Fashion management programmes, whether MA or MBA, equip you with managerial skills in the field of fashion marketing, merchandising and retailing best geared to the requirements of garment export and fashion retail industry. The training helps you develop the basic business competencies in core technical areas of fashion industry, suitable for those who have studied fashion and students from other disciplines.

The courses include business development, finance, managerial economics, market research, supply chain management as well as modules on fashion merchandising, elements of fashion design, product development, international sourcing and so on. - Usha Albuquerque

The bachelor of education (BEd) course qualifies you to be appointed as a teacher for secondary and senior secondary classes. Your suitability for selection as a teacher will depend on the BEd course undertaken, the subjects for graduation, and postgraduation and a minimum eligibility requirement of 50% in graduation. Every BEd student has to develop pedagogical skills in two subjects carrying 200 marks each and should have obtained 50% in each of the two subjects in graduation. The choice of subject for teaching depends on the subjects you have taken up for graduation and postgraduation, according to which you can teach those subjects at school level from grade 6 to grade 10 (secondary level), or grade 11 to grade 12 (senior secondary or higher secondary level). Depending on the subject you have taken up for BA from a recognised university, and the marks obtained, you can also apply for teaching that subject. - Usha Albuquerque
Q.
I have completed my BBA from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University and I plan to pursue my postgraduation. I would like to know if it’s a good idea to work for a while now so that I get a good pay package once I am done with my postgraduation. I have not done any internship and I do not have any work experience as yet. I am preparing for my MBA entrance exams and I am relatively free, otherwise. My friends have already joined their places of work and I am confused about whether I should focus on my studies or find a job. —A Singh

It is a wise decision to gain some work experience after a degree before rushing into an MBA. The job option would enable you to get hands-on understanding of the work scene, and a better grip on decision-making. Work reinforces and challenges one’s ideas, it adds perspective, understanding and motivation. Most students have little idea of the world of work and not enough maturity or exposure to know which area of work, or specialisation in MBA they should take up. Work experience can give you rare insights into how a business works in practice beyond what you learn through textbooks.

The MBA course is a mix of theory and practice which develops practical knowledge and skills using case study methodologies that require a high level of participation from students. You can benefit greatly from the course when you put your learning into a real-world perspective. Therefore, keep in mind that companies will be looking for MBA graduates who have work experience, besides academic credentials. If you don’t have work experience, you will be competing with others who may have the same academic credentials (as you) with work experience. Stronger candidates will get better job offers. --- Usha Albuquerque
