An MBA Degree from Top Business School is a Worthwhile Investment

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from a top-level business school in India or anywhere in the world could be that master key which could unlock a plethora of opportunities for you.  After successful completion of this highly prestigious degree program, you can be assured of a highly successful and financially rewarding career in some of the best companies in India and abroad. An MBA from a reputable business school can get for you incredibly high pay package along with exceptionally high return on investments (ROI). An attractive ROI is important because MBA programs do not come cheap. Majority of MBA programs offered by first-class and even by second-string institutes is going to cost you above 1 million rupees.  In absence of high salary and attractive ROI, it can be incredibly tough for a candidate to pay his student loans and sundry other liabilities.


Owing to the plethora of benefits it offers, and the way it accelerates your career, an MBA degree from a well-known business school is more like the proverbial golden goose which will lay golden eggs for you forever.  The demand for this professional degree which surprisingly is not more than 100 years old has reached unprecedented level in India.  You will be hard pressed to find an MBA graduate from a top business school who has not received offers from top companies before the completion of his/her course. Some people opt out for campus placements voluntarily and that is a different matter altogether.

Top notch business schools have world class infrastructure and top class faculty which together provide a wholesome learning environment. Strongfocus on sharpening students’ business acumen through a modern and relevant curriculum which efficiently reflects the need of the contemporary business world, top level management institutes provide business market ready graduates. The knowledge these quality business school provides is of immediate practical relevance and students are kept up-to-date through the institute’s unique research capabilities.MBA graduates as such from established business schools are prized assetscommanding a premium in the job market.  However, you must remember and remember it well that the worth of an MBA degree is directly proportional to the institute it is earned from.  There may be one or two exceptional cases, but it is only the graduates of top class management institutes who are offered excellent placement opportunities and a bank-balance building salary.

For the rest, the story is no different from lakhs of other students who are ready to join the workforce but lack enough opportunities to showcase their talent owing to a highly saturated job market.

It is of utmost importance that you carry out thorough prior research before making a final commitment. An MBA degree from a second-string management institute is nothing but a disaster in the making. Bottom-rung business schools neither have the infrastructure or the desire to impart quality education which can help a student learn in-depth views of state-of-the-art applications of management models. Low quality business schools are stark failures when it comes to the task of providing educationwhich is exact match between the student’s objectives and the employee’s expectations.  They are just in the market to cash on the prevalent craze about an MBA degree in India. People should be aware of such institutes and do their researches well to eliminate any possibilities of wasting their time and money on an institute which offers them a degree that for all intents and purposes is worthless in the market.

An MBA on the other hand from top level management institutes provide students with an in-depth understanding of the business world and build the skills necessary to excel in complex international settings in top management positions. This is the reason you are strongly advised to go for best MBA colleges in Gurgaon, if you wish to pursue this two year post graduate degree in management. Bets institutes offer the MBA degree in gurgaon which equips the students with the skills and the confidence to efficiently carry out their duties as managers in variety of organizations. Top level program offered by best in class management institutes or colleges combines theoretical understanding with practical experience and skill building.

Limited powers to parents in Delhi’s Edu Bills: Critics

NEW DELHI: On Friday,amid much drama, education minister Manish Sisodia tabled two bills that he evidently believes will alter the education scene in Delhi. Incidentally, the critics of the bills believe that too but for entirely different reasons. While intended to bring relief to parents and children, some who have reviewed the bills say they have “no role for parents” in them.

Lawyer and education activists Khagesh Jha “welcomes” the provisions on capitation fee and screening in nursery admissions but feels the The Delhi School Education (Amendment) Bill, 2015 is shoddily drafted and lifts safeguards on admissions into other classes. While the bill prohibits “screening” and “capitation fee” at entry-level, it says the “head of school may subject the child to any screening procedure for admission in class beyond elementary level.” This being placed in the act, argues Jha, effectively nullifies Rule 145 of the Delhi School Education Act and Rules 1973 that addressed admissions till Class 12 and contained provisions for admission tests. “Now schools can admit on the basis of your shirt-colour. There are schools that add entire sections after elementary,” says Jha. He also adds the definition of “entry-level” as “pre-primary” or “pre-school” may lead to schools adding classes at age two. “That is permissible by law.”

