On the horizon of contemporary management education, one can visualize the emergence of great opportunities and formidable challenges. The fact that the national economy is triggered into the trajectory of growth, never witnessed before, the emerging economic regime has galvanized the need for management graduates to man the corporate as well as SMEs. This leaves a large gap in the supply of professional managers providing a great opportunity for the aspiring youth who want to pursue management education.
At the same time, the deficiency syndrome in respect of quality, employability and the skill set of management graduates pose a formidable challenge. As such the competency and employability of management graduates will have to be enhanced and fine-tuned. The B-schools by and large have to prepare themselves to fill this quality gap and meet the industry expectation.
Yet another deficiency is the need to change the ethical makeup of the mindset of management students so that they can appreciate the ethical values and integrate such aspects with the decision-making process.
