The Brand Building program is a unique online educational offering designed to equip you with the skills you need, to land the job you want, so you can build the life you deserve.
The program helps you crack outstanding placements and stand out in any marketing stint, through powerful, industry relevant content, vibrant discussions with peers and a rigorous evaluation process. INDUSTRYCredsTM are created and designed in partnership with the leading sales and marketing companies of India.
As soon as you start the program, you join other students from across the top campuses of the country in working towards the same credential. You interact with your fellow students, as well as members of the Kraftshala Coach team, in an online community to receive support throughout the program.
The evaluation process at the end of the program ensures you have complete clarity on where you stand and how you can improve.
The Brand Building program has been designed with some of the industry’s leading marketers to help you grasp relevant brand building frameworks. In Brand Building the focus is on the practical aspects of marketing, including the systematic processing of data leading to insight leading to proposition and its activation.
Brand Building has been designed to help you excel at practically applying brand building concepts. Keeping that in mind, in this edition of the program you would be working on creating the strategic communication brief for 3M.
Our curriculum managers partner with hiring managers and subject matter experts from leading companies to figure the skills to be demonstrated in the placement process. The programs are designed to build these skills through conceptual understanding of real world brand building.
INDUSTRYCredsTM scores are evaluation scores earned at the end of the program. These are calculated on the basis of 10 SuccessKeys, which are parameters that reflect leadership and S&M aptitude that are used by major recruiters in their own hiring process.
These credentials are useful to benchmark yourself against absolute standard, while also demonstrating your brand building potential to our industry partners, many of whom are leading recruiters at top business schools. If you do well your name gets forwarded to our partnering recruiters as a high potential talent.
The students who took the program last year got placed in firms like BCG, HUL, Nestle, ITC, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Marico etc. while 3 top students got Nestle PPIs for their performance. Apart from this, numerous students have won competitions like HUL Lime, ITC Interrobang, Nestle 4Ps, Mahindra War Room, Coca cola and Airtel Case Study challenges among others.
You can use the following pointers to make that decision:
1. If your first priority is a PPO and you are going for an internship in a company that’s likely to give you a project in one of the 2 domains (marketing or sales), then you should choose accordingly to give yourself the best chance of converting.
2. If you are interested in a career in category management (in online or physical goods consumer companies), then Sales Leadership would be a better choice for you.
3. If you are interested in a career in product management or consulting, then Brand Building is a better fit. Further, most case study competitions feature marketing cases, which is again covered extensively in Brand Building.
4. If you are interested in finishing both programs before Summers, our program team can customize the schedule to help you do that.
The final evaluation interviews would be taken by an expert interviewer panel. This team comprises of industry professionals shortlisted and trained to maintain a consistent and enriching interview experience that conforms to industry standards.
The program schedule allows students to learn and practice at their own pace, and is adjusted to each campus’s specific schedule. The program consists of 7 hours of self-paced video content. The schedule will be adjusted to major campus events such as exams and fests.
