This question seems to be a bit weird, to be honest. MBA itself is a multidisciplinary degree which instils multifaceted skills in you, like management and leadership. It is considered the best degree to go closer to rapid growth within a professional environment.
There are innumerable post-MBA success stories, so are the failure ones. This question emerges once an MBA degree fails to pay off as per your expectations. What you need to do in such a context is:
Supplement your knowledge-
Check what makes you a fit for the industry. You need to earn additional certifications that are trending, like digital marketing strategy, brand positioning & management, data science, Big Data analytics, etc.
Analyze your industry-readiness-
How ready you are for the industry? This thing needs to be analyzed by you thoroughly. Afterwards, you should prepare yourself accordingly. Once you are ready for the industry, the recruiters will pick you up. Courses like personality development and interview training might work for you.
Is an MBA really relevant to your career goals?-
It's better to do nothing rather than making a half-hearted effort. First of all, you shouldn't have done an MBA, if you were sceptical about its usefulness in achieving your career goals. You should make a U-turn and pursue what paves your way towards your career goals.
You can go for a PhD-
If the field of academics attracts you then go for PhD post your MBA. Choose the subject of your interest and pursue a doctorate in any of the subjects you studied while an MBA. After completing PhD, your chances are bright to nurture a career in the field of academics.
Well, I personally don't think you need to do any further course if you have religiously invested your 2 precious years in MBA. This course is industry-oriented and allows you to amplify your learning in leaps and bounds.
Which is the best course after an MBA?

What do you think of executive MBA after MBA? I mean, let's say you completed your MBA 10 years ago, it was a successful mission and you got a job in a company/ industry of your liking. Would there be a need to refresh your knowledge at a certain point in your career through executive MBA or certificates?
