    Technology has transformed the world as we know. From transport to healthcare and from education to business, we see its impact in nearly every facet of our lives. This, in turn, has created exciting career opportunities abroad. There are several new-age courses that cater to the demand for skilled professionals in emerging industries and technology globally. Here are some noteworthy examples:

These courses focus on teaching algorithms, deep learning, natural language processing, and computer vision, which can lead to job opportunities in fields like robotics, automation, healthcare, and finance.

Specialised courses in cybersecurity can equip students with the skills to protect data, networks, and systems from cyber-attacks. The demand for cybersecurity professionals is high globally, and there are opportunities in both public and private sectors.

    Blockchain technology: Blockchain technology has gained prominence with the rise of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. This technology offers secure and transparent solutions for various industries such as finance, supply chain management, healthcare, and more. Courses on blockchain tech can provide students with the skills required to develop blockchain applications and work on decentralized systems.

    Digital marketing: With the increasing importance of having a solid online presence, digital marketing skills are highly sought after. Courses in digital marketing cover topics such as social media marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing, and analytics. These skills can open doors to job opportunities in global marketing agencies and companies.

    Pursuing studies in International Business can also prove advantageous for job opportunities abroad. This is because it imparts knowledge and skills that are sought-after in the global marketplace. International business courses offer a broad understanding of global markets, economies, and cultural differences. This knowledge is valuable for companies operating internationally or seeking to expand their operations globally. Employers often value candidates who have a global perspective and can navigate the complexities of international trade.

    Cross-cultural communication: International business courses emphasize cross-cultural communication and understanding. In today’s interconnected world, companies are increasingly looking for employees who can effectively communicate and collaborate with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. These skills are particularly valuable in multinational companies and organisations with a global reach.

    Market entry and expansion: Companies looking to enter new markets or expand their existing operations abroad require individuals who understand the complexities of international trade, market entry strategies, and global business environments. By studying international business, students can gain knowledge about market analysis, entry modes, international marketing, and strategies for managing operations in different countries.

    International trade and supply chain management: International business courses often cover topics related to global trade, logistics, and supply chain management. These skills are highly relevant for companies involved in import-export operations, global sourcing, and international logistics. Understanding the intricacies of international trade can make individuals valuable assets to organisations engaged in global commerce.

    Networking opportunities: Studying international business provides opportunities to network with professionals and peers from various countries. Building a strong international network can be advantageous when seeking job opportunities abroad. These connections can provide insights into global job markets, introduce students to potential employers, and open doors to international internships or job placements.

Proficiency in a second or third language can significantly enhance job prospects abroad, as it enables effective communication with local stakeholders and navigate language barriers.

    International immersion programs (IIPs) and student exchange programs (SEPs): In many business schools, an opportunity is offered to go to an IIP or SEP, allowing students to gain hands-on experience in global business settings. These experiences can provide valuable practical skills, cultural immersion, and exposure to different business practices, which can make students more competitive in the global job market.

    When pursuing a career in international business, it’s important to stay updated on global economic trends, international trade policies, and cultural dynamics in different regions. This knowledge, combined with the skills acquired through studies, can increase the chance of finding job opportunities abroad. To help meet the demand for competent tech and international business professionals, top B schools offers PGDM/MBA programmes in Financial Management, Big Data Analytics and International Business. These courses are designed to equip students with in-demand professional skills. They comprise a blend of theoretical and practical learning, industrial visits, interactions with experts, and an International Immersion Program and Student Exchange Programs for full-time students at a partner institution abroad.
