Shimla-based Pranav Sharma is appearing for his boards next year. Like any other teenager, he is perplexed. His parents are successful businesspersons and want him to chart the same path, while Pranav is keenly interested in the medical sciences. “I wish there was a course that would be an amalgamation of medical sciences and business administration,” the 15-year-old would often wonder. Pranav spends all his free time searching the internet about career options and the best colleges/universities. His parents support him in this.
While the hunt was on, the family stumbled upon something called Junior Programmes offered by Mumbai-based startup Clever Harvey. The programmes are meant to enable kids from the age group of 13-18 years to explore the world of Junior MBA Technology, Junior MBA Strategy and Junior MBA Marketing, to name a few.
