PGDM and BBA are both management courses giving students the opportunity to dream higher and be successful, both of these courses hold a great value in the market.
Let’s talk about these courses :
There are institutes which provide a 5-year integrated course which includes BBA+MBA. And the Indian Institute of Management is the first among all the IIMs to introduce it.
The Indian economy has seen a rise in a few decades and so has the business industry, as business companies grow and establish they require more skilled and trained employees. BBA as a course has seen a lot of growth, with more and more people applying for it in various colleges. Now more than 500 universities and colleges offer BBA as a course in India.
This degree is designed to provide a broad knowledge of the functional aspects of a company and their interconnection. It also allows specialization in a particular area. The programs expose students to a variety of “core subjects” and also allow students to specialize in a specific academic area. The degree also develops the student’s practical, managerial and communication skills, and business decision-making capability. Many programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of case projects, presentations, internships, industrial visits, and interaction with experts from the industry.
When an Institute secures autonomy they design their own curriculum to be taught instead of following outdated University syllabus. The reason why they chose to do so is that the curriculum can be updated regularly depending on the need in the Industry. Therefore the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) is giving the authority to conduct PGDM courses in approved colleges. Hence it can be said that PGDM courses are more relevant in terms of the industry than MBA courses
SECRETS THAT CAN LAND YOU JOBS IN TOP COMPANIES
You can certainly try emailing by yourself with a warm introduction. However, everyone is so “bombarded and overwhelmed” at work that it’s more likely you won’t get a response. Top companies receive thousands of resumes every single day
“If a person introduces you, the contact is exponentially more likely to get back to you,”.
Drafting the introductory email for the person using a few sentences that briefly discuss who you are and what you want. That way, the person making the introduction can quickly scan the email and shoot it off to the recipient.
Once that’s done, delve into why you are reaching out. the more clear information you provide from the start, the more likely you are to get a response back from the person.
In fact, the next email should be a maximum of three sentences, discussing who you are, why you want to talk to them and proposing next steps.
“Be super simple. Use clarity,” he says. “The person either want to talk to you or they don’t.”
“It makes it easier for them and gives them actual next steps,”. “Plus they don’t have to set it up themselves or check their schedules.”
If you’re referred to the assistant, treat that person the same way you’d treat who you are trying to get on the phone.
“Recognize the deep humanity in this chain,” .”Treat the assistant respectfully and thankfully.”
Any business expert would suggest asking for a brief, 15-minute call and says that you should make sure to keep your schedule open for them.
“Be upfront and appreciative and you’ll be able to talk to whom you want to talk to,” he says.
“A lot of people are just busy. It’s not about you, it’s about them and their life,”. “Be amenable and try to accommodate changes.”
It’s also important to have an “authentic tone” when reaching out once more. He suggests starting the conversation by saying the following: “Hey, I don’t mean to be a pain” or “Is there anything I can do to facilitate this?”
Oftentimes you will try to get in touch with a person and for one reason or another, things don’t work out. But then you might meet them later, and establish a great rapport.