In Jha’s interpretation, the bills “don’t have any role for parents or children.” The proposed insertion, Section 27A (2), says offences shall be “non-cognizable and bailable and no court shall take cognizance of any offence under this act except on the complaint of an officer not below the rank of such officer as the government may authorise in this behalf.” Then, section 16(A)(3), says “Director (education) shall be the competent authority to impose the fine mentioned in section 16(A) (on screening and capitation fees).” “What this amounts to,” explains Jha, “is the directorate will complain, inquire and judge all cases related to capitation fee and screening.” The authority to impose fines was, till now, with the High Court by default. Jha further adds that no violation on the screening and donation front will lead to imprisonment as section 16(A) which addresses these has been excluded from the purview of section 27(A) on “offence and penalties.”

The complaints mechanism proposed in the Delhi School (Verification of Accounts and Refund of Excess Fee) Bill, 2015, is problematic too. Lawyer Ashok Agarwal had earlier described the proposed mechanism as “a trade-union negotiating and industrial dispute.” Section 7(1) of the bill says, “Any complaint relating to utilization of school fund or non refund of excess fee in terms of the order issued under sub-section (2) of section 6, may be made by parents of at least twenty students or one fifth of the total strength of students in such school, whichever is less, before the committee in such manner as may be prescribed.” “It is hard to fine one parent willing to challenge a school’s authority,” said Agarwal.

Permanent affiliation to private schools in Punjab

Permanent affiliation to private schools in Punjab: Govt

CHANDIGARH: Punjab government today said it has decided to grant permanent affiliation to all the private schools of the state to relieve them from the cumbersome process of applying for affiliation every year.

The decision to this effect was taken by Punjab Education Minister Daljit Singh Cheema in a meeting with the officials of the department.

With this decision of the education department, permanent affiliation has been granted to 9,487 schools.

Disclosing this here today, Cheema said earlier, all the private schools of the state were granted affiliation on yearly basis and they had to apply every year to get affiliation under Right to Education (RTE)Act.

He informed that the schools have been granted permanent affiliation, following the guidelines of RTE Act in letter and spirit.

Cheema also appealed to the managements all the private schools not to misuse the big relief granted by the Education Department and always follow the guidelines of RTE Act.

He made it clear that if any of the schools is found violating the guidelines, then it would be strictly proceeded against.

Minister also instructed the departmental officials to keep regular checks on the schools to make sure that the RTE Act guidelines are being adhered to.

In the meeting, Director General School Education Pardeep Agarwal, DPI (Secondary Education) Balbir Singh Dhol, DPI (Elementary Education) Harbans Singh Sandhu and Additional State Project Director Gurjeet Singh were present.

CISCE board revamps syllabus, pattern of question papers

BENGALURU: ICSE schools will go the CBSE way. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) board on Friday revamped its syllabus, infrastructure and training methods. The board took this decision in its 58th annual meeting with the objective to centralize education to frame class XII (ISC) question papers on the lines of CBSE pattern from 2018.

TOI was the first to report this last month . Accordingly, the specimen question papers for ISC exams 2018 in the following subjects physics, chemistry, biology, and maths have been prepared as per the pattern followed by CBSE, the specimen question papers deal with questions on recall, understanding, application, analysis and evaluation.

In class X (ICSE) level, syllabi for history, civics, geography, maths and physics have been reviewed for 2018 exams. This is to ensure that in addition to conforming to present day educational trends, the syllabus is also relevant, flexible, and meaningful in content.

Gerry Arathoon, chief executive and secretary of CISCE said specimen question papers have already been prepared on the CBSE pattern and the pattern is framed possibly with an eye on competitive exams conducted by the CBSE.

In keeping with the requirements of many Universities for higher education after Class XII, the break-up of marks of the theory and practical components at the ISC level, for the subjects – computer science, fashion designing, physical education, Indian music (Hindustani), carnatic and Western Music has been revised.

According to CISCE, the existing mark breakup of 50% theory and 50% practical has now been changed to70% theory and 30% practical, in order that these subjects be considered as elective subjects. This change will be effective from the ISC Year 2016 Examination onwards.

