She completed the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws in 2015. Over here she talks about her experience with the NUJS diploma course, and how it helped her career so far. Over to Deepal.
I joined the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while I was in the final year of my law school. I found this course while searching the internet for a diploma course to strengthen my hold on business and corporate laws.
I was very impressed by the course syllabus; it was very extensive and covered almost everything I wanted. I decided to take up this course because along with the syllabus I liked the course duration too. It was neither long nor too short. A one year diploma course looked just perfect to me.
It provided the in-depth practical knowledge of different laws which I was looking for and I strongly feel that this course has added value to my profile. This has helped me in gaining knowledge about sections I was not much aware of, sections which I hardly used in my day to day work.
I especially found the modules on arbitration to be very informative. I benefitted the most from the drafting exercises. I’m unable to apply much of my learning from this diploma course as I’m into criminal law, but this course has certainly enhanced my knowledge and skills.
I have mentioned the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws in my CV and my LinkedIn profile and have I had discussions about this diploma course with my colleagues and seniors.
In future, I plan to continue my criminal law practice but I might go for arbitration. If that happens, the knowledge gained through this diploma course would be very helpful. Even in the criminal law practice the drafting skills acquired through this course would be very useful.
I would absolutely recommend this course to other people. Anyone who wants to have a hang of law should do this diploma course. This is especially beneficial to people from accounts and finance backgrounds, people interested in stock market, MBAs, entrepreneurs etc.
