The Diminishing Dreams of Indian MBA Colleges

In India, a management degree is considered the key to the best of opportunities and “the good life”. But, the facts tend to suggest otherwise. Every year more and more students fill the forms for the tests of premier MBA colleges, but the number of seats for management courses far outnumbers the students. This is a far cry from the erstwhile known crisis of students versus institutions, and needs to be attended to by the authorities before they become unable to solve it.

It is estimated that close to 2 lakh (200,000) students register for MBA entrance tests, with almost 1.5 lakhs attending the innumerable examinations. Now, there are more than 5 lakh seats for MBA students in India, which is more than three times the number of participating students. This has lead to a major disruption in the demand and supply chain, which threatens to affect the lives of all people associated with this field. Moreover, out of the total number of seats, only a fraction of it can offer a talented student the kind of education & skills demanded by today’s business world.

It is a well known fact that the infrastructures of institutions, apart from those belonging to the Indian Ivy League, are substandard. The consensus of the experts of the education sector has been that even the most unfit management institute is supported by the governments as it promises to impart education. But, as the deficit of students is facing MBA colleges, they seem to resort to the last possible option – shutting down! Instead, a mandate in needed, which would require the available infrastructure to be upgraded and used to support the education of students looking for other growing fields and sectors.
