When i told my colleague Vivek Bhattacharya (24×7 Learning) that i was enrolling for Advanced Program in Strategic Management, he asked me this question “Why”?
For me learning has been a passion. Most of the jobs i take up are for learning something new. The course was one of the three which i had applied at IIM-Calcutta why sending the application but i was shortlisted for this program.
For me fee in 2008 was hefty for an upcoming online course like this one. But what did i get?
Apart from the learning on a subject like Strategic Management, Case Study Method and Online Learning through NIIT Imperia, what i got was amazing list of peers in the program.

As three of us met in 2017 at Ahmedabad, we realized that networking with old peers and pals teaches a lot of life and profession as a whole. All three of us were part of technology industry and could learn a lot over a small conversation over breakfast.
An program/ course gives you a great set of people whom one connects with. The connections and contacts are important to carry forward in life, learn and also share the learning with peers).
I am sure the college graduates shall take note of this and keep connecting beyond the online world of Facebook and LinkedIn.
