To become a brand manager, you should preferably have an MBA degree with specialization in marketing. But, you cannot become a brand manager overnight. People generally begin as a part of the sales team. After a sustained good performance for two to three years in the core sales unit team of an organization, only the best and the brightest are promoted to assistant brand/ product manager and ultimately to brand manager. The competition is so tough that from a team of about ten people, only a couple make it to brand manager.
