Management education hasn't come of age in India'
There's a lot of emphasis on job placements, but are B-schools being monitored for quality at all, asks Amit Kapoor
In a century that should be titled 'the Indian century', the world is indeed going through a tectonic shift, especially given the huge demographic dividend that India presents to the world.
The belief that India can be a talent supplier to the world is growing, and it has fuelled significant growth in the business school industry.
The growth was such that we saw an onslaught of various new institutions emerging over the last few years. India, today, has close to 2,500 business schools spread across the country. It is certainly heartening to see that management education has done well in the country. Yet, it still hasn't come of age.
It's fairly obvious that with the advent of business school education, and our fondness for it in general, we would see an emergence of an opportunity related to the ranking of business schools. We have close to two dozen rankings present in the country, which rank b-schools on various parameters, using different methods. This incidentally gives rise to a debate on whether rankings are a true reflection of quality at all. 'Management education hasn't come of age in India' - Rediff Getahead
