hey everyone :)

if you wanna know more about future of MBA education and carrer :) check out the link below:)

https://soundcloud.com/hbrideacast/616- ... ium=social

Scott DeRue, the dean of University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, says the old model of business school education is gone. It's no longer good enough to sequester yourself on campus for two years before heading out into the world of commerce. DeRue discusses how the perceived value of an MBA education is changing in the digital era, and how MBA programs are innovating in response to individual and company demands.

cheers

Bright and full of hope! MBA is one of the most sought after degrees in the world. It is true that 6 out of 10 CEOs of the Fortune 500 companies don’t have and MBA degree. So why do people take up an MBA? Reason is simple. The skillset is generic and the knowledge base can be applied to any industry. MBA is usually not like an engineering degree which is highly specific to a field. MBAs can fit into any industry. Most MBA graduates can adapt to both horizontal shifts, vertical shifts, industry shifts as well as function shifts. Adaptability improves the ability to survive in the modern world and having an adaptable person leading a project or a team helps it tide through the roughest storms. Hence most MBAs make great leaders. The future is bright and full of hope for those ready to adapt and if course continue learning since learning never stops!

Future of MBA education in India:

Being the world’s second-most populous country, India is the world’s largest provider of management education. There are many things which are lacking in the education system of our country and it’s the time to take a call on this matter. Reasons being the eyes of the world are on us now and we have to set an example in front of them and for our own future generation. The population of our country should be the utter most important asset for us, not the liability and it should be utilized in such a way that the country gets benefitted by every one of them. May it be Agriculture, Education, Financial, and all the prevailing sectors in our country, let everyone contribute to the ever needed growth of the country. We can take the examples of the countries which are making use of their population wisely and getting benefits financially and economically.

Let’s talk about the Education sector as this blog is mainly for the conditions and future of MBA graduates in India. According to AIMA, the quality of education offered in Indian Business Schools is of substandard quality and because of that many are struggling to stay afloat. All-India Management Association, a national management-education industry body, calls “abysmally low” to the B-Schools where the strength of the students is 60 or less. Amidst the tens of thousands of management graduates churned out by the 5,500 B-schools in the country, only 7 per cent turn out to be employable, says a study conducted by ASSOCHAM. Now a days leaving aside few IIM’s , remaining B-schools are trying hard to get their students placed in the good multinational firms or some good companies in the domestic companies which are making their names at the Global Level.

The MBA graduates after spending lakhs and lakhs of money for the education which they think will make them ready for the corporate world and future opportunities gets landed up in distress as they get only 20,000-30,000 per month and that too only if they find the placement suitable to them. This is the worrying part and it has to be taken seriously because many students who don’t get admission in Tier-1 College joins nowhere as they know about the placement records of the B-schools. And they appear again for Top level MBA entrance next year and strive for better college. Because of this and economic conditions between 2014-16, almost 220 B-schools have been shut down all over India. Such problems have the potential to hold back a country that will need ever-more good-quality managers. According to AIMA, “By 2025 [the] Indian management education system should clearly emerge as the second best in the world, second only to that of [the] USA.”

There are many ways to tackle down the ongoing problems in the world of MBA education and secure the future of MBA graduates. Most importantly being the increase in the Faculty-student ratio as more the focus on the students by the faculty, better will be the overall personality development and skill building. Then follows, Upgradation of Infrastructure, Benchmarking and rankings, and lastly improve their placements through nurturing talents for Regional and Local Markets.

I feel there is no much differences between full-time MBA and distance MBA, now a days people have the internet access and can easily get help from faculty and can access learning material. Coming to scope of distance MBA course its all depends on the institution you choose, if you can put enough time and effort into it, a distance MBA course can give you all the essential knowledge and experience required for building successful career.

The MBA program is a case study for disruption.

Over time the program has been geared to more and more career paths (finance, consulting, entrepreneurship, etc.) to the point that it both overserves students by giving them more options (features) than they can ever take advantage of and also underserves them by not being focused enough on their specific career path. My sense is that the future of an MBA will be much more targeted programs, like the immersive programs that have helped people learn skills to transition into tech.

dave13 finished GSB in 2015. Had an awesome experience. That said, I think the MBA model in general is in for a bumpy ride. You?

I have read in one article that MBA will change in these five ways:

1. There’ll be more of a focus on soft skills
2. Online MBAs will become more and more popular
3. Technology will change the classroom environment
4. Specialization trend to continue
5. Business schools will work more closely together

hey ndewilde nice to hear from you, and sorry for my late reply I didn't notice you tagged me. Great to hear about awesome experience :)

My bumpy adventure still continues :) I think if one goes to bschool one need to apply to TOP schools, otherwise it doesn't make sense for someone with 10+ experience.

what are your thoughts on this ? :-)
