Singapore-based edtech company Great Learning, a part of BYJU'S group, has acquired talent recruitment automation platform Superset, for an undisclosed amount.

Superset will continue to operate under the leadership of its co-founders, Naman Agrawal and Pranjal Goswami.

Superset enables colleges to automate end-to-end campus placements, helps employers hire young talent from across colleges in the country, and empowers students to access opportunities democratically. Over 4.2 lakh students have successfully been placed through the platform to date.  

Established in 2017, Superset has automated placements for over 500 colleges/universities, while providing access to placement opportunities to over 27 lakh students from 15,500 colleges. It has also enabled virtual recruitment processes for large enterprises and has over 4200 companies on its platform.

“The Superset platform, with its digital solutions for campus placements and corporate recruitment, augments the skill-based professional learning offerings from Great Learning to together realize the vision of bridging the 'skill- gap' for India’s talent and efficiently connecting them with employers and job opportunities. The complementary strengths will not only prepare India’s vibrant workforce to keep pace in the competitive global economy but also provide greater accessibility to job opportunities,” the company said in a statement.

With substantial backing from Great Learning and BYJU’s, Superset will accelerate its growth in India while also expanding its offerings to students and recruiters.

“Superset is a strong and strategic fit for Great Learning. The guiding philosophy of both companies has always been aligned towards bridging the gap between education and employment. Superset will propel Great Learning’s efforts to bridge the gap between students, professionals and employers by streamlining campus placements and simplifying hiring processes for colleges, students and companies,” said Mohan Lakhamraju, founder and CEO, Great Learning.

“We are excited to join forces with Great Learning and accelerate our vision of empowering India’s youth with relevant skills and jobs to make us a future-ready nation. As higher education moves online, we will combine our strengths in technology, to provide students with access to opportunities democratically,” said Naman Agrawal and Pranjal Goswami co-founders, Superset.

Great Learning was acquired by BYJU’S in 2021, expanding its offerings beyond the K-12 and test prep segment.

Founded in 2013, the edtech company has delivered over 75 million hours of impactful learning to 3.5 million learners from over 170 countries.  It collaborates with the best universities in the world including Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Wharton, The University of Texas at Austin, Northwestern University, National University of Singapore (NUS), Deakin University, IIT Madras, IIT Roorkee, IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Delhi, Shiv Nadar University, Great Lakes Institute of Management and other top universities to enable them to offer Degree, Diploma and Certificate programs.
