Networking Blueprint helps you establish deep connections with CxOs and top professionals in your dream industry

Networking is, probably, the most significant part of your MBA. You as an MBA student claim in your B-school interviews that networking is one of the biggest reason why you want to do MBA. And truly, MBA is not just about a degree but about the network that you build.

If you can build a strong network with your peers and the alumni, it will help you not only during your MBA and but more when you will be in the industry.

But what are the problems because of which you might be finding it difficult? Here are two of them:

  1. You have made it to be a sales pitch for yourself – you have made that networking small talk an opportunity to get a job or favor from that executive. Hence, there is pressure in your head.
  2. You know that you don’t have much to offer – you know that even if that small talk or interaction happens, you will be just like any other student on the campus who has nothing much to offer to the conversation.

    In this course, Networking Blueprint, you will learn how to overcome both of these hindrances that are stopping you from doing meaningful networking to make an impact.

    The Networking Blueprint course will be the icing on the cake after you have gone through most of the courses in the Five Steps Ahead.

    Networking Blueprint comes FREE with the flagship course Five Steps Ahead
