Management education hasn't come of age in India'

Amit Kapoor

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.

Dear Sir
Thanks for sharing such important issue. Thats very true, Business Schools are mushrooming like anything in our country, which arises so many issues simultaneously:
1) With so many business schools in the country, ofcourse, they will be requiring so many students to fill up their seats, and for that so many b-schools even don't have any quality admission criteria too, which is an alarming situation for the market too.
2) With crowd of such MBAs who have flooded the market, somehow depreciating charm and value of this wonderful professional degree.
3) Apart from very good reputed b-schools, there are so many recently started b-schools every year which are just started as business or new venture but not for imparting effective management skills.
Thank you for sharing this post, now for sure will be interested to start a debate on this big issue.
thanks & regards
