Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has initiated a new learning program for its trainee graduates in Japan. The TCS Japan Technology and Culture Academy is aiming to enhance technology and cultural knowledge and understanding between Indian and Japanese IT professionals.
The company has flagged off the first batch of 48 TCS Japan trainees who will proceed to India to undergo training for 6-8 weeks at various TCS locations. Apart from increasing their exposure to new technologies, the TCS Japan graduate trainees will learn about quality and other processes as well as business skills. This will be followed by on-the-job training on projects for six months.
In April this year, TCS and Mitsubishi Corp announced that they were merging their IT operations in Japan to create a new global scale player in the Japanese IT industry, with TCS having a 51% stake in the new venture called Tata Consultancy Services Japan.
