“With more than 15 years of experience in the payments technology industry, I undeniably have learnt a lot on the job. But to keep pace with changing times and upgrade one’s skills and competencies a focused professional intervention is often necessary. Mastercard’s Global Education Assistance Policy enabled me to gain this exposure through IIM Kozhikode’s General Management Programme. Powered by Talentedge’s learning platform, this comprehensive course was very effective both from a career as well as a networking perspective.”

I did my MBA in 1997 and have been working for the past 23 years during which there have been so many changes in context of technologies, business practices etc. that now it has become a ‘water over head’ sort of a situation. Hence, it was essential to upgrade myself to keep up with the changing times.
The General Management program from IIM Kozhikode and Talentedge has helped me to sharpen my managerial and leadership skills to face the challenges of the industry. The journey has been highly interactive with a lot of learning and I’m definitely at a better place now than I was at the beginning of this year.

I’ve been a part of the workforce from past 7 years across industries including Ed.Tech., media, banking, etc. and currently working with the World Bank. Throughout my corporate journey, I’ve been extremely passionate about learning and I’ve taken a few online certification courses but this General Management program was the best deal I cracked with Talentedge and IIM Kozhikode.
Talentedge, in my opinion, is one of the best platforms for online courses which offers the best learning experience from a career perspective.

May 2019 Batch
The reason why I got into this program is because I felt there is a mild stagnation creeping into my career. Having more than 20 years of experience, I’m now witnessing a massive influx of new blood into the workforce, enforcing senior professionals like myself to be on our toes in order to keep up with the competition.
Since I’ve taken this course and I’ve updated my knowledge, it has put me up the order in terms of recognition because it portrays that I’m serious about learning and upskilling myself.
This is the reason why upskilling is highly important for the ones who have been a part of the workforce for more than a decade as even the education and concepts of management have changed drastically since the time we pursued our masters. So when I came across this opportunity to enhance my knowledge, skills and expertise, offered by Talentedge & IIM Kozhikode, I realized now is the time to go for it.
