Top B-schools to challenge new AICTE rule

New Delhi: Several top private business schools in India have
decided to petition high courts and the government against a
contentious new rule by the All India Council for Technical Education
(AICTE), the nation's apex regulating body for technical education...
The institutes that will fie the petition include Xavier Labor Research
Institute (XLRI) in Jamshedpur, Birla Institute of Management
Technology(BIMTECH), the Management Development Institute and
S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) in
Mumbai among others. These institutes had met on Monday to
finalize the strategy for opposition of the new rule.

The private b-schools are opposed against a notification by the

AICTE that had been received on December 28, 2010 that prevented
private b-schools from conducting their own admission tests for the
postgraduate diplomas in management.

The private b-schools have alleged that the implementation of the

new rule could dwindle the quality of management education in India.

According to the notification by the AICTE, individual institutions have

also been barred from conducting their own group discussions (GD)
and personal interviews (PI). Instead, the states have been directed
to conduct the GDs and PIs, which are part of the second phase of
the procedure for admission into b-schools.

The AICTE had come up with the new rule in order to make the
admission procedure into b-schools easier for MBA aspirants by
reducing the number of admission tests they have to take and also
minimize the amount of traveling that students are required to do for
the GDs and PIs of individual b-schools. The AICTE had said that the
new rule would also help in elimination of any malpractices that b-
schools may have utilized for admissions.

However, the rule has not been welcomed by b-schools and they
have argued that the rule kills their autonomy in admissions and
would in turn lead to a decline in the quality of education at top
private b-schools.

BIMTEECH Director H. Chaturvedi has said that the new rule would
kill the growth ofmanagement education in India and take the nation
back 20 years when we were yet to go global with education.

The institutes that have decided to petition against the rule have also
garnered the support of Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad
(IIM-A) Director Bakul Dholakia. Dholakia had earlier challenged
attempts by former human resource development minister Arjun
Singh at impinging into the autonomy of the IIM.

Is Management Science, Art Or Both?

In general sense, management is the art of handling the different
aspects of the organization. And it is also a type of science like the
mathematics is a formal science then management is also came in
the category of the formal science. But if take a look keenly then,
management is totally an art. This is an art that how we communicate
with the general people, which came in the management. It is the
ability and art of a manager that handles the organization in well
manner and keeps growing the organization level because of using
his abilities.

Let us suppose that a person came to a manager in very angry mode,

and after taking to the manager, he is convinced according to the
manager point of view, then it was the art of a manager that he has
handled the customer in a friendly way.
Management is not totally depend upon the manager's ability, it also
the team work of the other organization members, who contribute
there effort for the organization. Again it is an art that a group of
people work together for so long time and reach to some high level,
because of there managerial skills and abilities.
It is believed that management is both an art as well as science. The
reason is that different sources justify it with different reasons.
According to Webster's College Dictionary, management is an art
because it provides the skills for conducting human activities and it is
a science because the skills and techniques which are used in
management are precise applications. Scientific principles which are
used in management, give the managers specific body of information
to guide their behavior. It is also considered an art by the people who
think that it is a skill borne of personality and ability.
Management Education - Is it necessary to succeed in
business - November 28th, 2009
The strange thing about my utter lack of education in
management was that it didn't seem to matter. As a
principal and founding partner of a consulting firm that
eventually grew to 600 employees, I interviewed, hired, and
worked alongside hundreds of business-school graduates,
and the impression I formed of the M.B.A. experience was
that it involved taking two years out of your life and going
deeply into debt, all for the sake of learning how to keep a
straight face while using phrases like "out-of-the-box
thinking," "win-win situation," and "core competencies."
When it came to picking teammates, I generally held out
higher hopes for those individuals who had used their
university years to learn about something other than
business administration.

After I left the consulting business, in a reversal of the usual

order of things, I decided to check out the management
literature. Partly, I wanted to "process" my own experience
and find out what I had missed in skipping business school.
Partly, I had a lot of time on my hands. As I plowed through
tomes on competitive strategy, business process re-
engineering, and the like, not once did I catch myself
thinking, Damn! If only I had known this sooner! Instead, I
found myself thinking things I never thought I'd think, like,
I'd rather be reading Heidegger! It was a disturbing
experience. It thickened the mystery around the question
that had nagged me from the start of my business career:
Why does management education exist?

Last Night I think too much on this topic and as of my point

of view I don't think it was necessary 10-15 years before but
now a days competition is very high in every business and
one can't fight alone with this competition until he/she is
aware about some insights of business.

