He completed the NUJS Diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws in 2014. We asked him about his experience with the course and he had many good things to share about. So we decided to share it with you all as a success story. Over to Shivam:
I joined the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while I was in the third year of my law school. I got to know about this course through a friend of mine. He told me that it’s a very practical course and covers aspects which are not covered in law school. When I browsed through the website, I found the course syllabus and curriculum to be very well structured.
My purpose of joining the course is certainly fulfilled; it has given me the much needed practical knowledge of law.
All modules in the course are designed with emphases on practical knowledge. The concepts are not explained theoretically but in a practical manner. I personally found the module on business structuring, institutional finance, and raising investment to be most beneficial for me. I am able to utilize this knowledge in my current job also.
I learnt drafting and documentation to a great extent from this course. What is the exact format, what all points to cover, what sort of agreement should be covered in a corporate transaction, details like this provided in the course are very practical and handy.
My future plan is to have a career in corporate law only and in future, I want to be a partner at a reputed law firm. The skills that I adopted from this course are commendable. I feel that the knowledge gained from this course would come handy then also.
I have mentioned the diploma in my CV and LinkedIn profile. I was also asked questions about this course during my interview for the current job. I believe this adds value to my profile.
I have already recommended this course to several persons and will continue to recommend it to others. I feel this course is very beneficial for people from a legal background and for MBAs as they also require the basic knowledge of business laws.
