Management Education in India: The Changing Scenario & the Way Forward

The Indian economy is growing at a fast pace creating considerable opportunities in the field of IT, manufacturing, pharma, etc. But we also have to realize that a rapid economic growth through these sectors can happen only with the help of amply skilled managers, which will give the country a desired impetus for the development of each sector. This is the reason why more and more business management schools are springing up in the nation. Management education is at its boom in India with more than 1000 business schools offering the same.

Besides, India’s new educational policy – Foreign Universities Bill further means a hike in the number of foreign business schools in the country leading to better education with the exchange of global ideas. You will be, however, surprised to know that an Indian MBA or even Indian diplomas in management, for that matter, are globally listed far better than any other Asian one. Why? Because India prefers to educate in English, which is the global language not only when it comes to syllabus but also when it comes to exchanging of brainstorming sessions through collaboration with business schools abroad. This doesn’t happen in other countries, like China and Japan, where they teach in their national language only. 

The second factor that gives India an upper edge in terms of management studies is the price of education. India is providing world-class education at minimal prices. No wonder even American and European students are coming to India to attain high-quality management education at cost-effective prices. The placement of students studying in India as well as Indian students in topnotch workplaces like the World Bank, Apple, Google, IBM, McKinsey, Accenture, Adobe, etc., further confirms and validates the quality of world-class education that India provides.

Nevertheless, India has a long way to go to retain this reputation; and for this, it is important that management institutions in the nation adopt and follow the global standards of education and incorporate the following in their infrastructure and pedagogy:

  • Make management education student-centric, not faculty-centric
  • Involve in Industry collaboration to hone up the practical skills of the students via internship/training
  • Organize regular practical training at a related management industry to help the students capture the right pulse
  • Craft the management curriculum in line with the latest industry trends, standards, and practices
  • Incorporate digital education, which is a must in the current scenario, whether to train students or the faculty
  • Have faculty with diversified experience. Gone are the days when the faculty used to remain restricted to just teaching. Today, they should diversify to training, research, and consultancy.
  • Engaging students in seminars, etc., where industry experts impart them with current knowledge. 
  • Globalize Education: This can only be done by collaborating with foreign universities. India’s upgraded education policy will go a long way to help do this.
  • Replace most of the theory-based education slowly yet steadily with practical-based education as only this comes handy when the students look for jobs in the corporate world outside. 
  • R&D based collaboration: Constant research and development, whether in the industry or its related education, is a must and thus it is important that the curriculum at a management school keeps updating with the changing demands of the industry. This can be achieved only when a management school collaborates with the big-wigs of the industry to walk hand-in-hand to create world-class management graduates/postgraduates. 

Times have changed and what did wonders in the past may prove useless in the future. Thus creating new and better courses and customizing them as per the interest of the industry as well as the students is the need of the current management education system. And if the Indian management education has to stay world-class, it has not only to challenge it but also reinvent itself from time to time to meet the modern needs of the dynamic global business environment.  

Every industry needs to come forward to help improve management education with each passing year and the government has to provide ample financial support as well as policy support for research and development to meet the needs of the education sector. Only with the collaboration of all stakeholders, including industry experts, quality educators, keen students, quality educational institutions, strong government as well as thinkers and global business experts, there is a surety that management education in India will stay world-class and only get better with time.

We, at the J.K. Lakshmipat University, established in the pink city, Jaipur, Rajasthan, have been standing as one of the strongest pillars of the education sector in the country with our world-class, student-centric, career-oriented management education. We offer management programs at undergraduate, postgraduate, as well as doctoral levels, which are aimed at enabling the students to transform into efficient management professionals and leaders of tomorrow.

The management education at JKLU is based on a very strong, industry-vetted curriculum that not only provides the students with clear insights on the current business scenario but also incorporates hands-on working experience that helps them gain clarity on each and every concept learned.

JKLU – Working Towards the Holistic Development of Students Ever Since

When it comes to the literal sense, holistic education refers to the philosophy of education based on the premise that each individual finds his/her own identity, meaning, and purpose of life by connecting to the community, nature, and with a deep connection to humanitarian values like peace and compassion. The education system in India, which follows the Indian Sanskriti, has always remained focused on the concept of holistic development of students, right since the ancient times. However, somewhere down the line, the educational institutes had lost the essence of holistic education and became more and more academics oriented. The fact, though, remains that it is actually the concept of holistic education that is necessary for enabling the all-inclusive development of students in the true sense. For apt growth of students, it is important that they are given an environment that nurtures and supports their creative ideas and visions besides enabling them to excel on the academic fronts. The environment must be such that each individual student grows up to be a leader of tomorrow.