Many new companies emerge in today's market scenarion

but got bursted because they don't have knowledge of new
factors coming to the business place and same with Core

Are Ethics just Business Pretence?

Tamoghna said: (Thu, Oct 7, 2010 12:33:55 PM)

Ethics are actually not meant to be but they are very subtly
and efficiently put to business pretence in all social spheres
to make better use of the meek. Be it political, be it social
or be it corporal, ethics are quite wrongly made use of to
deviate people from freedom of thought evaluation and
exercising them on free will.
Maya said: (Tue, Oct 19, 2010 02:52:44 PM)

Frankly speaking ethics varies from person, institutes,

companies etc. Thus no one can have same view on ethics. I
personally believe its in the eyes of oneself as how they
perceive it. It is not actually a business pretending its their
duty toward the society where they are benefiting. Many
companies have set examples by providing their best to the
society. They should have good people practices and
transparency in their dealings. No company is isolated from
the outside world they are using the resources and thoughts
they are specially bounded to give the returns.

Amey said: (Wed, Jan 26, 2011 12:05:20 AM)

Ethics basically are the unwritten rules of conduct in any

walk of really depends upon what philosophy your
organisation believes in. for ex. tata group is always been
associated with doing the things ethically, whereas what
Satyam did was completely unethical. and I truly believe the
true way to succed in business is to do the things ethically.

I agree that the leader we had in the past or present are not
from any business schools but we must understand that the
leadership quality they are having is the result of the
situtation or circumstances faced by them. And the same
thing is done by the business schools, they are giving the
their students virtual situations to act so that the Leadership
qulitiy or power a student (or anyone) is already having
which is hidden inside can come out.

Everyone can't be a leader because everyone is not facing

the same situations. The circumstances of everyone is
different. For example carbon is same but from the same
carbon we have two allortopes diamond and grahite. As
diamond get strong pressure and heat it is diamond and if
graphite also suffered that heat and pressure it could also
be diamond.

A person come with all the positives and negatives with him,
it is the circumstances which make the persons mind to
respond. If he responded positively he can be diamond and
if negativly a graphite.



There must be followers else who will value leaders.

leaders then we can't get the conclusion.

by allowing him/her to experience and take decisions. Apart
from TATA, Birla and Ambani there are lot of companies that
are being directed well by leaders. And those leaders are not
born. There are thousands of companies that performed
very well even in recession.
In my opinion, in current scenario, a leader is a person who
give direction to all resources in a company in order to keep
that company sustainable and to grow more and more.

So, Chanda kochhar from ICICI, Indira Nooi etc etc all are
good professionals and leaders of today's business scenario.

Engineering Students are wasting their Time in

Hello! I want to initiate the topic "Engineering Students are

wasting their Time in Management Studies".

In my opinion, now a days technology is growing very fast not

only in development but also in services. Banks, Railways,
Telecoms, etc. All the industries from small scale to large
scale based on the technology. Therefore to manage such
type of industries or organization, technical as well as
managerial skills should be necessary, One should not be able
to manage the organization until unless he or she doesn't
have the technical skills in this HI-TECH world.

In India, Engineering Studies gives the strength to an

individual to crack the top level MBA entrance Exams.
According to one Statics more then 80% Engineering students
get admission in IIM's, thus this statics shows that
Engineering students are the only right persons who are

Technology is advancing rapidly and engineers/technologists

are the pioneer of this rapid technological advancement,
besides this it is true that to work in a organization some
basic/fundamental managerial skills are required. Now the
topic is "engineers are wasting time doing MBA"it sounds
that engineers are doing MBA that does'n work for their
career, but it is not true because if we look at the statistics
then we can see that most of the students who are getting
admitted in IIM's or B-Schools are from engineering
background, and they are able to complete MBA, and are
highly successful-so it depicts that "they are not wasting
time doing MBA". The main stream discipline is engineers is
engineering/technology. So I think they should concentrate
on technology, and it's good to have few subjects on
fundamentals/basics on management in syllabus of
engineering. So that they can put their technical skill in a

Statistics also prove this fact as most of the students who

For any foundation your base should be strong, and

engineering provides us with this as in engineering we learn
technology and in MBA we learn how to implement these

Well if you're talking about technical recruitment a person

needs to have communication skills just to express his/her
thoughts not more than that. and this thing can be judged
easily by a personal interview.

what we can get to know about a person by GD?

