Nowadays, graduating from B-schools is a craze among youths. We cannot judge the effectiveness of any Indian B-schools by the no of students that are being placed in MNC's at a high annual package. It's true that all these Indian b-schools focus on producing well-groomed managers and not the entrepreneurs but it's not actually the fault of those institutes, these days everyone wants a safe, secure and a high payable job. Youths don't want to take a risk as it is one of the main element of the business. I cannot say that all the Indian institutes are effective but I can say that those institutes which try to give more practical knowledge or let their students to apply their theoretical knowledge in the field are effective. Many institutes provide various opportunities to the students so that they can implement their knowledge in a creative manner to achieve their respective goals and that shows the effectiveness of the institutes.

Yes, we have the excellent & effective B-Schools in India. But these are only for getting the huge salary job. Former minister Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru had open these B-school for producing Entrepreneurs, not the managers but today this B-school are effective in only in producing managers, not entrepreneurs.

Business school no doubt is playing a vital role in the today's economy and most importantly it's the students who can learn more and more from it. B-Schools in itself says business schools, obviously, they will take money, it's the student who has to make out off that money and get the best possible results for them. Talking about the effectiveness of the B-schools in India, excluding the bottom one's no doubt they are providing with the best quality education and high placement packages, if you compare it with other government colleges, they are providing all possible practical knowledge and experience, it's the students who has to grab it by excelling them. At last it's not that easy to get into the top most B-schools one has to qualify cat or other OMET exams for that one is required to excel in every basic thing, further which adds to effective personality development by applying things practically, not like just mugging things up.

Hi, friends.

It's not only B-schools as a total if we take education in India is ain't that good. People with money can get a degree. It's the true statement. When it comes to business schools except most other business schools don't have that quality education. Nowadays without clearing cat exam students are admitted in some B-schools. The quality can be improved by compulsory 6 months training in industries and giving admission to those who clear cat or any such basic entrance. Without any prior steps taken, it can't be improved. The Indian minds are truly magnanimous if we are guided by good practical and proper way of knowledge we will excel like a star.

I appreciate the points given by all of you. But in my point of view, B-schools in India is no doubt more than of a business now. They are luring students to get them high-salary job and taking huge amount of fees. I think those who can afford it, it's good for them but the problem is they are not giving a proper education to the students. They are nothing more than copycats of Western-style B-schools. The knowledge imparted in these colleges are of very low standard. Instead of paying a huge amount students are not getting a good education. Jobs are not provided by these colleges will not be an issue if they provide good education which can empower students to get them a job by themselves.

They are more of focused on making them look like (grooming) an entrepreneur rather than building them one.

But in the end, we cannot ignore the fact that the exposure of becoming an entrepreneur is brought by these B-schools only, which I think is the only good point in all this.

Thank you.

Top B-schools like IIMs, FMS etc have designed effective course structure for the management students. Presentations, Slide Shows, video Lectures, Debate, Group Discussions are the part of their course work. In management schools, practical knowledge is imparted along with theoretical knowledge.

Now a days main aim of any B school is to earn money. Campus drives are happening every year so they hire some consultant who contact with all college consultant and recommend to the proper day. Even stiff competition going while having recruitment process. The person who knows Business management as well as interview Process can easily crack interview.

Rather those who can't feel corporate job and self career track they don't have any future in these competitive world. So now its student Responsibility to gather his courage and move on to recruitment process and just crack it.

My opinion for B-schools in India is that it is simply becoming a business these days. Instead of imparting proper education, knowledge and different skills required for managers they are simply attracting students by placements.

Business schools are now a days becoming placement agencies and students also started judging B-Schools on the basis of their placements not on the basis of curriculum and faculties, rather than concentrating on studies students concentrates only for placements because of this mindset sometimes they will not be good at concepts also and which will lead them no where. Even after getting a B.TECH degree students still go after b-schools for better placements.

I agree all of your views but now a days most of students are taking MBA by only attraction because students felt like get more salary package. Most of the students they don't have interest to take MBA but they are taking MBA. My conclusion is those who are interest on MBA that people place the Indian MBA position high.

The B-Schools in India are unable to groom their student's personality, providing them field knowledge. The only thing they do is providing them degree. That's why our industries are facing the lack of skilled employed and they have to arrange training programme of 6 months to a year for every new employ. This reduces the growth of industries and nation.

Definitely Indian B - Schools are effective in there own way, as when compared to B-schools Abroad, I think B-Schools in India prepare Students according to Indian markets and Indian economy.

So if one has to work in India or serve in India he/she should always go with Indian B-Schools, and yes we have some very elite class B-schools like all IIM's and some other Big names for Higher studies and they are nowhere less then any foreign B-school or University.

But Unfortunately majority of the Local B-Schools operated are just for the sake of business, and steps should be taken by the Government to Keep a watch on these Colleges and B-Schools.

Is'nt it !

Hi,

In my opinion in a developing country like INDIA need of B- Schools is very much because it develops Communication skills, Managerial Skills, Case Studies and provides practical knowledge for the business management. B-schools are remarkable but only few schools like IIT, IIM compete with global exposure. In abroad, working experience must required MBA, only after gaining working experience everyone will get to know real worth of doing MBA.

But there are so many Business schools in which only few percent are remarkable like IIM, Many schools have been open for only Business purpose so these schools may prove dangerous for students due to unemployment.

As of today, there are 4000 odd B-Schools in India of which only 2% have any credibility to their names. For the rest, it has become a business. With fees soaring as high as 15 lacs and the batch size being 500+ in some colleges, one can do the math how much business they gain.

