Indian MBA Programs
If your target is to just pick up an MBA degree, then this discussion is not for you. If you are a high achiever, then you would naturally gravitate towards a good MBA program, as multinational corporates would prefer their managers to have the business perspective developed by good business schools. These managers would be put on the fast track to quickly reach higher decision making positions. That’s what you covet ? Don’t you ?
Certain features distinguish a good MBA Program. If students have to develop a holistic business perspective, this is done best by peer learning and peer learning requires the predominance of the Case Approach to learning, especially with case-studies having a cross continental imprint. At the same time, the student body has to be rich in diversity. So when a good B.School makes its admission decisions, the focus is not on choosing the best students, but on choosing the best batch. The student body has to be rich in diversity in terms of domains represented, work experience range, nationalities and cultures, etc. This helps in benefiting from the experience and learnings of others and developing a cross-cultural sensitivity which is a hall mark of a good MBA Program. Moreover, in India, if a B.School is attracting foreign students and Indian students from distant states, then this itself tells positive things about the B.School.
A good Business School will have a good faculty member pool with the right mix of academicians and visiting faculty from the corporate world to give you the practical application of what you are being taught.
Premier B.Schools also have excellent tie ups with recruiting corporates and the admission decisions for the incoming batch is tuned with planned personnel needs of recruiting corporates. The tie-ups are extended for the in-company projects as well.