-how good listener he/she is
-how fluent he/she is
-how confident he/she is
-how he/she represents thoughts

Now in technical knowledge a person needs to have

complete knowledge about a concept or aspect in that case
any body has enough confidence to represent that.

Only a little fluency needed in english. (Most of the part is

filled with technical terms)

Nobody needs to make a comment with half knowledge so

no contradiction needed.

so why to go for GD in technical process?

A company can turn very successful only if it can bring in a

technological break through or a innovation in technology. A
technological change is the one that will project the
company with distinct stature in the global arena. For such a
thing to happen it needs technically sound employees aware
of the modern trends and innovative in their thoughts. So
the major concern in this case is on the technical aspect of
the employee and this Group discussion is in no way going
to test his technical proficiency.

Moreover group discussions are normally held to check the

sociability and.

Expressibility of the candidate. Being human, Socializing is

the inbuilt ability or virtue of every human, there is nothing
to check in it. So the very need/necessity of the GD is
questioned here. !.

Consider any type of firm, technical or media related, they

all want something common in all of their employees. And
that is the "field knowledge", be it programming prowess for
a software developer job or sorting skills for a Croupier in a
casino. But along with that they also need employees who
can create a work culture, or at least sustain the present
one and not harm it. Nobody wants an employee who is
very good at technicalities but doesn't know how to behave
in a group. With teamwork as the main success mantra all
the companies need "team man" rather than geeks for their
jobs because whatever is to be done is not to be done
individually but through collaboration with fellow employees.
In that case each team is bound to have divides, discussions
and issues they need to resolve together. And during that
case if there is a man who doesn't know group behavior
then its obvious that he will disrupt the team's harmony and
soon find him in a place where no one wants to be in the

aspects and can speak without spoiling the team's harmony

The role of business ethics: incorporating values and ethics into business

This paper examines the growing emphasis that colleges and

business firms are placing on business ethics, as well as how
business ethics inform the lives of those in business. Current
views and legislation have only enhanced the significance of
ethics codes, making them a crucial part of the corporate
landscape. The increasing relevance of the costs of
disregarding ethics in business is noted. Emphasis is placed
on the importance of stressing business ethics in society,
and on effective methods of teaching the concepts to
students so that they will carry a strong ethical sense into
the business world.


Incorporating values and ethics into business decisions have

become increasingly important to business people,
universities, government, and the public in general. The
costs of unethical behavior in business are high and rising,
possibly due to new government regulation. Because of the
scandalous last decade, the federal government is listening
to the public outrage and taking a stronger stance on
unethical business practices. Because of recent laws, it is
vital for businesses to focus on securing and monitoring
sound ethical policies. In addition, pressure is being placed
on business schools to ensure that students graduate with a
knowledge of ethical principles and the critical thinking skills
necessary to analyze and make sound ethical decisions. This
paper will examine the role American universities have taken
regarding teaching ethics to business students and the
implications this holds for students and society at large. A
brief discussion of different views regarding business ethics
will be presented including the stakeholder theory,
stockholder theory, instrumentalism, and the "invisible
handshake." This study will focus on some possible reasons
why students lack an understanding of business ethics and
on how business schools can meet the challenge of
educating students on the importance of business ethics.


Business ethics can be thought of in many different lights,

and part of the reason that business ethics has become such
a contemporary issue is because it cannot be defined
precisely. Although most people have different standards of
what is morally justifiable, society generally feels that there
are certain values that should be set as the minimum ethical
behavior. Most people believe that in order to meet the
minimum ethical standards, a business must be honest,
obey the law, and not directly infringe on the rights that our
society holds as inalienable human rights. This, however,
does not exhaust the definition of business ethics that many
believe in. Some other ethical issues involve compensation
of employees, job security for employees, hiring practices,
waste management issues, pollution, and conflicts of
interest. Sometimes companies face situations where ethical
choices are in opposition to their interests. An example of
this could be a logging company doing business in forests
around the world. One ethical consideration must be
protecting the rain forest from destruction.
Environmentalists may propose that the company stop
logging completely; however, this may bring up another
ethical issue such as the preservation of jobs for loggers.
Except where otherwise stated, this paper is primarily
concerned with ethical issues that fit in the first category of
minimum ethical standards including honesty, compliance to
the law, and fairness. This is not to undermine the
importance of evaluating the ethical implications of every
decision, but it is intended to simplify.

endorse products not as good as they should be, so it

They can paying your income tax at the right time, creating
your software or website for non profit organisations and
donations to the various charity sites like rotary.

