Industry interface is the most critical differentiator for Business Schools worldwide. In India B-Schools are facing criticism for failing to impart useful skills, failing to prepare good leaders, and failing to lead graduates to corporate jobs due to very low level of interface with industry. Industry rather than just being the customers of business school output today shall also become stakeholders and partners in progress of the management education.
It was a pleasure to chair a session on "Academia Industry Collaboration" during the 'Future of Management Education Conclave 2019' organised by @BWEducation today. The presence of Eminent Panelists made the session very informative and meaningful.
