Infosys, one of the renowned IT companies, has built the world’s biggest corporate training facility in Mysore. Infosys Mysore Campus is also known by several names as: “Heaven on Earth” and “A Paradise”. Infosys Mysore Campus is the epitome of real infrastructure art. The trainees who have been selected by Infosys for training at the Mysore campus will be really keen to go campus as soon, after reading this article.
Infosys’ Chairman and Chief Mentor M.R.Narayana Murthy has described the training center, located 140 km off from India’s silicon valley, Bangalore, as the biggest corporate training facility in the world. “We are setting up the biggest corporate training facility in the world with 2,000 rooms which can house 4,000 people on a twin sharing basis. As we would be hiring roughly 12,000 people on an average, if we train 4,000 employees for four months, we should be able to turn around three batches in a year at this center,” he says.

Things you should not do in the Mysore campus:
- Smoking inside your hostel rooms, every room has a smoke sensor, you will be in great trouble. Get rid of these habits before coming to campus.
- Roaming late night on campus roads with your new girl/boyfriend.
- Do not enter the campus gates when you are drunk, Infosys campus has the facility to carry out drinking test in their own medical clinic. If you are found guilty, you will have to pay heavy penalties.
- Avoid playing games on your PC’s or do not get caught.
- Do not entertain with the campus stuff, especially emergency alarm, fire alarm, etc. The campus has a full arrangement of CCTV cameras to record your activities.
- For Interns, Do not give your ID card to your friends to swipe in attendance on your behalf. It is a sin there. If caught, you will have to pay a high penalty for this.
** I have got queries on whether Infosys pays for your flights/or travel. You need to reach the campus on your own and Infosys does not pay for your flights. Check flights here.
