Zoho University


For students looking for a well-rounded training in software engineering and product development.

Zoho University


The School for Advanced Study is what it says it is; for students who can already code, build small applications, and want to do even more! Students should aspire for this if they are clear about what they want to do, and want just the right nudge and the perfect stretch goal to aim even higher.

Zoho University

School of DESIGN

For students with a keen interest in art and an eye for aesthetic detail, a finishing school for user experience professionals.

Zoho University

School of Business

A successful business needs more than just high tech and great visual design. A heady mix of excellent support, effective marketing, and efficient sales is as important. If you have a yen for selling, a way with people, and power over the written (and spoken) word, we might be your meaningful alternative to a conventional business school degree.

Way back in 2004, curiosity had us running a poll at Zoho to find out, 

How useful
​was college?

How useful and relevant do you find the 'education' you received at college to your current job?


How it all started...

And so, we realised that almost all learning that was really useful for work, was learnt while on the job!
