WHY MANAGEMENT INSTITUTES, FAIL TO CREATE THOUGHT LEADERS ?

The most of the management institutes of India , have failed to create thought leaders and only produced line managers well fit for the low profile Corporate “babus” or routine jobs. Isn’t it the right time we rethink the state of Management education in India.Sri Joydip analyses the state of management education in India and how it can be improved.

Yes , it is the single reason, that the focus is on result, and not on the process. Very interesting to note, that this has been also the Hallmark of Bhagvad Gita's philosophy as delivered by Sri Krishna to Arjuna, in the sections related to Karma Yoga .

Sometimes , academia has a role , not only to provide manpower which deliver “0 hour performance” to Industry , but also to set new standards of expectation for manpower to Industry. The manpower, who could come up with a new line of consciousness, where process is given equal emphasis along with results , where people who come out from management institution have an inbuilt societal and environmental consciousness , which can stand up in testing time of value erosion.

But then who will build those people , where is the time for it, in the age of rat race ? .

Obviously , we all know , the consequences for it and there are ample examples from Bhopal Gas Tragedy to Satyam Saga and Oil spill , if we don't do it . But then we have these incredible attitude of "Chalta hai" , everything is good and fine as long as the student is placed.

The problem is also the involvement of the student after he joins the industry, becomes weak with academia, and there is no life-long learning process. The time period of the academia gets to mould a student in right direction is so short , that there is hardly a ethic or character building exercise, could be taken on, apart from the skills building exercise.

If we have to practically implement some of the reflection of Bhagvad Gita on the education system , there is a need to incorporate a life long learning process, that a individual can balance with process and results, and became a part of expanded management consciousness’ which is transformational incorporating societal , environmental and economic values on the same breadth .

Whereas the tamasic people are found to be always moving downwards, due to there heedlessness and ignorance which creates a negative belief system , flooded with negative thoughts .
