He is currently pursuing the NUJS MA in Business Laws course and over here he shares why he enrolled for the NUJS MA in Business Laws Program, in spite of having an enviable educational background and career. Over to Anirban:
Having spent many years evaluating finance and other business processes from a business risk, controls and compliance perspective, I aspire to eventually become a CFO someday, and given my international qualifications as the base, I wanted to strengthen my regulatory knowledge related to corporate laws in India and gain more knowledge about laws related to M&A, Private equity/ venture capital investments, Funding, Intellectual property etc. and legal expertise.
I am usually very active when it comes to looking for courses that upgrade my skills / technical knowledge and had earlier enrolled for a course from NLS, but found it to be too theoretical and the content was only available in the form of textbooks. That is when I started looking for a course, that was more practical and found this course while searching online. I enrolled for the initial 5-day course and found it to be really good. I decided to enroll for the course because it is affiliated with NUJS. Also, the course was available online and content includes webinars.
The NUJS MA in Business Laws course has given me a good overview so far of the legal framework in India with lots of practical insights such as how to start a company, key considerations in contract drafting, dispute redressal, litigation strategy etc. all of which are quite relevant for the formation and running of a business. In addition to this, a great aspect of the course is the live webinars and recordings with industry experts that are available to all the students. This eliminates limitations of distance education that one might otherwise be worried about in other courses.
Another unique aspect is the writing assignments, which I think really opens up one’s ability to form an independent opinion and research skills, and helps build the ability to articulate one’s thoughts in a logical flow.
I have found the course to be very practical. The content has been written in a very easy to understand language. The content is also relevant to what I was looking for such as things related to startups like Founder’s Agreement etc. These items are usually not included within regular courses that have a more theoretical orientation.
