  • 17. Looking For MBA In India Getting The Best Course For You
  • 18. Difference Between MBA & PGDBM Due to Indian Law: Only Universities (Delhi Univ, Pune Univ etc.) & their affiliated colleges can offer an MBA Mumbai University offers MMS Reputed Private Colleges, like IIMs, Indian School of Business, Symbiosis etc. can only offer PGDBM Most companies consider PGDBM equivalent to MBA for hiring
  • 19. EVERYONE is getting a Management Diploma 15 years ago, being a graduate was enough Today, even a PGDBM is not enough More than 1600 management colleges Everyone vying for the same jobs However, most will not get a good job after their PGDBM
  • 20. Why? Only 23% of management graduates have industry ready skills (Mercer Consulting Survey) This is after spending lakhs on a management course that is supposed to make them industry ready Most companies need to retrain management graduates once they join their organization Industry requires a large range of skills not offered by management institutes
  • 21. Industry Skills Needed Soft skills required - Attitudes * Enthusiasm * Ethics & value system * Inter personal Relationships * Team work * Leadership Creative skills required - Innovation * Lateral Thinking * Creativity * Visualization * Aesthetics Communication skills required - Active Listening * Verbal * Speed Reading * Use of Body Language * Presentation * Communication * Coaching, Mentoring Organizing skills required - Manage Time, Energy, Resources & Risk * Prioritize work * Sort Data/ Object * Identify & analyze alternatives and take Decisions * Predict, Monitor & Control Outcomes Thinking skills required - Systems Thinking * Lateral thinking * Creative thinking Presentation skills required - Language * Logical Flow * Poise/ Body Language * Clarity * Tone & volume * Use of Visuals * Interpersonal skills required - Personal Styles/ profiles * Leadership/ Follower-ship * Trust & Faith * Giving & Taking Feedback Team work skills required - Importance of teams * Purpose * Place * Power * Plan * People * Process * Performance Personal Productivity skills required - Personal Mastery * Time Management * Prioritize * Organize * Details Life long Learning skills required - Learning styles * Learning techniques * Tools Attitudes required - Enthusiasm * Ethics & Integrity * Professionalism
  • 22. Why Can’t Management Colleges Provide The Training Needed? Mumbai University Curriculum has not changed over the years AICTE requires colleges to have full time professors with no industry experience They cannot teach what industry wants because they have no experience in industry “All employers train college students after hiring them. Twenty-five per cent of industry expenditure comprises training for newly hired professionals. This shows that colleges do not make their students fully employable, which is why additional training is required,” - Snehalata Deshmukh, former vice-chancellor of Mumbai University.
  • 23. Some Don’t Want to Change.. Y.C. Halan, former Editor, Financial Express- “Many business schools are run by politicians. Due to political pressure, AICTE has granted recognition to many colleges that do not meet the standards. Many recognized institutions have sub-standard faculties, non-existent libraries, sub-optimal computer facilities and poor industry linkages. Many of them also charge high fees. AICTE has seldom initiated action or withdrawn approvals to such institutions.” Some Management Institutes earn up to Rs. 600 CRORE income per year, tax free!
  • 24. Is AICTE recognition necessary? Some Management Institutes NOT Recognized by AICTE – – Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (Ranked top 10 B school in India, ranked #20 internationally) – S.P. Jain Institute of Management, Mumbai – ICFAI Business School, Mumbai – ITM, Navi Mumbai, etc. Why have reputed management institutes NOT applied for AICTE recognition?
  • 25. A Report By Business Today magazine says: Accreditation procedures followed by AICTE are non-transparent, arbitrary and sometimes dysfunctional Many colleges openly charge AICTE with corruption and bribe taking Faculties at many AICTE recognized technical institutes lack proper qualifications Many AICTE recognized colleges have sub- standard course content with the result that they are unable to meet the skilled manpower requirements of industry
  • 26. What do educationists say about AICTE? “Indian School of Business doesn’t want accreditation from AICTE because it (AICTE) will then start interfering in its course content, batch sizes, student intake, and even the sizes of their buildings.” – Gurucharan Das (respected management guru) “Our destinies are being shaped by people who do not have the remotest idea of education. Everyone at AICTE is busy doing nothing” – S.N Mishra (Dean, MAIT, New Delhi) “AICTE measures quantity, not quality. During inspections, it wants details about things like the size of faculty and classrooms. But what matters to students is the quality of education and AICTE hasn’t done enough in this regard.” – Atul Chauhan (Dean, Amity University) Kapil Sibal (Minister for HRD) has recommended closing down AICTE & has suspended its chairman for taking bribes
  • 27. The Bottom Line Most of the new, high quality management institutes have NOT gone for AICTE recognition AICTE rules prevent innovative curriculum, industry faculty and international tie ups An AICTE recognized college CAN NOT give a high quality management education This is why there are so many unemployable management graduates from AICTE recognized institutes!
  • 28. Your Career Choice If you plan to do a PhD or apply for a government job, then you need to go to an AICTE recognized college. If you want a good job in a well known company, then you should look at the quality of education & faculty provided. Companies hire students based on the quality of training they receive NOT on the government recognition of the college
  • 29. Many Indian Management Diplomas Not Recognized Internationally You may want to work abroad May want to work in multinational More foreign companies entering India Companies prefer global qualifications & global skills Lack of global recognition is why institutes have to depend on PR to get graduates job placement. What about second job?
