Brand marketing and management are atop every company’s priority list today. These two facets make or break a brand, especially given today’s cut-throat competitive environment. In this context, the Marketing and Brand Management course offered by MICA with Talentedge prepares one to be ahead in the game in a systematic manner. The space is assessed, potential threats are identified and the most viable future road-map is chalked out. The course encourages one to think “out-of-the-box” in order to ensure that every brand gets its moment in the sun in an otherwise crowded space.

I joined this course (Certificate Programme in Brand Management & Advertising) hoping for gaining an insight into advertising. Didn't expect much out of it since it was an online program; however, I was proven wrong. The interaction that I've had with my classmates and the faculty's approach to teaching was way better than other online programs. Dr. Falguni & Dr. Anita had a practical 'learning- oriented' methodology and it was an interactive platform. Aditi, our student relations manager was always available to address our challenges. The class comprised of students across various backgrounds and it was an amazing experience. I'd vote for this one. Good job TalentEdge Team & thanks a tonne to MICA.
