Create the best career outcomes from MBA without depending on placements

Learn how to create the best career opportunities in the field of Marketing by turning your knowledge and digital skills into a passion project that builds your personal brand.

But, what does ‘create’ the best career outcome even mean?

It means that you are not waiting to get the jobs to come to your campus. You are, in fact, utilizing your knowledge, skills and network to uncover opportunities that most MBA students, mistakenly, don’t even look at.

You don’t realize that there are opportunities you aren’t even looking at

Off-Campus Placements

Companies looking to fill up vacancies need not always wait till college placements. Nor they might come to campus for one vacancy

Global Consulting and Freelancing

Businesses around the world are eager to work with young Indian MBA talent. This course tells you how to get them to hire you

Digital Entrepreneurship

A side-hustle from your MBA days could turn out to be the start-up of your dreams. Learn how to build a business around you

And, on-campus would just become a by-product of your brilliance and new-found knowledge and digital skills

How to make all of this happen during MBA?

You can make this happen when you stop seeing yourself as an MBA student and instead start seeing yourself as a ‘Practitioner’ of your knowledge and skills. Five Steps Ahead makes it happen in five steps.
