Placements In Professional Colleges

  1. 1. Placements in Professional Colleges Hordes of students across the country plan on professional courses like MBAs, specialized diplomas and all types of engineering degrees. Till not so long back the competition for many of these courses was stiff and based on merit. The last few years however have seen a huge burgeoning of private educational institutions offering all kinds of professional course for a hefty fee. The market is suddenly flooded with seats and students no longer have to fall over each other for the IIMs and large regional colleges. If their parents can afford it or they are willing to take a student loan, most students can easily afford the fees to a private B School. Unfortunately from what we see, few really should be at these courses and are there only to pad up their CVs and get the educational institution to give them a job. This is the prime reason why students choose a professional institution solely on the bases of whether they will get placement. Placement is of course important. We all burn the midnight lamp and spend years of sacrifice so that we prosper professionally and economically, but to do a course solely for economic benefit, not apply oneself during the course and ask the educational institution to guarantee a job is down right arrogance on the part of most students. If one applies oneself on the course in preparation of the competition ahead, there is no reason why most students can’t secure a job on their own merit. The task of any educational institution is to teach and prepare their students for the task ahead, beyond that it is up to a student, from where then has this situation arisen, where in students want a job assurance for joining the course. Most educational institutions too feel hard pressed to advertise placements as it is this factor that fills their batch. Part of the answer lies in that there are more professional seats available than needed. Sometimes the educational institution may not be prepared to fulfill its part of the ‘academic’ bargain as it is ill equipped on various aspects, including laboratories and poor teaching staff. Poor quality infrastructure in an educational institution, admitting poor quality students and then attempting to place these poorly trained students can turn in to a vicious cycle for both students and institution. During this time of recession many of you will be planning on studying further, if you are, stop for a while and question your true motivation for doing a course. Will the course help you get a better position in a company, will you succeed on your own steam. Marketing divisions of most educational institutions are like any other marketing
  2. 2. divisions; they promise you the moon until your join the course and later show you the fine print. If you are planning to do a course while working or by taking a year or two off, ensure you are spending your valuable time with a reputed educational institution. Those students who have it in them even get there through self study and experience, but that’s an article for another day.
