achieved the impressive feat of having trained 2,00,000 students.
Arena, which started with 10 centres in 1996, grew to 130 centres in 2006 spanning 15 countries. With a modest beginning of enrolling 500 students in its first year of operation, Arena has trained over 2, 00,000 students in a decade. Arena placed over 3000 students in 2006 in animation and other allied multimedia roles in best and biggest organizations engaged in this business.
Mr. R. Krishnan, Global Head, Arena Multimedia is of the strong belief that “Employability is the capability of our students to move self-sufficiently within the job market and realize their potential through sustainable employment. The crux of employability is the level of knowledge, skills and attitudes of students, the way in which they use these assets and eventually present them to the prospective employers.”
Hence there should be an inclusion of activities & initiatives to empower the students with professional skills in addition to the de facto technical skills thereby making them more employable.
Arena Chandigarh in Sector 17 has completed 10 years of operation. The admissions to the exclusive high end Animation Course – Diploma in Animation Engineering (DAE) of Chandigarh centre are closing in May, 2007 end, so hurry!
