Serv­ing the Use­ful Pur­pose for B-schools

Business Today - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

This refers to your spe­cial is­sue on In­dia’s Best B- schools ( October 22). It is a great com­pi­la­tion of im­por­tant pa­ram­e­ters like place­ment records, in­fras­truc­tural fa­cil­i­ties, and tech­no­log­i­cal upgra­da­tion. The rank­ing process should also take into ac­count fac­tors like tie- ups with well known in­dus­trial houses, on- the- job train­ing pro­grammes, an emo­tional quo­tient ver­sus in­tel­li­gence quo­tient anal­y­sis through sci­en­tific eval­u­a­tive tests, etc. More­over, in today’s chang­ing job mar­ket sce­nario, prompt ac­qui­si­tion of new skills by the stu­dents needs to be fo­cused as well. How­ever, some col­leges have not par­tic­i­pated in your sur­vey. But for a coun­try which has had a his­tory of man­age­ment ed­u­ca­tion of over six decades, it is un­for­tu­nate that no In­dian busi­ness school is any­where near the top 10 global in­sti­tu­tions mea­sured by var­i­ous rank­ings. But ul­ti­mately, such sur­veys serve one use­ful pur­pose for the B- schools – that is as a tool for mar­ket­ing and ad­ver­tis­ing their stand­ing in the ed­u­ca­tional field vis- a- vis other com­peti­tors. Ku­dos to your en­tire team for do­ing a great job. J. S. Broca, New Delhi
