Downfall In Employability of Management Graduates

Decline In MBA Graduates Employability
The enchantment of Indian B-Schools except for the top 25 is now fading and the employability of management graduates is on a decline. The recruitment avenues for management graduates are on a decline, considering the fact that the economy is growing at the lowest pace in nine years, besides the financial sector is also witnessing a very slow moving growth rate.

IIT Delhi, professor and head of department of Management studies, Rajat K Baisya said on the sidelines of an event organised by SkillTree said "The number of management schools and engineering colleges in India is somewhere around 10,000-12,000 and there are serious questions about the employability of the graduates coming out of those institutions (Other than Top 25)."

However, In the last few years the number of MBA seats in India has grown almost four times from 94,704 in 2006 to 3,52,571 in 2011-12 resulting in a five year compounded annual growth rate of 30%, but the employability rates are falling down.

An expert feel that new management colleges neither have proper infrastructure nor proper faculty and their quality of education is also not as per the requirements of the industry. According to a MeriTrac employability study 2012 which covered 2,264 MBA's from 29 cities and 100 B-schools beyond the Top 25, only 21% are employable. And previous study made in 2007 revealed that the result was 25%.
