~ Conceptualized and shot in-house, the film is a musical take on the rapidly changing job dynamics of the last 30 years ~

Mumbai, August 17th, 2023: In a dynamic move aimed at fostering career growth, upGrad, Asia’s largest integrated learning skilling and workforce development company has unveiled its latest brand campaign – a musical and captivating take designed to inspire Indian professionals to upskill in time and grab the opportunity presented by the adoption of GenAI across industries. The core message of the film aligns with upGrad’s mission, underscoring the significance of forward-looking perspectives and individual empowerment for achieving career success. Ranging from Business Basics, Data Science, Marketing, Machine Learning & Technology, the skilling giant, currently, offers 25+ self-paced programs in GenAI across free and paid versions to help professionals stay ahead of the curve.

The campaign’s centerpiece is a thought-provoking narrative featuring the ‘Bus of Opportunity’ with a lively conductor, making stops at three pivotal eras of innovation. It begins with the Dot-com age, where passengers embody iconic startup founders and game-changers and transitions to the evolution of E-commerce, before culminating in the GenAI era.

Conceptualized by the in-house Brand Marketing team and directed by Shashwat Gandhi of Boathouse Media, the film brilliantly captures the evolution of industrial eras over the past 30 years and put emphasis on the critical need to adapt, welcome change, and seize fresh opportunities as technology continues to reshape industries, empowering Generation AI for the jobs of tomorrow. The striking jingle further advocates for constant upskilling to effectively tackle industrial disruptions and highlight India’s potential of gaining global supremacy within the talent ecosystem.

“We operate in times when a cliché phrase ‘past performance is no guarantee of future results’ holds the most merit,” said Ankit Khirwal, Head of Marketing, upGrad.

“Unlike yesteryears, today we see tech disruptions happening almost every 1 or 2 years which inevitably makes Lifelong learning critical more than ever. The campaign draws insights from an independent study we performed to understand the upskilling trends and spotlights the urgency to upskill in times when AI is disrupting almost every industry. Human resources, medical practitioners, content writers, or even bankers are required to learn and interact with AI as much as any other tech professional. Therefore, we have come up with a catchy yet sincere request to encourage professionals to invest in their learning and grab opportunities for tangible career growth. The film resonates with the aspirations and ambitions of our learners and millions of others who want to grab the bus of opportunity, but have parked it due to certain underlying societal apprehensions.”

The ad film will be unveiled through a multi-channel campaign, including digital platforms, social media, and targeted events, ensuring that the message reaches professionals across diverse sectors and regions. By showcasing the transformative impact of Generative AI, upGrad aims to catalyze a paradigm shift in the way Indian professionals approach their career journeys.
