The rise of the digital space has given us stellar artistes. One such name is Trupti Khamkar, who has impressed the audience with her work. The talented actress made her foray in the world of entertainment with the sketches of the comedy collective AIB which went on to become massive hits.

Her comic timing and flawless performances impressed the audience to a great extent. With ‘Tumhaari Sulu’ and ‘The White Tiger’ where she starred alongside prominent talents like Vidya Balan, Rajkummar Rao and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, she reached the Indian households amassing an even greater following. And now, the actress is all set for her upcoming thriller series titled ‘Girgit’ in which she plays a con girl.

The series is set to have a bilateral release on ALT Balaji and MX player and will see the actress playing the lead and romancing for the first time on-screen. Talking about her experience of shooting for the series, Trupti revealed how initially she was a bundle of nerves as this was something new for her. She says, “I have never done a romantic scene or anything close to it ever on-screen, which made me more conscious.”

But soon, she overcame the nervousness, “Days before the shoot, I was a little nervous, my director comforted me as I had to look fearless in the shot, if I looked scared the scene might have lost its essence. The first few takes were a little off but later I got comfortable and confident and the end result was very good,” she added.

Trupti feels grateful for the opportunities that have come her way and pledges to enthrall the audience with her work. “I am lucky that I am very passionate about my career and such an opportunity only comes with a lot of effort and hard work,” she concluded.

Girgit is a seven-part thriller series that digs into the slimy layers of the dark secrets and brings forth the varying shades of its characters and how they change colours akin to a chameleon when pushed against the wall. It tells the limits that the human mind can go to when it finds itself drowning in troubled waters.

The series is set to stream on ALTBalaji & MX player on October 27.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
