As Delhi-NCR’s management schools prepare for the 2012-14 academic session, heads of the 12 best share their future plans

IIPM: What is E-PAT?

THE WORLDWIDE fears of a double-dip recession have yet again put the spotlight back on B-Schools. Are they preparing their students for the uncertain new world? Will these students be industry ready? Will they be prepared to face the challenges of the new economic order?

We posed these questions to the key functionaries of the BSchools that bagged the first 12 positions of the third Mail Today B-School Rankings. And we came back reasonably assured that the institutes were working harder than before to raise the quality benchmark.

If our joint topper, IIPM Saket, has teamed up with Yale for a ground-breaking stock market analysis, the institute that shares the honour, MDI Gurgaon, is talking about new campuses, faculty expansion and more foreign tie-ups.

The big trend, in fact, is to go global. “IMT’s recent collaboration with the Kellogg School of Management is part of its initiative to expose our students to the case studies their peers at top management schools around the world get to study,” explains its director, Bibek Banerjee.

And at Galgotias Business School, Greater Noida, students will get an opportunity to complete their last year of study in associated foreign universities. IIPM’s Dean of Academics, Prasoon Majumdar, puts all these developments in perspective. “As the country grows, the demand for management graduates will keep growing and so will the number of B-Schools,” he says.

Recognising the demands of the new market, IIT Delhi’s Department of Management (DMS) has opted to overhaul its curriculum to make it more industry friendly. Says Sudhir K. Jain, Head of DMS.“Our academic curriculum review is based entirely on industry feedback.”

FORE School of Management will inaugurate a fully residential campus in Sonepat next year. Jagan Institute of Management Studies will open a multi-specialty university in Bahadurgarh, Haryana. The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade is planning a second campus in Kolkata and a new one in Kochi.

The International Management Institute, Qutab Institutional Area, has a Rs 30-crore war chest for infrastructure expansion. And the women students of the Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management will have their own hostel next year.

FORE School of Management Director Jitendra K.Das says IT applications will change the way management is taught in BSchools. “Today, more time is spent on computer-based simulations in classrooms than anything else,” Das says. “We have to get attuned to seeing things on the email and handheld devices instead of the notice board.”

The Indian Institute of Finance, Noida, which is celebrating its silver jubilee next year, “has identified as many as 12 new areas in the field of finance alone and will be rolling out programmes in them by the beginning of April 2012,” says its chairman, J.D. Aggarwal. An exciting new world awaits students who have set their sights on these B-Schools that are changing the rules of the game.
