CHENNAI: Renault-Nissan will be looking at increasing its market share in India to 10% from its current levels of 6%.
“Renault-Nissan is a leading automotive provider in India and we welcome partnerships with institutes like LIBA as it strengthens our network of suppliers and employees,” said Krishnan Sundarrajan, managing director, Renault-Nissan Technology and Business Centre India (RNTBI).
LIBA and RNTBCI have come together to offer a certificate program in automotive quality management.
“The auto industry contributes nearly 7.1% to India’s GDP. It is a booming industry and at the cutting edge of technology, this programme will help students acquire the skillsets needed to work in the automotive industry and bring in global quality controls,” said Sundarrajan.
“This program will help students get familiar with practices like lean thinking, TQM, TPM, Six Sigma and Kaizen. With the Centre’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, there is bound to be an increase in job opportunities in India’s native auto industry,” said Fr P Christie, director, LIBA (Loyola Institute of Business Administration, Chennai).
The new course is 18-month in duration and will first admit 50 employees of auto majors, with LIBA offering the infrastructure and faculty resources to train them.
