Some of the biggest challenges MBA students face in India have to be related to placements. Most universities use this common proposition as a way to captivate aspiring students and sell their courses over to them. The reality is far worse for corporate MBA programs.
An article put out by Inside IIM titled “The dark truths of MBA placements” sheds light on this challenging side of the story. The article adds how placements happen in three clusters and estimates 90% of the students do get placed but out of that number, 40% of the students are offered jobs that have no relevance whatsoever to the MBA course, forcing students to look for a better job and career opportunities on their own.
It is very much known that an MBA course is certainly not a cheap course. Many students end up taking student loans that come with high-interest rates in the hope that the university they apply for will ultimately, after 2 years, provide them with a good placement aka a good job with a good salary package making those 1 and a half/2 year an anxious wait.
This is where Jagran Lakecity University’s Corporate MBA is different. The MBA course is designed to be a one-of-a-kind, job-linked program where candidates are placed within 6 months of enrolment. This is thanks to their partnership with Talentedge, India’s largest online higher secondary education platform which offers numerous industry-relevant courses and programs.
Jagran Lakecity University’s unique pedagogy which believes in industry-intensive intervention engraved in their academics coupled with Talentedge’s Industry-academia model that runs on the “of the corporate”, “by the corporate” and “for the corporate” concept makes this MBA course a first-of-its-kind in the country. It ensures students are not only placed early but are also seamlessly transitioned from being a student to a productive employee.
