Why should high school students join this program?

Now, when your classmates and other children in your school are burning their midnight oil for cracking Engineering/Medical Entrance exams and getting a seat in leading colleges why should you go a step different and enroll in this program?

Well here are the top 5 reasons : 

  • Time utilized in learning is much better than time killed. An idle mind is of no use, better put it somewhere in learning something new which will broaden your horizon
  • You get to learn subjects and streams which are not a part of your board curriculum. You get knowledge and basics of subjects less/unexplored
  • Admit it; we all are confused about our careers right now. Even our elders were, today we are and our juniors will be also confused. A program like this helps to understand and locate that one interest which might become our career one day
  • It is also a great way of preparing yourself for what lies ahead after school i.e. College. It gives us a basic understanding of Finance, Strategic Management, Marketing, Advertising and helps us in either our BBA/MBA, Finance, Economics or Media Studies
  • Networking is always a boon in disguise when it comes to make a career in Corporate Communications for future guidance, one’s outlook or jobs 


Why study Business, Finance, Marketing & Advertising?

Finance, Marketing and Advertising come under Corporate Communications which offer you a versatile and a great earning job portfolio unlike other careers you can choose from varied career options such as: 

  • Financial Analyst
  • Equity Analyst
  • Business Analyst
  • Economist
  • Advertising Copywriters
  • Public relations representatives
  • Brand Managers
  • Marketing Assistants
  • Market Research Analysts
  • Social Media Managers
  • Sales Managers

The job outlook for those employed as advertising, promotions, or marketing managers is exceptionally optimistic, says the USA Bureau of Labor Statistics. This field is expected to grow at a rate that’s 8 percent greater than the national average through 2028. This will affect the Indian Economy as well highly

During the pandemic where other companies of different industries were shelling out professionals as a part of the cost cutting, it was seen that the marketing and advertising agencies either did it way too less or didn’t do it. Thus this industry had a less than smooth run but the lowest shelling out of employees. Thus this industry has a job security too.
