While a big focus of the recently-announced partnership between Indian tech giant Infosys and Purdue University is training, the five-year agreement will go much deeper. It calls for Purdue to train 10,000 future Infosys employees in the U.S., including 2,000 in Indiana. But it also calls for creation of an Infosys Solutions Center to address business challenges in the manufacturing, pharmaceutical and agriculture sectors, key focus areas for the company.

Purdue Executive Vice President Suresh Garimella calls the partnership "a great package solution."

In May, Infosys announced plans to create 10,000 jobs in the U.S., including 2,000 at an Indianapolis tech and innovation hub.