In order to ensure a holistic development of the students, educational institutions in the country have now started bringing in various adaptions to the classroom teaching techniques and their pedagogy. We, at the J.K. Lakshmipat University, are among the very few educational institutes in India that have been successfully walking along the lines of disseminating holistic education to the students. At J.K. Lakshmipat University, the motto is not just to churn out good students but to feed them the treasure of knowledge that enhances their abilities to become world leaders of tomorrow. The university focuses on an all-around development of the students and not just on imparting academic knowledge. JKLU believes that it is the university’s responsibility to make the educational years at the campus for each student the most fulfilling years of their life. The university aims at transforming the students into industry-ready professionals before they even step out in the actual corporate world.

J.K, Lakshmipat University understands that it has a responsibility towards the society as a whole and not just the education industry. With experts leading the institution, students at JKLU are taught the importance of working towards a social change and contributing towards the national interest. The Community Development Centre at JKLU keeps organizing various activities for its students, such as Blood Donation Camps, Plantation camps, and support for disadvantaged children to build a positive humane side in them. The students, through the various activities and events at the university, are sensitized towards the needs of the society along with their career-driven obligation as a responsible citizen of the country.

At J.K. Lakshmipat University, the students are given the opportunity to communicate and interact with the top executives from various industries that enable them to consider the purpose and meaning of their lives on a deeper level, while at the same time also giving a thorough thought to their ultimate professional goals. The popular event ‘Manthan’ organized at JKLU is also intended to enable the students to gain thorough domain knowledge and learn from the experiences of the corporate executives on various themes regarding the latest trends in the Indian business industry. The guests at the event share with the students their mantras of management of business and life and share their go-to guide for maintaining a successful work-life balance. The event acts as an important part of a student’s educational years where they learn from the real-time experiences of corporates and not just from the print material. It helps them cope with the ever-changing industry and still stay ahead of changes while managing to develop their own techniques of survival.

The co-curricular activities on the other hand at the J.K. Lakshmipat University are designed in a way that the students are encouraged and taught to plan, organize, and execute various activities on their own. The university provides the students with the basic support while empowering them to use their planning, teamwork, and inclusive leadership skills to come up with ideas for different events based on a range of themes and categories. The reason for doing the same is to allow the students to get exposure to the outside world and learn the ways and means of getting a job done from start to finish. The sense of achievement that follows becomes an added advantage for the students. The activities act as an inspiration for many, giving them an insight into what they seek for themselves in their future. Many times it so happens that an idea while planning an activity becomes a seed that later grows into a beautiful career path for a student. Therefore, at JKLU, students don’t only learn from their books but also from their own thoughts and ideas to create a unique future for themselves.

By being a student at J.K. Lakshmipat University, a student not only focuses on the educational aspects of life but also learns a lot about himself/herself through the various activities and events organized at the campus. At JKLU, we focus on the overall growth of students through the philosophy of a holistic education system. It is indeed a matter of pride for us that the students who graduate from JKLU, with their sheer dedication and commitment, outshine in the professional world and successfully bring accolades for their superior skills and talent to themselves, to the university, as well as to the nation.

JKLU – Nurturing Strong Entrepreneurship Skills in Students

With countries across the world facing economic challenges, it is important that governments incorporate and encourage entrepreneurial activity to a greater extent. As there is a direct correlation between entrepreneurial activity in the country and its economic development, the industrial world, along with the governments, have started recognizing the impact of new businesses on social and economic growth as well as the employment levels. Moreover, entrepreneurs and businesses play a vital role in fostering financial and human resources in the society. As a result, more and more successful young entrepreneurs are needed for a developing country like India to meet the growing demands of the economy. Nurturing strong entrepreneurship skills in students, right from their higher education, can give them the inevitable power to think and create innovative ideas to emerge as entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

Entrepreneurship is the capability and willingness to develop and manage a new business venture profitably, identifying the risks and opportunities. In today’s economic scenario, it is necessary for students to develop strong entrepreneurial thinking and skills to do things with courage and confidence and ditch the corporate rat race to become a successful entrepreneur. It is the responsibility of the education system to provide a conducive environment for acquisition of entrepreneurship skills and motivate young aspirants to become successful entrepreneurs.

