Delhi B- Schools and MBA Schools do more than a good job preparing their students to the demands of corporate world, equipping them with just the kind of skills their potential employer. B-School Survey makes one thing abundantly clear. Delhi may not have an IIM, but it really doesn’t need one. The Capital’s B-Schools in Delhi as well as MBA Schools do more than a good job preparing their students to the demands of corporate world, equipping them with just the kind of skills their potential employers will look for in every newbie in the work force.
Delhi- NCR has 138 B-Schools for MBA Education, but various survey agency, Indus Learning, pared the number down to 50 after a survey- based perception study that mapped where the institutes fared in the worldview of 400 potential recruiters, parents, alumni and students.
These 50 institutes then were contacted for fact files that provided data on everything of interest to potential students or recruiters — from faculty research details to placements records. The data from the fact files and the perception study were then cross- weighted to establish the final institute wise rankings.
The data that emerge from the survey establish beyond doubt that the Capital’s Business Schools are not fly-by-night operators or money- making machines. They have teachers with the right mix of industry and academia experience, tie-ups with international universities and well- stocked libraries; they have visiting faculty from their global partners; they keep upgrading their curriculum according to industry requirements; they have specialised programmes serving the needs of sectors such as telecom and power; and their placement partners include the best brands in the corporate world.
They fill up the demand supply gap, because the steady growth of the economy has created an insatiable demand for new managers. So in step the institutes that have been assessed in this survey.
Their drive for quality starts with their insistence that their professors must constantly be engaged in research. The IIPM, in fact, has an active publishing programme for its professors. IIPM believe no research is worth the effort if lies in a thesis format in some library. Constant industry interface is another key marker of a quality B-Schools in India.
Likewise, IMT- Ghaziabad’s internship programme is structured in a way that, every student is mentored and guided by a practising manager, a faculty member and an institute alumnus. IIT- Delhi’s MBA programme is equally applicable to the rest of the institutes. IMT- Ghaziabad’s MBA Courses is designed keeping in mind the changes in the business environment and the needs of the industry. Delhi- NCR’s B- Schools won’t disappoint you at least on this count.