As a corporate employ if you have good money you have to

contribute more to the society since all money comes from
the society.

some of our neighbours will also show the interest on doing

If we are doing like this then our next generation also know

we are escaping by saying no im not having time or I'm too

with point that there are some inborn capacities in the

comes to this earth learning everything. Anything anyone

that's not true, all he learns from his surrounding, his

We need more Entrepreneurs than Managers"

N.Khurana: I agree with the topic that we need more

Entrepreneurs than managers because focus from most if
the developed countries we soon transfer to countries like
India and china and moreover it is said India will be third
largest economy in the world by 2050 ,
This kind of growth can only be seen by India if we have
more no of Entrepreneurs.
But there are other factors to be taken into consideration
which make it compulsory and feasible to became an
Entrepreneurs like according to reports, Indian salaries will
rise much faster than the cost of living which would be
unattractive and people might start ,get into there own
venture ,this backed by government in the form of SEZ , tax
relief to increase investment and create more jobs for people
and increase the base

T.Chaturvedi: Entrepreneurs and managers are two sides of

a coin in the economy. The former establish businesses of
their own and then manage them while the latter are only
involved in managing. I think that entrepreneurs are very
much required in our economy today because Indians still
are extremely risk averse and this causes them to
undermine their potential for performance sometimes. On
the other hand the need for managers cannot be stressed
more because they are pivotal to the running of our booming
economy. An entrepreneur may not necessarily be self
sufficient and may need managers because he may not be
able to simultaneously look after all his concerns in his

Ritesh: Let us first start by defining who an entrepreneur is.

An entrepreneur is a person who takes risks, puts in effort &
perseveres to achieve the end result. At the end he may be
rewarded for his effort. He sets examples and shows other
people that a certain thing can be achieved by being an
example himself. A manager by virtue of his profession is
normally assigned a particular task & assigned some
resources. He has to complete the assignment with the
constraints imposed on him.
Khushi13: Entrepreneurs creates lot of employment in the
society. He is the one who undertakes the organization and
management of an enterprise involving independence and
risk as well as the opportunity for profit. In business there
are four main core competence roles that we see. These are
the Entrepreneur, Businessman, Investor and Manager.
Management" characterizes the process of leading and
directing all or part of an organization, often a business,
through the deployment and manipulation of resources.
An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and manages
any enterprise, esp. a business, usually with considerable
initiative and risk. So I think we need more entrepreneurs
because if we don’t have entrepreneurs then we
automatically don’t have manager.

Antony Thomas: The topic is an interesting one and I do

agree with it. Entrepreneurs are the heroes in the whole
drama of economic development. Economic development
needs investment and capital accumulation and these can
be done by efficiently by entrepreneurs. Indian economy
needs to develop rapidly and there is no better way than
starting up new enterprises, businesses and industries.

Ritesh: Any person who takes initiatives & generates

innovative ideas can be termed as an entrepreneur. These
are the people who add value to the organization by making
significant contributions.

Aditya Ahuja: An entrepreneur is a person with ideas and

most of all implementation of these ideas

T.Chaturvedi: An entrepreneur is a face of capitalism as he

sets up his venture for profit. Profit can come only when he
manages his venture properly. I think these roles cannot be
dichotomized. This is because merely setting up a concern
will not set the cash registers ringing. At each stage, be it
financing the project or trying to set an identity or even
managing the logistics, all are a part of managing. To make
it, a second choice in preference sue to admiration of a
entrepreneurship is not always wise.

Rohit Gupta: Yes true said Tuhin, Managers and

Entrepreneur are two side of same coin. But one may be or
may be not related to each other

Ritesh: khushi13, I think you are mistaken by what an

entrepreneur means. It doesn’t only mean a person who
starts his own company, it refers to people who take
initiatives & take them to fulfillment
Ankit Gandhi: If you are taking country like India, yes we
need more entrepreneur to employ other people who are
anyways unemployed

T.Chaturvedi: On the contrary,Mr.Rohit, I think they have to

be related. An entrepreneur must be able to manage or else
he will be doomed.

