Abstract

With the mushrooming of business schools across India producing graduates that are being labeled as unemployable by industry, a serious problem is facing the business schools in India. Is it the right time to rethink how business education is being imparted? Are we actually preparing the students for the future? Do we need to relook at the way we are interacting with the industry? Is there a need for closer tie-ups? The author feels that we need to consider answering these questions if business education is to be improved. Many interesting trends such as MOOCs (massive online open classes), technology-mediated learning, experiential education (internships and field-based projects), incubator and laboratory learning (including virtual reality), and gamification need to be explored. With reference to challenges in regard to admission, only a strong differentiation in terms of content, industry tie-ups, center of excellence in collaboration with industry for knowledge creation would help.