Also, with lack of awareness amongst students and the tag of being an MBA it helps these B-Schools even more.

But in conclusion, I would say not all of them are ineffective as the top B Schools definitely help you in honing your communication, analytical and decision making skills and also give you a good ROI. Plus, the knowledge you gain never goes to waste.

But there needs to be a change wherein these business making B Schools can improve the way they function.

Effective?

Be it schools, universities or any xyz institutes they can never be effective. What really effect is what they cater i.e. education (study material). Even if you go to IIMs if the approach or study material is not worth, I don't think it can give what it is meant for.

So instead of any institutes students should be provided the study material and should be charged for the same not for the dress material.

Let the students do the education the way they want and along with they can continue gathering experience by working.

I am not opposing any body with there own views, I agree with other's point that B school gives platform to learn leadership skill, case studies, provide's practical knowledge but I have some question *why they giving fake information related placements (giving lots of companies name in their blog).

Why govt is giving permission & AICTE UGC giving affiliation to such colleges?

Why there is no restriction's ?

This is competitive era everybody want to take higher higher qualification.

If this B Schools attract students like this than they are not going to suffer but we are going to face problem & even country will face unemployment problem more and more.

SO my point is there should some restriction for B SCHOOLS.

B- schools in India are just like business these day. There many so called MBA colleges opened in every street in the city of India and it is very difficult to differentiate between colleges which are good or best. So because of that any one can do MBA from any college by giving a high amount of fees. But the education system in these b- schools is not so effective, so less companies comes to recruit students from these colleges. That's why these students have degree but no jobs. And it lead to unemployment.

Yes, business schools have a major role to develop the country. But they are try to develop them only, not develop the who are entering in to that schools. They just give the degree, but not giving the knowledge. So, there is need to develop the standards of that education system in business schools.

Hi friends,

B-schools in India have become an attractive and easy business in today's scenario. More and more institutes are mushrooming and students are attracted towards them by their placement ads and prestigious MBA tag. But still the real standard of study is maintained by some of the institutes only. The students of most general B-schools are seen as salesmen in their training or as agents of various finance companies. The increased number of schools and passed out students has reduced the value of a MBA degree. Students pay huge amounts of money to get into these schools but may or may not get jobs as expected.

So B-schools in India need to raise their standards to produce efficient and competent world class managers.

B-school are becoming a great business days because their main motive is to attract the student's main weakness i.e. job. So they attract student by giving the placement, hence all students are getting attracted upon them. So judge by yourself how effective is it?

I completely agree with the point that B-School has became a shortcut to get placed with hunky salary. I also agree with the point says B-School are running it as a business to fill their own pockets on the name of placement. But I want to ask a question that.. Will you join an institute that provides 100% placement or an institute with no placement ? Just ask this question to yourself.. Will you join ? You will not because you too want to earn a good salary soon after completion of MBA and whats wrong in that if you are getting assistance from experts who promote you to build your career.

Now coming to the quality of education that B-School is providing to their candidates. There isn't any organization left which teaches.. not even IIMs or IITs. They will just guide you. One more point with regard to MBA, no body can teach you Business Management. It need to be touched and felt. I am very much sure that a young man who just know English and has worked under his father in a organized shop can understand Business Administration (if study), better than a candidate who has come blindly by just cracking hefty entrance Exam. Now a days no college in India teaches engineering or business management, its you who should carry the entire course on your own shoulder. So where it matters, its matters in placement as well as the college tag.

Hello friends.

My Name Is Puja. I Think Indian B School is Trying to make its way in domestic country like India. Most of the schools are getting students by giving educational loan, placements offers. In reality during the time of placements desired placements are not being provided. Even the classes are not regular in time. Students who join b school to learn management, learns politics because the school itself doesn't provide proper planning and management to the students.

My opinion about B-Schools in India has not yet completely developed when compared to world-class. Only few schools like IIM, IIT compete with global exposure. In India people do MBA degree just for gaining artificial reputation. In abroad, working experience are must require for pursuing MBA. Only after gaining working experience he/she will get to know the real worth of doing MBA. Thus such system should be established in a country like INDIA. Surely Indian's can compete to world-class with this kind of system.

Now a days globalization is being processed so as student need more practical knowledge and good presentation skills. In India many of the people have good knowledge but they don't have good confidence when they are presenting their skills. In India we need to encourage the B-schools.

We have to provide special scholarship to the student who belongs to a poor family or below poverty line, because those type of students are not able to come up due to there family problems even though they have good skill and having enthusiastic struggle as compared to rich family. A. P. J. Abdul our president is one of them, who came from a poor family, like that many deserving students are there but they are not able to come due to their poverty so we have to focus on those type of guys even.

Today the Indian b schools are turning towards placement agencies more than imparting education. 1st of the the b-schools should not be rated, the no1 school will always have paid seats as a result the faculty is good but the students are least bothered as they have come on the basis of their income and not merit, secondly the lower colleges cannot get top of the line faculty so why should those students suffer?

Judging the student only on the basis of the entrance exam is pointless, business schools do not need maths scholars they need managers.

The schools should focus more on limited students not 400 students in one batch just to fill their pockets but actually provide knowledge.

Where as some of the b-schools offer case studies so that student's can gain practical knowledge instead of acquiring only theoretical knowledge. If we study in b-schools leadership qualities will be developed by presenting lot of seminar's in the college along with good communication skills. This makes student's of becoming an entrepreneur than a manager.