Yogesh Srihari: I don’t think entrepreneurs have an edge

over the managers but managers are the one who manages
the productions of a particular but entrepreneurs create a
brand out of managed product. As somebody said they take
the risk of satisfying the consumer. Effective marketing &
sustainability not only requires good product but it also
needs good communication which should reach the

Ritesh: An entrepreneur should be a good manager to

manage his team & his resources. Managerial skills are
essential for an entrepreneur to succeed.

Rohit Gupta: A manager can be built with the degree only

when an Entrepreneur can be making by experience and he
can make as many managers under it which may again can
become an entrepreneur.

T.Chaturvedi: A person may start as an entrepreneur but

may develop into a manager. This is because once his
venture is setup, he need not have to struggle as he did but
just manage his business excellently.

Rajesh Patra: Well. Today in India the unemployment is

around 25%. Our new generation people after education
don’t feel comfortable to get back to farming. So they look
for job. And if they don’t get job, they ultimately get into
anti-social activities. As known "An empty mind is the house
of Devil". So we need to address this problem of
Khushi13: That’s what I am saying he is the one who takes
the initiative to start the business and creating employment.

Aditya Ahuja: It differs from person to person, some

entrepreneurs can be able managers. In India we can find
entrepreneurship at every corner even a roadside peddler is
an entrepreneur.

Jainisree: In a country like India, entrepreneurs are more

needed than managers. But an entrepreneur definitely
should be a good manager himself, to be successful

T.Chaturvedi: I think management is a concept which may

well outlast entrepreneurship principles in the long term.
Let's look at venture capital .An entrepreneur has to be
cogent to a VC and make him invest in his business. That’s
because it is still in a fledgling condition and has no
credibility. This can be done by anyone as long as his focus
is clear. But investment in established business usually
involves private equity which is a strategic move and
requires sound managerial concepts. Moreover as a business
grows up, it needs more of management skills. But the
entrepreneurial drive also sets in especially when a new
product may be formed due to innovation.

Ritesh: Entrepreneurs can also be said as true leaders. They

set examples to the rest and lead by example. We have
large number of examples in Dhirubhai Ambani,
Narayanamurthy, Kiran mazumdar etc.

N.Khurana: By saying it two side of the same coin is not

right, by this I get a feeling that these qualities is hold by the
same person and he can switch roles but as per my
interpretation a Entrepreneur is a person who is willing to
take risk and not only manage the resources he have , more
over being an entrepreneur is far more risky then being a
manger , moreover at the same time even if you are good
manager it is hard to deal with the ever changing

Rohit Gupta: Sorry to say you Rajesh: Unemployment in India

is around 4.5% according to Economic Survey of Dec 2006.
So please correct your information because as we know that
employment is not the main concern of our topic. So let back
to topic.

Antony Thomas: But we should keep in mind the fact that

not all people are talented enough to be entrepreneurs. It
takes certain innate skills to make a good entrepreneur. This
is evident from the fact that not many people who start their
own businesses end up making it successful.

N.Khurana: Just to add that one of the biggest cause of India

being a developing country despite having some of the best
talent and is far less when compared to country like china ,
is not the presence of write people in the political structure ,
if we have more Entrepreneurs they being built there wealth
might compete for the best post and get into the
government , which might effect the policies and lead to
growth and have respect politically

Ritesh: Group, let us discuss what is the difference between

a manager & an entrepreneur. The main difference between
a manager & an entrepreneur is the risk taking ability. An
entrepreneur takes risks to achieve objectives. This also
means that the rewards for success can be very high. An
entrepreneur can also be a manager but all managers are
not entrepreneurs.

Ankit Gandhi: Manager is the person who has certain

specialisation but entrepreneur job is to handle the whole job
with specialisation in every field.

Aditya Ahuja: An entrepreneur is the one with the idea and

the manager is the person who paves the way for this idea.
T.Chaturvedi: I think an entrepreneur has to manage as well
as take risks which may have more bearing on his venture
than a manager who may only affect a local area of an

Rohit Gupta: An entrepreneur makes as many Managers

he/she wants. A Manager can work under an Entrepreneur
with limited freedom to his/her job and he has not get full
right to do decision regarding the organization

Ankit Gandhi: If you see Dhirubhai Ambani he was the

entrepreneur who turned in to management with due
experience he got from entrepreneurship

N.Khurana: Just to begin with the distinction would be

Entrepreneur can be manager ,but not every manager can
be a Entrepreneur

Yogesh Srihari: Exactly as Ahuja said entrepreneur create

enterprises which should be managed by managers. Nothing
is a substitute for experience but our managers are trained
by these people having entrepreneur experience.

