As the world’s economies have become increasingly intertwined in recent decades, the need to be able to communicate effectively and succinctly in business has also gained importance. Consequently, fluency in English is a skill set highly sought after by recruiters. Graduates, who possess comprehensive knowledge of the language, also have a competitive edge in the corporate world, and get 34% higher salaries than those who do not speak it well. This makes it imperative for students to hone their English language skills, in order to successfully become a part of the global workforce. To meet this demand, the Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management (TSCFM) has introduced the Certificate in Business English program, to help students prepare for jobs in top companies.
The 1-month part-time course provides in-depth training, and is delivered by IELTS-level Corporate English instructors. Bearing in mind the ongoing pandemic, the course is being offered completely online, along with a smartphone-based mobile app designed for an enhanced learning experience. The course curriculum has been developed in association with EduQual (UK) and the British Council, and includes various topics such as English grammar & pronunciation, Personality Development, Group Discussion & Interview Techniques, Email Writing, Telephone Etiquette, Grooming & Body Language, Public Speaking and Presentation Skills. The assessment is carried out using the Pearson Versant test, a standardized evaluation tool, used by a majority of Indian recruiters.
Additionally, TSCFM’s Certificate in Business English program has a placement record of 92%. The students have secured placements in companies such Standard Chartered, HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, ICICI Prudential and many more during the pandemic.
