Well it highly depends upon your interest in such a dynamic sector. Aviation is a core industry with lot of ups and downs. But over the years, aviation industry has been gaining stability (due to change in government maybe). India is focusing less on imports. As far as, seeing it as a career option then you have multiple career prospects like Customer Service Management, Customer Relationship Management, Revenue Management, Airline Sales & Marketing, Flight/Data Analysis etc. In my opinion, Sales & Marketing would be a great career aspect. As it will open many doors in near future plus sales in aviation would be less of B2C and more client based.
Now, discussing it all one by one, will give a better understanding.
1. Academic process at UPES follows the Outcome Based Education model (OBE). Means from the beginning its all student-centric. What the student needs to learn, what all skills the student needs to possess and how good the student needs to perform. All activities, curricular, extra-curricular or co-curricular; are based on this outcome based model. The academic process in UPES works on bridging the gap between academia and Industry. From designing of the curriculum to organization of events are all focusing on the agenda of grooming the students to the needs and demands of the industry and profession.
2. Exposure level of students is very high in UPES. Accomplished professionals including lawyers, counsels, corporate consultants and other contributors are invited for guest lectures or for some events. Their interactions with students are really enriching. If we look at the resource persons, it includes prominent persons from including Mr. M.C. Mehta, Ms. Sadhana Ramachandran, Mr. J.P. Sengh, Mr. Pawan Duggal, Shri Praveen H. Parekh, Mr. R. Venkataramani, Mr. Rajendra Singh ‘Jalpurush’, Former Hon’ble Chief Justices of India Justice A. M. Ahmadi, Justice K.G. Balakrishnan, Justice J. S. Verma, Justice Swantantra Kumar and many others of similar levels of knowledge and experience. The resource persons from Law firms have also included people like Mr. Vinod Surana, Mr. Rajat Jariwal, Ms. Punal Verma, Dr. Manoj Kumar and many similar experienced persons. The level and quality of events in UPES is also rich by these contributions and so is the students preparedness for placements.
3. Now coming to Institutional efforts, UPES has a dedicated team of career service professionals who work on the needs of the industry, engage with the people from profession and industry and then provide inputs to the academic teams. This also contribute to the students’ preparedness for placements. The career service team supports the students getting internships and now a days a lot of students get their placements offers from the places they have interned. Apart from this, companies also visit the campus and students are selected through campus rounds. The students, who wish to join litigation, are also supported by the career services. Their prospective list includes lawyers also. So, the litigations choosers also receive support from career services.
4. Now to add to this, the institutional efforts of UPES are even bigger than what they may look like. It’s not so isolated an activity about getting a job. Career support in UPES includes counselling by the career services team. More importantly, faculty also plays an important role in counselling the students and UPES supports it’s students till 5 years after passing out. A student who was placed from campus, is also eligible for this support for 5 years, as and when needed.
This way, placement of all Law students is well lead. Outcome is also good. Placement figures have always been close to 100%. Even in the pandemic situation, UPES could place 68% of it’s B.B.A.,LL.B. students and still counting.