Why are entrepreneur skills important?

When it comes to succeeding the complex business world of today, entrepreneurship skills becomes a crucial component. Students should be inculcated with strong entrepreneurship skills as a part of education to help them think out of the box to establish startups and bring their innovative ideas to life.

Entrepreneurship skills, perhaps, enhance the value of knowledge, by providing the ability to integrate the academic know-hows with real-life business situations. Some of the key entrepreneurship skills include taking the initiative, problem-solving, flexibility, adaptability, self-awareness, and resilience. Many universities have started recognizing the need for these skills and are creating opportunities for students to attend events, courses, workshops, and training that facilitate the development of these entrepreneurship skills.

Acquisition of entrepreneurship skills at the earlier stage of education will help students in mastering it. The more frequently they are exposed to these entrepreneurship skills, the more entrepreneurial they will become in later years of life.

Building Entrepreneurial Skills

Entrepreneurial skills, as a part of life skills, can be inculcated from various dimensions but the best way is through educational institutions. Educators and faculty members can help motivate students to grow with an enterprising spirit so that they can accept new challenges, find opportunities, develop management capability, and overcome external/internal barriers within the business environment.

Building entrepreneurship skills include imparting a mix of technical skills, management skills, and personal maturity skills – such as self-awareness, accountability, creativity and emotional stability – all of which equips students with the ability to take risks, and become innovative, change-oriented, and persistent individuals. Developing the right set of entrepreneurship skills help students recognize the social and economic opportunities and act upon them, thus maximizing their chance for experiential learning.

Developing entrepreneurship skills means exposing students to real-life business situations and risks and teaching them to analyze them.

  • By encouraging participation in case studies, workshops and industry projects, students can be equipped with the knowledge to relate theoretical concepts and content with real business challenges.
  • Guest lectures from industry experts and professionals can help students have an engaging industry-oriented session and add practical insight into the course content.
  • Educational institutions can aid students in business/product launches by working in tandem with aspiring graduates and helping them get funds and research to build their business ideas.
  • Also, international exchange programs at educational institutions expose students to varied cultures and professional backgrounds, allowing them to understand business operations from a global perspective.

So, the role of universities and their courses in building entrepreneurship skills is inevitable. The fact is that if you are committed to launching a successful enterprise with your business idea, a degree in entrepreneurship can certainly help embarking on a business easier. Indeed, a college/university environment can provide you with all the resources and research information to bring your ideas to life and most importantly can give access to experts in a variety of fields.

In that direction, J.K. Lakshmipat University, a renowned educational arm of the J.K. Group, provides students the cutting-edge of holistic learning to develop entrepreneurs of tomorrow with globally relevant and actionable intelligence.

The Valuable Academia – Industry Interface at JKLU

According to one of the latest United Nations (UN) report, India has the world’s largest population of youth. While around 65% of our population is below the age of 35 years, more than half of the total people in India is below the age of 25. As such, we have more than 50 Lakh students graduating out of college every year. However, the sad part is that in another study, it has been found that a large percentage Indian youth are considered unemployable by corporates and this is primarily because they are considered to lack the basic skills and practical knowledge required to take on the job responsibilities. Due to the expenses that have to be incurred in training the workforce, corporates prefer employing those who already have the skills and knowledge pertaining to the industry. This is why it has become of the utmost necessity for the education system of the country to change with the changing needs and requirements of the economy and the industries. If leveraged properly and to our advantage, this huge young population can have game-changing impact on not just the Indian economy but economies the world over. Proper skill development and training facilities need to be set up and education system is required to be revamped to incorporate practical knowledge into the course structure so that the graduates are better equipped to work efficiently and successfully in the industry.

We, at the J.K. Lakshmipat University, being an advert of the J.K. Organization, understand the importance of the industry-academia partnership for the growth and benefit of students. Our ‘learning and understanding’ based curriculum has been deliberately designed to enable the students to gain detailed know-how of the standards and trends in the industry even before they actually step into the corporate world outside.  The course structure has been sculpted keeping in mind the needs and demands of the industry and focuses at instilling the students with the skill set, knowledge, and the practical exposure that is necessary for them to be absorbed by the industry and perform well to be successful in their respective domain of work. The University lays emphasis on hands-on experience and learning-by-doing and offers ample opportunities to its students through internships and intensive project work.

