The Institute for Career Studies (ICS-International)

The Institute for Career Studies (ICS-International) was established in 1985, for the holistic development of individuals through a multi-pronged spectrum of services in the field of Education. ICS pioneered the highly specialised field of career counselling and guidance for students in India and also in the Middle East and South Asia. It has the distinction of conducting its programmes in more than 200 leading residential and day schools, colleges, universities and reaching out to over 3,00,000 students through a dedicated team of eminent counsellors and professionals. In addition to career counselling and guidance programmes, ICS has also been engaged in designing and delivering a wide range of educational and professional training programmes for teachers and edu-leaders. It has trained over 10,000 teachers and more than 1000 principals since its inception. ICS has forged alliances with foreign universities for various innovative student-centric programmes. It also provides consultancy to educational institutions at various levels. Based on in-depth knowledge and hands-on experiential learning accumulated over the years, the Institute’s career counsellors and educationists have designed the first of its kind Post Graduate Diploma in Career Counselling and Guidance, a cutting-edge online courseware for counsellors and teachers. For its exemplary contribution in the field, ICS was recognised with The Times Group “Award for Excellence in Education” in 2015. The institute is led by its Founder-Director, Dr. Amrita Dass, a well-known educationist, career consultant, futurist, columnist and a philanthropist.
