How do You Become Job Ready Right After PGDM?

by Amit Gupta Education Blogger

Over the past decade, many industry leaders, both Indian and international, have expressed their concerns about the skillset of the country’s workforce. They stated that the crisis lay in the massive gap between what the graduates know and what the industry requires. However, even amidst this, management graduates from the best PGDM colleges in Delhi NCR have continued to find employment with more than decent annual packages and led the country to believe that PGDM is truly the way forward to settle your career fast. So, if there was a concern about the Indian workforce not being job-ready, how did management graduates get employed? What do the top B-schools do differently that the other institutes are missing out on?

Modern B-schools collaborate with corporate establishments

Any academic will tell you that it is impossible to design a curriculum that will prepare the students as per the precise needs of a particular company in a particular industry. Graduates can only learn the ways of an enterprise after spending a few months in the company. But what the colleges and universities can do is to build a proper foundation that is nearly in sync with the average industry requirements and modern B-schools achieve that by designing their PGDM curriculums in collaboration with top corporate establishments. For instance, a good B-school will frame its Human Resources course in association with a large HR firm like ManpowerGroup while its General Management can have inputs from real estate companies, IT firms, and much more. Such a collaborative curriculum helps to bridge the gap. And PGDM students pursue their diploma in a way that makes them job-ready.

B-school communities give a certain level of exposure

All good AICTE approved PGDM colleges in Delhi have functioning committees on their premises which the students can become a member of from day one. These committees have unique responsibilities in an academic year, function with a similar hierarchy as the corporate world, and undertake projects to organise events and workshops that give management aspirants a certain level of industry exposure. In top B-schools, you will typically find committees like Interface and Humanist, Consultancy, Admissions, Alumni, and much more. You become a member as per your core PGDM course and mettle. You take care of your assigned tasks while working in a group and collaborating with other committees. With time, you also get to rise in the ranks of your own committee and hold managerial positions that help to further your skills. In every way, B-school committees prepare you for the future that lies ahead in front of you.
