Arizona State University, Infosys Partner to Develop Workforce


Arizona State University and Infosys are partnering to develop the workforce and create more jobs in Arizona, the school announced in a release.

The IT consulting company inaugurated its new Technology and Innovation Center in the SkySong ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center that will be moved to the permanent site in the Novus Innovation Corridor next year. It includes labs that produce prototypes in virtual reality, augmented reality and robotic technologies.

The partnership will work on creating nearly 1000 jobs and growing a workforce in Arizona.

“There was the academic ecosystem and availability of a large pool of talent that we will nurture and build through our hubs,” said Ravi Kumar, president of Infosys.“As we go through this journey we believe STEM+ skills are very important but we will actually be looking for skills in liberal arts and skills in design. We’ve already started hiring them.”

ASU President Michael Crow, Governor Doug Ducey, and Senator Martha McSally were among those who were present at the SkySong event.

They all lauded the role played by Infosys in generating thousands of jobs across the country.

“It’s our job in Washington, D.C., to set the conditions, with overall tax and regulation policy, so the economy can thrive and these partnerships can exist and so Gov. Ducey can recruit Infosys and work in partnership with Dr. Crow and ASU to provide a thousand jobs, and hopefully more over time, to Arizonans,” McSally said.

Infosys is also collaborating with InStride, a global learning services firm founded in partnership with ASU to allow its employees to earn degrees and credentials through the highest-quality universities.
