First things first – congratulations on becoming an MBA! We know how difficult it can be to bell the CAT, or NMAT, or well… the hundred other entrance exams you guys have to take in a season in order to have a shot at your preferred B-schools. And that you did. You cracked the MBA code successfully, and now your visiting card (as well as matrimonial/tinder profile) boasts of “MBA” after your name. But any MBA worth his salt would know an MBA degree, irrespective of the field of specialization, is not the end, but the means to an end. An MBA degree sets the tone for your future business plans, but in a dynamic environment that exists today, constant upgradation is the name of the game. You need to keep honing your skills, as well as adding new ones, to stay relevant in the market.
And so, we bring to you 5 workshops every MBA graduate must attend!
1) Digital Marketing
Unless you’re Captain America who just woke up after being frozen for 70 years, you would know the world runs online now. It would be a sin to not have your business go online and reap the harvest of immense profitability that lies therein, wouldn’t it? Eduwiz brings to you Digital Marketing 101, a one-stop shop to learn about the newest trend taking the marketing world by storm.
Topics to be covered include SEO, blogs, social media usage, components of digital marketing and much more! At 3 hours, the workshop is guaranteed to provide some nice fuel to your brain (unlike a Salman Khan movie)!

4) Public Speaking
“His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy…” goes your mind at the mere prospect of speaking in front of hundreds of people, doesn’t it? After all, it takes more than just guts to go out there and speak. With people judging every word, waiting to pounce upon the slightest error in grammar or otherwise, it can sure seem like a Herculean task to open your mouth…
No more! Join hands with Tushar Razdan, an eminent public speaking and personality development coach, to move over to the greener side of the grass – a place where you rule the world of speaking and fear none, be it 10 or 10,000 people. Over a course of 1.5 hours, you will learn the tricks of the trade required to excel in any given environment – be it an interview or an investor pitch. You will be guided on various fronts – how to overcome fear, build confidence, improve your vocabulary, etc. All this, at the cost of 1.5 hours of a lazy Sunday-afternoon sleep. Worth every night you will sleep peacefully after this though…

5) Advanced MS Excel – All India Tour
Well, you don’t need even need to be an MBA to know just how important Microsoft Excel is, especially when it comes to business management. However, for most people, the knowledge of MS Excel is limited to basic formulae and a few keyboard shortcuts. Most people are unaware of the real magic Excel has the potential to create with the help of advanced tools such as macros, PivotTables, VBA, etc.
So don’t be that idiot who sits and drags-down on excel all day! Be that wizard who creates a whole different world of his business using Excel tools. Join the bandwagon with Black Feathers, with workshops to be conducted in multiple cities across India from January to April.
What’s more, you get a certificate at the end of it too! And a free booklet for future references… well bargains never got better than this, did they?

If you have too much free time and don’t wish to waste it watching Big Boss or Saath Nibhana Saathiya (wise decision!), you can also check out various other events related to multifarious fields, such as HR, SEO, Web Designing, Blockchain Certification, Online money-making, etc. After all, what else can separate you from the thousand other MBA’s who pass out every year having studied the same stuff that you did? Surely not Heena Khan…
