Dear Tanushree,
Congratulations for graduating with a diploma.
I would suggest that if you wish to launch your own brand, just going in for a course will not give you much. Rather it would be better to take up a job with any of the known brand. Working there, will give you practical things like, understanding the consumer, marketing strategies, budgeting, promotions, hiring employees etc. Once you are clear about all these aspects and have a good amount of experience of about 2 - 3yrs, then if you launch your own brand I am sure it will be a great success.

All the best!