T.Chaturvedi: Just to add to Mr. Ritesh, the risks taken by a

manager may only affect his job if adversity strikes, whereas
an entrepreneur may end up losing his venture totally.

Antony Thomas: Excuse me, but exactly how is

distinguishing between a manager and an entrepreneur
really helping our topic? Let’s talk about why we need more
or less of why we need them and not their differences.

Aditya Ahuja: Infact every new proposal or venture needs

managerial assistance which can be provided by the
Ritesh: Companies need innovative ideas and solutions to
beat the competition. Hence there is a necessity in people
who think big & have a vision into the future. Mere
management skills won’t help as management normally
concentrates in managing the problem at hand rather than
generating innovative ideas.

Rohit Gupta: Can anyone give the answer why now days
people are more interested in Entrepreneurs and not
Managers? As we have seen recently that IIMA product
refuse to join to the company and want to make their own

T.Chaturvedi: I think entrepreneurs and managers could well

be interdependent in some cases. Entrepreneurial agents
may be the brain behind a move while the managers and
give shape to the strategy to it.

N.Khurana: Just to bring the focus back to the topic we are

not here to discuss which one is better but which one will
actually help in the development of the country like India,
which I feel an Entrepreneur would do a nice job because of
the ever changing environment and that is some thing India
would need to compete with rest of the world.

Khushi13: Ritesh, can you please clarify that do you agree

with the topic or disagree.

Aditya Ahuja: But Mr Rohit only those with a vision become

an entrepreneur not everybody becomes an entrepreneur.

T.Chaturvedi: I agree with Mr.Ahuja that IIM A grad may have

had a brilliant vision and also a plan to go about it.

Yogesh Srihari: Bill gates was a drop from school, Experience

of Entrepreneur can make a great manager.

Rohit Gupta: Yes, you are right Ahuja but an Entrepreneur

should be there to make any managers.
Jainisree: A good entrepreneur is the one who selects right
business opportunity and source business opportunities and
job opportunities to others. So entrepreneurship demands
more skills than the skills needed for a manager proper
planning about financial aspects, location, technical aspects
etc. Also about the market data and government policy, etc.

Ankit Gandhi: If you take Delhi in to account, for every

twelve household there is one entrepreneur ready to serve
the customer which clarifies the importance and the
popularity of entrepreneur.

Rohit Gupta: And this is why we need more entrepreneur

than mangers to create more and more jobs to boost our

Ritesh: Entrepreneurial spirit can be nurtured in the

employees & they can be given the freedom to try different
ideas . Someday such an idea can bring a lot of revenue to
the company. For example, Google India is dedicating 20%
of the employee's time for their pet projects where they can
innovate & become entrepreneurs. "Orkut" & "Google
finance" are some of the entrepreneurial ventures born out
of the Google labs.

N.Khurana: Moreover I also like to point that it is these

Entrepreneur who first built there wealth , contribute to the
society and then even can change the political structure of
the country which would effect the policies of a country to
compete in the future and moreover have respect for there

Khushi13: An Entrepreneurs involves a manger. He is the

one who creates a manager and if we have less no. of
Entrepreneurs and what will we do with managers so I agree
that we need more entrepreneurs then managers and this
will automatically create a manager.
Aditya Ahuja: An entrepreneur is always ready to take risks
and this gives him the edge over a manager.

Yogesh Srihari: But now a days manager are trained to

compete any kind of field either to create a company and
other is to work for a company as a manager.

Rohit Gupta: An entrepreneur can handle all the managers. A

manager is specialised in a particular field and this is the job
of an entrepreneur to assemble all the jobs to make the
objective of the organization to be fulfill.

Antony Thomas: An entrepreneur is one who starts a

business. This is a very good thing for the economy as it
provides employment, or education or health care facilities
and like India needs to increase its rate of economic growth
which is currently around 8%. For this we need more
industries, output, jobs, incomes better standards of living
etc all of which contribute to the development of the
economy as a whole. A manager is definitely indispensable.
A huge organization cannot be run by an individual alone. It
is here that managers come into play.

Ankit Gandhi: Management is a subset of entrepreneurship

get more exposure as an entrepreneur to face challenges
than management.

Ritesh: What is the percentage of MBA graduates from

premier B-schools who are trying to become entrepreneurs
after graduation in India ?

