How the right institute can go a long way in re-launching your career
Institutions and universities that follow a scientific placement process are more likely to attract the best opportunities on campus, especially for working executives who are looking for a new break in their careersUpdated: Jul 07, 2017 18:45 IST
More and more mid-career executives today are choosing to go back to the classroom and gather dynamic new skills to remain relevant in this fast-paced and rapidly changing world. There are several reasons behind this: professionals who enter the job market early on may often lose interest in their line of work. Others may use a mid-career break to learn new skills and transition onto better roles and opportunities.
In recent times, emerging technology has redefined traditional choices and added exciting new responsibility areas – from big data and predictive analysis to digital marketing and supply chain management. Professionals today are constantly expected to update their knowledge and work skills, and stay in touch with the technology demands of the times.

Keeping this in mind, several B-schools offer specialized courses that are predominantly designed for working executives, and are both innovative in nature and flexible in their teaching approach. However, for such programmes to really succeed, two factors remain crucial: first, the institution or B-school should have strong industry links and be in a position to provide real-world exposure to students.
