At first it was the Internet. Then came the sharing economy. Amidst all that, there came the waves of predictions of how automation will change the world as we know it.
And now, we are in the middle of a coronavirus global pandemic! With all these things happening in a series, disruption looks like the only constant in business today.
If you are planning to go to one of the best business schools in India, it is best to find one with curricula that match this reality.
It has never been more important for business education to remain relevant and to match employers’ demands.
Because, if they don’t, then they could risk falling behind with an outdated skill set and a lack of industry experience.
Here it would be quite relevant to quote Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, the Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), which is one of the UK’s most influential business organizations, and is a strong advocate of industry-relevant business education.
In the Rethinking Business Education (Fit for the Future) report by the Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS), Carolyn – an MBA graduate herself – highlights the absolute importance of preparing aspiring business graduates, like you, for the uncertain future of work.
According to her, “For business schools to properly prepare their students for the modern workplace, they need to train graduates not for roles that exist currently, but for those that will exist in five, ten or fifteen years.”
Carolyn also explains that much of this relies on greater collaboration, between businesses and universities, but also within business schools themselves.
She further adds, “This means business schools need to keep their curriculum under constant review to make sure it reflects the changing world around us and draws upon the interdisciplinary strengths of universities.”
So, if you are looking to pursue postgraduate business education in India, look for ones that fit this bill. And, if you have plans to become the next top entrepreneur in your country, then you will also need to see if the business school you have chosen has career services in place that fully support your long-term goals.
Here, it would perhaps be quite apt to suggest Asian Business School (ABS), Noida as a best B-school in the Delhi NCR region of India that truly drives entrepreneurial action in this current world of disruption.