T.Chaturvedi: Let's look at it this way. An entrepreneur has a

general idea and a little domain specific area. He may not be
able to handle all specializations of his venture as he may
not be a specialist. For these internal specializations, he
needs managerial positions. And managers may not have a
general picture.
Rohit Gupta: A managers with the specialized in Marketing,
Finance, HR and many mores. But an entrepreneur makes all
the things on an equal platform to run an organization.

N.Khurana: I strongly disagree that the management of the

company can be trained to became an Entrepreneur but feel
that is something which within an individual and it just
require an Opportunity not just feedback.

Aditya Ahuja: Entrepreneurship is something that comes in

naturally and with experience. For example a person cannot
be trained to take risks. Thanks everyone, requests everyone

to give a concluding statement.

Rohit Gupta: We talked all the difference between an

Entrepreneur and Managers. We also found this that without
any one of the two it’s not possible to run any organization .
Whether it is entrepreneur or manager they must have
experience to handle the situation.

Ritesh: Managers manage a company , but entrepreneurs

add value by generating path breaking ideas & nurturing
them to become innovative products. An entrepreneur is
definitely a better value add to a company than a mere
manager. Having said, I also feel that a manager can also be
an entrepreneur & contribute to the growth of the company.

Aditya Ahuja: Entrepreneurship is the first step to build an

organization while managing it is the next.

Antony Thomas: Orion, the percentage is small because the

factors that guide us are not the development of our country
or patriotism but personal gain. Also, there is a huge factor
called risk involved in entrepreneurship. This is definitely a
drag on the would be entrepreneurial mind.
T.Chaturvedi: I think that both these positions are
interdependent. An entrepreneur cannot be multifaceted and
a master of all trades. He needs managers for those where
he cannot devote his time. A manager may not necessarily
be a visionary who gives ideas. But he may work brilliantly
when shown a path and deliver results. Together both can
work in a win win situation for the economy. This is what is a
optimum situation for the economy.

Jainisree: Entrepreneurs need innovative ideas, continuous

planning, one must ensure progress and get on with the
start up problems. It is risky but definitely fruitful when one
succeeds. In a country like India where population is vast
there is need for entrepreneurs as they create opportunities
for the unemployed and government is also encouraging
thru many development camps etc.

Yogesh Srihari: Entrepreneurs can be successful to certain

extent. we require highly trained managers compete in
this highly competitive worlds..

N.Khurana: my conclusion would be that yes more

Entrepreneur should be encouraged to take this job, in this
regard some kind of opportunity should be provided and let
them go after it, it is the risk taking feature which makes the
distinction from a manager, and I believe this people are the
only one which can achieve double digit GDP for India and
maintain 6 percent growth rate.

MBA in India is highly overrated.

substantial role to play in today's job industry as every industry seek
expertise in sales and marketing from their individuals. No matter
what is the nature of the industry, there have always been desperate
needs to sell their products. Every company believes that good
administrator will reap good results through his positive and realistic
thinking. MBA is one of the highly reputed degrees for business all
over the world. MBA has got everything one needs and would require
to deal with the business issues. That is the reason that it is one of
the most reputed and highly pursued courses in India as well as all
over the world.

If MBA in India is overrated, there is a solid reason behind it. Our

Business schools are among the best in the world. The IIMs are the
most sought after B schools in the world level. Also as these days IIM
students are highest paid amongst others, it has to be overrated.

Yes it’s true that MBA in India is highly overrated this may be due to
the high salary packages given to the individuals after completing
MBA. These days everyone wants to do MBA and the main reason
for this is that the scope of growth in this field is much more when
compared to any other field. Also its open for any graduate from any
field for e.g. the scope for a simple arts graduate is nowhere but
when the same graduate completes his MBA from any top b school of
India his importance is much more increased. Not only graduates but
also software engineers are moving towards MBA because of
promising growth as well as high salary packages.

In INDIA, the concept of M.B.A is mushrooming with great altitude

and there are many institutes and universities coming up with their
agenda. If it is accomplished with merit then it’s a boon or it’s just a

many sectors which were not effected fully by the recession.

I think there are various extraneous factors which contribute to

the decision of sustainability of the MBA income in the long run.
The argument can not be generalized. If the macro factors are
favourable then the salary will hike and if there are turbulent
times then it may as well succumb.

Well I do agree that rise in MBA salaries is not sustainable.
This is because the business and economic cycle doesn't
permit to be so. This can be well explained by taking an
example. When the economy is booming and Business cycle
is in its peak, the salary Will go up but when there s a
downturn, the salaries are slashed. Hence as mentioned by
Sarthak the macro factors does allow the salaries to be
sustainable in the long run.

