HAITUS & RETURN

Its been too long since I last posted. There are no excuses; I should have found time to post. Many things have happened since I was last here. One, that stands out, is my return to TAPMI.

B Schools are heading for a crisis. My colleagues at the IIMs may not agree; but private B Schools are finding it difficult to survive. Moreover, Business Administration is fast turning out to be just another degree. Will there be a makeover? And when would it happen?

Another worrying factor is the fact that 85% of B School graduates aren't employable - they just do not possess the skills sets for the workplace. I have always maintained that student particpants have to be educated in life skills; as what they take to their workplace is 100% of their personality & probably just over 20% of what they are taught in class. Isn't it time the powers be take stock and suggest changes?

Will be back soon with more. Until then, wish you all a Very Happy Diwali!
