What distinguishes the best B schools from the rest?There are an estimated 8000 B schools in India. Out of these 8000, a huge number are those that are affiliated to some University or the other, including deemed Universities, and the standard of teaching in these colleges, for the MBA degree is so poor that there is a huge gap between what the industry wants, and what is taught in the classroom.
Why are the Indian Institutes of Management, and another twenty top B schools, so good in quality, whereas the rest are simply rotting? How do we make sure that the rest also do some serious thinking and come out of the problem?
For instance, does the quality of students impact education in such places? If a good number are thoroughly demotivated for whatever reason, does this also impact the quality of education?
The absence of quality case-studies is another big issue. How do we go about doing something to make things better for the vast majority of colleges, offering the MBA program?