According to me salary of any personnel is just a compensation for the work done by the
personnel. Also the salary of the MBA personnel is fully dependent upon the market and
no buddy know about market.

Hi friends,.

According to me, the salary of higher level managers could

be given in form of shares of company so that if value of
shares rises, their salary rises and if it depreciates then the
salary depreciates. This would end up the issue of salary
rise of managers and also if higher level managers work
hard for company to bring it up, they are suitably rewarded
by hike in shares and vice-versa.

If the share value goes to Zero then what will be the salary
of a Manager. All levels of manager put their best efforts for
the company. Hence their salary must be in the right
proportion of the profit gained by the company.

Salary of a manager should be fixed but in case of any trouble it

should be decreased or increased. Apart from that if a manager
is performing very well, he should be encouraged by giving
some perks.

Nobody can't predict about the sustainability of salary of a
manager. But its true that various factor like recession,
companies financial position has a great influence over
salary. Other than this we can't ignore the performance is
another key factor, which has direct influence on salary. So
if an manager is performing well then definitely he will get a
sustainably higher salary.

Its not just about MBA Salaries but everything in the todays
market is not sustainable in the long run. Moreover in the
past 4-5 years in India there has been a Massive growth
towards the Interest of Students towards Management
Studies and MNC's selecting the Cream is on of the main
reason's of MBA Salaries going all the way up but if this
continuous for the next 5 years there will definite stop in the
rise because guyz if we will have 1 lakh of doc's and
advocates and 10 lakh of MBA's there would be a big % of
people willing to work on Low Salaries as Managers.

Holding and MBA degree does not guarantee of a good salary

package. Now a days all industries are looking the person who
can actually earn business for them. They are not looking MBAs
only. If a person who does not have these degrees but has skills
can get more salary than an MBA. I have seen MBA degree
holder earn less than a regular graduate in industry.

All I know that- it completely depends on how well company
is doing the business because if company is making more
profits,there is the contribution of managers so they can be
paid more based on their contributions.therefore it's not

Yess I am fully agreed with my fellow speakers. Although

MBA is quite popular today yet It dosent give you the
gaurentee for high pakages. Its you who make the better
use of your degree with your personal abilities and skills.
Other than no salary is going for a long run in any field. If
you are doing good and your company is earning benefit
from you. You can enjoy pretty handsome salary. On the
other hand if your campany's finacial position is not well and
simuntaneously reccesion is hitting at that time. Then, you
should not expect good salary from your employers inspite
being an MBA or else.

It is all about the influense of internal and external factor, every

thing in this world has possitive and negative approach. It
depends upon the situation the person face in the corporate
world. The managers can get benefints in long run. No
individual in the organisation work for the loss of the company,
so ultimately they prove themselves good in the competitive
corporate world, passing out of MBA degree only will not fetch
the salary. Its time explore himself what he/she learn from that
period of time.

Rush for MBA is really for a big money?

The MBA is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is

a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your
career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. What
will you get out of an MBA? Aside from a powerful life
experience, the MBA degree should supply three main value
propositions: Skills, Networks, and Brand.


These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance,

marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as
well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and
communication that are so critical for effective management.
MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the
classroom. Since MBA programs attract people from very
diverse industries and cultures, a program should be able to
leverage these differences and translate them into learning

An MBA degree program offers access to a network of MBA
students, alumni, faculty, and business and community
leaders. This network can be very useful when beginning a
job search, developing a career path, building business
relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise
outside your current field. For example, entrepreneurs need
access to capital, business partners, vendors, and clients.
Arts-related businesses need access to funding and strategic
management in order to position themselves to be relevant
in the marketplace. Global businesses need access to local
business cultures as they expand their enterprises to new


The MBA degree is a recognized brand that signifies

management and leadership training. The particular school
and type of MBA program you attend also have brand
associations that can help open doors based on the school's
reputation. The strength of a school's brand is based on the
program's history, its ability to provide students with
technical skills and opportunities for personal growth, and
the reach of its alumni and industry network. A powerful
brand can give you the flexibility to make changes
throughout your career.
While the MBA could mean better positioning and
marketability in a competitive environment, and better
money, money itself should not be the primary goal. It is the
opportunity to work out of passion, out of a love for what
you do and the benefit it brings others as well as yourself.
