Text Snippet: Faculty and students from Top B-schools share how Jagranjosh.com is helping MBA aspirants make the right career choices in the field of management education.
Pursuing an MBA is generally considered to be the sure shot route to success. However, there are many myths prevalent about MBA education which must be removed. Only a few aspirants actually know what an MBA really is and whether they should pursue it? Therefore, as the education portal of a leading media house, Jagranjosh.com has started an initiative to further the cause of management education in India by disseminating authentic information among the youth of the country. Applauding the work being done by JagranJosh.com, faculty members and students from top B-schools shared their views about how they felt about this initiative and how it will prove helpful for MBA aspirants.
Prof. Runa Sarkar
Dean – Academic
“I really commend Jagranjosh on opening up the concept of management education for all. It’s wonderful that through this platform youare helping students and MBA aspirants know and understand what MBA actually is. MBA is not just about the hype around the six and seven figure salaries that students get. Jagranjosh helps students understand the different advantages and benefits of doing an MBA.I am so glad that Jagranjosh has taken up this initiative to try and demystify MBA education and help aspirants understand where an MBA can take them.”
Faculty – Human Resource Management,
Jagranjoshhas made a good effort to help aspirants make informed career choices. Often, aspirants and students, when they try and decide their career path, they end up being confused about the various career options that are available to them. Especially for MBA students, it is very important for them to understand the type of course and the institute they choose. Moreover, through this initiative, Jagranjosh also presents the different career options available to the students after completing their MBA education.
Prof. B.N. Srivastava
Students, at this age, require a lot of guidance. Otherwise they take rushed decisions based on very limited information and they jump to conclusions about their career choices. So, such platforms like Jagranjosh.com and the information they provide definitely help the students, not only in terms of making their career as a business student but also when they join the work force. Through such initiatives, they will be able to understand what are the expectations from them in their work life are and how their career will be moulded. Therefore, I would say the work you have started is very laudable.
Dr. Sunita Singh Sengupta
The initiative started by Jagranjosh.com to disseminate authentic information about management education is a social cause. It will help motivate the aspiring students of India, who want to do an MBA. It will also offer a perspective to them about what an MBA is all about. It will help MBA aspirants understand the entire MBA ecosystem and help them develop the right thought process to chalk out the plan for their career ahead. I congratulate Jagranjosh for coming up with such a wonderful initiative.
Prof. Abhishek Goel
Faculty – Organizational Behaviour Group
I really appreciate that Jagranjosh is taking this initiative of trying to put forth to people that management education is slightly more serious business. MBA aspirants need to understand that it is not just about big bucks, it is not about bringing you great things in life. It is actually a lot of hard work, where you are probably working more than what you could have afforded. In fact, Jagran talks about awakening and may this awakening be about Management education and Josh refers to energy. So hopefully, this initiative will instill awakened energy among the MBA aspirants.
Prof. Amit Bardhan
Faculty – Operations Management
The initiative started by Jagranjosh is very important. Because, when students try to take career decision, be it after school and even after completing their college; there is always some kind of herd mentality that is followed by them. Students often ignore their skills, abilities and interests and take very myopic view about their careers. But, with such initiatives, when right kind of information is provided about different career options, courses and institutes; it helps students take more informed career choice. Therefore, such kind of initiative is always welcome, especially when it comes to professional domains like management education.
President – Entrepreneurship Cell
Jagranjosh.com is a great platform for MBA aspirants to understand different aspects of management education. Because, as complicated as it is to get into any of the MBA colleges in India, it is even more important to understand the entire management eco-system how do you fit into it. So, this initiative provides students with a glimpse of what management education in India is and what does it entail and where can it take you.
President, Systems & Operations Society
For an MBA aspirant, it is very important to get an insider’s view on what goes on into a B-school or during an MBA programme. On this front, Jagranjosh has been trying to bridge the gap by bringing together MBA aspirants with the existing students and faculty members of the top B-schools. Aspirants are able to understand the motivations of the students who are in the B-schools and also know about the opportunities that lie before them and the challenges they will have to overcome as part of their MBA programme.
