    By way of achieving his goal/ On the way of achieving his goal

    Hello,

    Can we use "on the way of achieving something" a goal instead of "by way of achieving something"? What other alternatives can we use?

    A- "By way of achieving his goal, he took a couple of courses in the field of management"
    B- "On the way of achieving his goal, he took a couple of courses in the field of management"
    C- "In the direction of achieving his goal, he took a couple of courses in the field of management"

    Many thanks in advance.

    That alone probably wouldn't be enough to achieve his goal.