J.K. Lakshmipat University believes that Academia-Industry Interface is of great importance in the knowledge-driven society of the 21st century, where students from various backgrounds pursuing different professional courses are required to be well acquainted with the basic operational knowledge of the industry. The University ensures that its students get an opportunity to interact directly with the industry experts and learn from their valuable experiences and insights and hence regularly host a lot of activities such as guest lectures, seminars, case studies, presentations, discussions, industry internships, industrial visits, industry research projects, conferences, etc.

The University hosts Guest lecture series where eminent people from the industry are invited to speak to the students and share their insights on the industry. The guest lecturers offer the students a unique and important understanding of the workings of the industry. J.K. Lakshmipat University also collaborates with experts from the industry to contribute to the development of an industry-driven curriculum. These experts offer advice and guidance to set up the curriculum for various courses at the University so that they are made in line with the industry requirements and standards, and students stay prepared for the industry they are about to enter.

How to Choose the Right Specialization in MBA?

The recent economic growth in India has resulted in the emergence of several new Indian ventures as well as an increase in the number of foreign companies opening operations in India. This has resulted in a significant rise in the requirement for trained and qualified workforce at managerial levels in the country. Without a doubt, education is the key to success in this competitive world we live in, and as such management education from a reputed institute can help open new and wider job opportunities for candidates.Owing at the rising requirement of management professionals in the job market, a degree in Masters in Business Administration (MBA) has gained a lot of importance lately, and has now, in fact, become more of a necessity if you wish to secure a good managerial job at a good company.

An MBA education exposes students to various skills and concepts crucial to businesses and prepares them to contribute productively to the organization they get to work for.In general, an MBA degree provides a basic overview of the business world and serves to impart leadership and team building skills. But as today’s businesses are all about specializations, the specialization that you choose in your MBA education matter a lot. The specialized MBA education can help to equipyoubetter for the specific field you want to pursue your career in. Along with the basic knowledge regarding various aspects of business operations, the specialization in an MBA degree specifically trains candidates to handle issues specific to their career choices.

A swift increase in career specialization has resulted in the emergence of MBA courses with specialization in fields ranging from agriculture to hotels. One can find an MBA specialization to fit any career choice. The most popular MBA specializations are marketing, human resource management, finance, information technology, operation management, retail management, Digital marketing and web analytics, logistics and supply chain management, financial analytics and international business.

It won’t be wrong to say that the specialization you choose in your MBA will govern the direction your career takes. Thus, it is imperative to put some serious thought into this choice and make a well-informed decision beforehand. Following are a few important considerations to keep in mind while choosing your specialization inyour MBA degree:

  • Know Yourself: The specialization you choose while pursuing your MBA will stick with you for the rest of your life and will largely define the career path you will walk on to. Hence, carefully self-analyze your strengths and weaknesses before you take any decision. You know yourself better than anyone else does. Think about what you want to do in your life, what interests you, and what are your passions. Maybe you have always been good at math and great with number crunching but you don’t want to make a career out of it. Passion and career choice can be very different. Maybe you have always been interested in computers and want to have a career in Information technology. Different careers are suited for different personalities. Someone who is an introvert may find it difficult to work in Human Resource. Someone who is more outgoing and gets bored easily may not be a great fit in Finance. Before you make a choice know yourself and what you are good at, what are your likes, and what you are comfortable with. Base your decision on your personality, skills, and career goals and most importantly,on your interests.
  • Long Term Goals: Consider your long term goals. Trends keep changing, so instead of following the current trends, ask yourself where you want to see yourself in 15 years and then choose the specialization that would give your career a boost in order to take you to your career goal. While choosing a specialization in MBA, consider the prospects of long term employability in that field. Instead of choosing a specialization that will be irrelevant in a few years, choose something that fits your long term goals.
  • Understand the Market: One of the most important reasons behind pursuing an MBA degree is to improve your job prospects. While choosing your specialization you need to understand the market first. New and innovative technologies render old ones obsolete. Similarly, MBA specializations that do not match today’s business requirements should be avoided. Make sure the specialization you choose is not outdated and the curriculum is up-to-date.
  • Salary Packages: Though you cannot and must not base your decision for choice of specialization wholly on this criterion, but to make a well informed decision, it is important that youare aware of the salary packages offered for various MBA specializations in general. Find a balance between your interests and a specification that comes with a good pay package. If you base your decision solely on the salary structure and are unable to grasp and perform well in that field, it will be all for nothing. Whereas if you are good at what you do, even if salary packages are not the best in the beginning, you can utilize your skills to the fullest and reach the top.
