About Edvancer

Edvancer, an IIM-IIT alumni venture set up by Mr. Aatash Shah and Mr. Lalit Sachan in 2013. In 2021, it was acquired by GUS Global Services Pvt. Ltd. and is now part of Global University Systems (GUS), an international network of higher-education institutions, brought together by a shared passion of providing industry-driven global education which is accessible and affordable. Edvancer's goals are:
  1. Provide the best career oriented education possible: Large parts of the global education system is not able to keep pace with the changing demands in industry and technology. It produces graduates but without the skills necessary to contribute in the workplace without being trained further. Edvancer aims to make an intervention in the education system and evolve a new paradigm of learning which is focused on the needs of the industry and the aspirants. We will do this by providing practical, hands-on, short-term certificate courses which will be created and delivered by industry experts and will fill the gap between industry needs and university output.
  2. Provide anytime, anywhere learning: We strongly believe that when people want to learn they should get access to the learning when they want, where they want and not wait for academic years or batches to start or have to uproot themselves and travel. Hence we have leveraged the power of technology to provide access to our courses online, 24x7x365, wherever the learners are and on any device.
  3. Provide a high ROI for the student: We do not believe in making our students learn everything under the sun in their domain if they are unlikely to implement those skills in their career for a long time. For example freshers starting a career in analytics will not need to know or use advanced techniques in the initial years of their career. Spending a year and thousands of dollars on a comprehensive course would be a waste of time and money for them and will also not improve their salaries significantly. We believe that providing the students course options specific to the needs of their immediate career goals will go a long way in keeping their costs and time commitments low, enabling a much higher return on investment(ROI) for them. In future as their career advances they can take up higher level courses thus ensuring that returns keep pace with investment.
  4. Create a knowledge hub for each domain: In the domains that we operate in, we will provide a range of courses to meet every need and requirement of the industry and the person's career stage. In this way, we aim to create a knowledge hub for that particular domain/industry.


Edvancer's vision is to be the premier career-oriented education provider in the world. We aim to provide the most practical, industry focused, hands-on, cost effective courses which will enable our students to gain skills needed by industry and hence become employable. We will do this by being timely, relevant, high quality in our content and delivery and innovative in the use of technology.
