Entrepreneurship Then and Now!

If we are to speak of 'Entrepreneurship - Then and Now', we start with the question, how often have you heard or come across the word "entrepreneur" recently? Almost every other person irrelevant of their field is carrying the title of “entrepreneur”. Why? As Wikipedia defines, an entrepreneur is a person who starts, organises and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.

From a time to when leading a business centered on arranging the capital money, to now, where "entrepreneurship" is said to be a state of mind; business leadership has changed leaps and bound. Here are 3 major factors through which entrepreneurship has evolved over the years.

Diversity:

Gone are the days when businesses leaders evolved from the families. Today, establishing or leading a business doesn’t mean having ample of financial background or being the jack of that particular product or industry. While having the knowledge in these areas is still mandatory, there are business leaders coming from various walks of life. The leading positions in the management industry now have women, engineers, doctors, and even artists holding them. With young entrepreneurs who have the instincts for business leadership have been taking up courses like part time MBA causing the rise of a new wave called “Youngpreneurs”. To run and lead an organisation now is easy and that brings a diverse group of people to that position all thanks to the management studies made available through courses like part-time MBA.

Advancement of Technology:

Technology doesn’t spare the business world from the massive change that it brings. Studies say that 70% of the business decisions need to be data driven in today’s date. With ecommerce, automation, and other such innovative phenomenon, every organisation has more and more technical professionals on their radar. For e.g. Satya Nadella, the Chief Executive Officer of Microsoft, Sundar Pichai, the Chief Executive Officer of Google etc, are business executives while being an engineer too. With the help of part-time MBA courses, many innovators are themselves establishing and running their business with the ease of technology.

Globalization:

Globalisation along with technology has brought the world closer than ever. Entrepreneurship is no longer limited to or bound by the local scenario. In fact, thesedays several companies are going global-first. Many MBA part-time courses have curriculum based on the global business environment in today’s date. This is due to the fact that every organisation is looking to reach its zenith which is being a globally recognised brand. Unlike the old days, today, a business leader can take his company or product to several countries right from his location. India estimates over 59% of improvement in the global economic growth in the coming years making its CEOs the most confident about revenue growth in the coming years as compared to other countries.

While the business world is evolving, entrepreneurs are evolving at a rapid speed and leaving a mark at every innovative step of theirs. If you want to be a part of this dynamic and ever growing world, pave your way to becoming a successful business leader with one of our part-time MBA courses.


It was over a decade ago that the first online course was made available. Since then there have been many misconceptions floating around about online education. Comparisons have been made between traditional styles of learning and online methods. But the concept of learning at home is not new and has existed long before online education in the form of “correspondence courses”.  Today, traditional universities, such as Stanford and Harvard, have promoted accredited, online Ph.D. degree and professional degree programs like the part time MBA. With these top institutes backing online education, the concern about it seems to be dissolving.

So, here are a few myths and misconceptions about online education that are still prevalent and we intend to bust them in today’s article.

Myth #1: You’re on your own

Somehow people think that you won’t receive any support when pursuing online education. This myth doesn’t add up because the online method seeks to connect the tutor and student like never before. You become a part of the online learning community where you can talk to other students, trade notes and ask for help when you need it. Just because you don’t meet in a classroom doesn’t mean that professors aren’t there to help. If you need advice you send an email, talk to them over the phone or video call them –there are all sorts of ways to connect.

Myth #2: It isn’t engaging

This myth is a popular one and associates online education as a hands-off approach to learning. It can be scary to think that feedback isn’t available but this is not true. You’re still in a class with students and you can communicate throughout the week instead of waiting until lectures begin. In fact, there are more discussions in an online classroom than traditional ones. Don’t believe us? Many Institutes all over India have adopted a hybrid learning model. They combine online lectures with various offline events and gatherings to engage students. The ‘Online Education India 2021’ research states that Hybrid channels have “improved engagement levels” via their part time courses like MBA, PGDM, and technology courses.

Myth #3: Not every subject can be taught online

This is a popular misconception, too. It may have held some truth a decade ago, but technology has advanced since then and almost any subject can be taught online. The University of Washington has a course on Public Speaking, a skill that requires applied learning. But this is taught online through video lessons, allotted reading material and quizzes. It was one of their more popular courses and is freely available for anyone to pursue. Even something as renowned as an MBA course or performing arts like dance can be pursued part time.

Myth #4: I need to have expert knowledge of computers

There’s no reason to be a master at computers to learn online. All you need is basic computer knowledge since most actions are completed with a simple mouse click. The majority of courses have online induction packages that get your pc, laptop or other devices ready for learning. These guide you through the steps needed to set up the software. Not only that, but you receive full technical support from the support team throughout your online learning journey.

Myth #5: Online courses don’t help with getting a job

‘Online education in India 2021’ very simply states that professionals will need to stay relevant in the job market to increase their employability. Furthermore, online education will evolve the concept of continuous learning and soon become the mainstream option in relevant education.

Lastly, the course that will likely increase employability in tier 2 cities is the previously mentioned part time MBA courses, as stated in the research paper. Jaro Education provides a range of these kinds of courses as well as technology programmes to professionals and students alike. Visit the website to find out more.

Jaro Education takes the CSR Route to encourage Education

Calm over the horizon

Many years ago, I worked for my parents who own a video production company. Because it is a family business, you inevitably end up wearing many hats and being the czar of many different jobs. I mainly managed projects and worked as a video editor. On production, there were times that I was called on to work as an audio tech and was made to wear headphones on long production days. In those days, having a really good set of headphones that picked up every nuance of sound was essential to making sure the client got what they needed.

First impressions.

Naturally, my first impression of these headphones is based off of the look of them. They have a classic over-the-ear style that is highlighted by a blue LED light that indicates the power for the noise canceling. The padding on the ear pieces seems adequate for extended usage periods.

They are wired headphones, but the 3.5mm stereo mini-plug cable is detachable. Something else I noticed right of the bat was the very nice carrying case that comes with them. It has a hard plastic exterior with a soft cloth interior that helps to protect the surface of the headphones from scratches. I never truly appreciated cases for headphones until I started carrying them from place-to-place. Now I can’t imagine not having a case.

A perfect fit.

Once I gave the headphones a thorough once-over exam, I tried them on. As I mentioned, they have a classic over-the-ear style and just looking at them, the padding on the ear pieces seem adequate and the peak of the headband seemed to be a bit lacking, but you don’t really know comfort unless you try on the product. So, I slipped the headphones on and found them to be exquisitely comfortable.

Quality.

Now that I had the headphones on my head, I was finally ready to plug and play some music. I plugged the provided cable into the jack on the headphones and then the one on my iPhone 6. Then I called up Pandora. I tend to have a very eclectic music purview and have many stations set up for different moods. From John Williams to Fallout Boy, the sound quality of these headphones was remarkable. There is an amazing depth of sound and incredible highs and lows that make listening to music a truly breathtaking experience.

It’s safe to say that because of my unique professional experiences, I’ve tested out a lot of headphones.

In order to test how voices sounded, and the overall art of sound mixing, I pulled up Netflix on my iPad Air 2 and watched a few minutes of a movie to hear all the nuances of the film. None of them were lost. In fact, I ended up hearing sounds that I hadn’t heard before. Echoes…birds chirping…wind blowing through trees…breathing of the characters…it was very impressive what the headphones ended up bringing out for me.

I would highly recommend these to any sound mixing specialist.
