The company has already enrolled 500 students in the program, and apart from the video-based course, it also focuses on community and networking, which is also an essential part of being an MBA student. It mainly targets aspiring entrepreneurs, managers, and leaders, as well as technical professionals who want to upgrade their knowledge in business and management.
