Souvik Sadhukhan, a fulltime employee, enrolled into a certification programmed in business management at IIM-C that eventually helped him bag a job at Reliance Jio Infocomm as head of marketing communications.
The programme aims at providing skillsets to manage an enterprise and get acquainted with the latest trends in management. Online MBA programmes are boon to many like Sadhukhan who want to pursue a career while looking for a job.
Uday Salunkhe, Group Director of Welingkar Institute says that online management programmes offer many advantages. “Online MBA programmes create learning experiences that are more personal, relevant and accessible. Moreover, they provide flexibility to the learner to learn at his or her own pace. Another advantage is that they help continuously improve the skill set and knowledge of the learner and also promote life-long learning for people desirous of upgrading their skills and knowledge.”
Online programmes use technology to facilitate live interaction with faculty members. This majorly helps students who feel they are geographically dispersed.
Welingkar also conducts industry visits every month for online students and faculty members to enhance their interaction with industry experts. In order to develop their functional and soft skills, weekly workshops are conducted with the assistance of industry leaders and professional trainers.
Online MBAs are mostly pursued by working professionals. Unlike most institutes, Welingkar offers placement assistance and career assistance for online programmes. Dr Uday Salunkhe explains, “WeSchool acquaints its students with job openings state-wise as well as specialisation-wise on its website.”
