There is a perceptible change in the business of management education in India. On the one hand, the number
of aspirants is on the decline and on the other, there are B-schools that are shutting down their operations. The
shakeout forces us to deliberate upon what it takes to build a great B-school and the line that separates the institutes of excellence from the fly-by-night schools concerned only with profit

  • A good debate. But the reason being the sub standard faculty and the poor stuff enrolled.This was a great mismatch. Added to it is the lack of basic skills . The result is not unexpected. It was a classic example of perfect cometition and the free entry , free exit mode.. But the remaining school are not necessarily the best. For the expectation of good faculty , more hard work on the part of student and gloomy business prospect demand that the churning will continue .

  • www.peoplematters.inTHE B-SCHOOL DIVIDEThere is a perceptible change in the business of management education in India. On the one hand,the number of aspirants is on the decline and on the other, there are B-schools that are shuttingdown their operations. The shakeout forces us to deliberate upon what it takes to build a great B-school and the line that separates the institutes of excellence from the fly-by-night schoolsconcerned only with profit.Fly-by-night operators, who joined the B-school education bandwagon only to mint money, will finallybe weeded out and quality B-schools upholding the values of excellence in education will survive andscale up.The shakeout is likely to be fuelled by the awareness that many b-schools in the country do not havethe required levels of faculty, curriculum and infrastructure.