The specimen question papers for these subjects have already been sent to schools and are also available on the council website

Delhi University’s Indraprastha College wins 2015 Titans Cup

NEW DELHI: It was a high quality, deeply knowledgeable and incisively argued Titans Cup debate on Friday evening as 6 Delhi colleges squared off against each other to debate the motion: “The West’s insistence on strict environmental controls is a death knell for developing countries.” With the UN conference on climate change in Paris just two weeks away, the issues discussed were timely.

While speakers for the motion spoke passionately on the West’s hypocrisy on environmental standards, speakers against the motion argued equally forcefully that climate change was a life and death issue and too important to become hostage to politics between rich and poor countries.

The Titans Cup Debate is an annual debate organized by the Hindu College alumni association and consists of 6 teams of alumni. Each team comprises two members, one speaking for and the other against the motion.

In her opening address former principal of Hindu College, Dr Kavita Sharma spoke of the hallowed traditions of debate at Delhi University and the importance of a robust exchange of views in today’s times. Ravi Burman of the Hindu College alumni association pointed out how the Titans cup debate was growing in influence each year, this year women speakers out-numbering men and a larger number of youthful debaters being showcased rather than veterans.

The debate spanned many issues in the growth versus ecology dilemma. While law student Harsh Jain of SRCC argued that for developing countries its all about roti kapda aur makaan and not following western diktat, Usha Kelkar, Ashoka Fellow and alumna of Indraprastha College said we only target the West because we need an enemy to blame for our environmental failures. “The anti-West discourse on climate change is only a manufactured narrative for strategic reasons,” she said.

Former IAS officer Nita Chowdhury disputed this strongly. In a comprehensive and nuanced presentation, Chowdhury said the West’s environmental concerns have to take second place to Indian food security and West-imposed restrictions on fisheries, for example can damage livelihoods of millions.

Former civil servant and founder of Parvez Dewan of St Stephen’s College, likened the West’s approach to environment as a hippopotamus asking a colony of ants to lose weight. Kalikesh Singh Deo, BJD MP speaking for St Stephen’s, said climate change impacts the poor most of all and should be a common goal rather than a divided one.

Speaking for the motion, Piyush Chopra, deputy GM of Essar and alumna of Miranda House, said the rich are the worst polluters while graduate student Yashika Bansal of SRCC said there should be no trade off between economics and environment and India needed to adopt green technologies to grow. Former Oxfam CEO, Nisha Agarwal speaking for Miranda House presented a range of statistics pointing to the seriousness of climate change and said the threat was too real to allow the luxury of political posturing.

In a colourful somewhat unorthodox presentation, TV personality Shivani Wazir Pasrich even spilled black powder on her white sari to demonstrate what pollution and bad air are doing to citizens. Radio Mirchi associate VP Akash Banerjee speaking for Hindu College however said the issue should not be personalized and instead the billion dollar hypocrisy of the West needed to be exposed.

TV anchor Kajori Sen also speaking for Hindu College said rather than create a binary opposition between ecological sustainability and GDP, India should look at ways to leverage the West’s environmental concerns to create high growth.

Psychologist Annima Bahukhandi speaking for IP College asked if the West was serious about climate change where is the money in the climate change funds?

At the end of the detailed and punchily argued debate, the motion was put to vote where the House was split down the middle, half saying the West was forcing the developing world to follow its climate agenda, the other half saying there was no western insistence and climate change was a real and pressing issue for India too.

Indraprastha College was adjudged the best team and won the Titans Cup this year. The runner up was Hindu College. The best speaker award went to Nita Chowdhury and runner-up was Akash Banerjee.

He said that agriculture and related activities constitute the mainstay of the state’s economy and necessary steps should be taken to ensure that people related with it get the requisite facilities.

While interacting with the people, the Deputy Chief Minister said that Kissan Mela would soon be organized to create necessary awareness among farmers about the various welfare schemes being launched by the government.

He said necessary instructions have already been given to the officers of the PDD department to undertake the augmentation of electric infra so that the electricity problem, if any, is resolved.

RTE campaigners issue statement against Delhi government’s education bills

RTE campaigners issue statement against Delhi government's education bills
A group of Right to Education activists have issued a statement “express[ing] deep concern” about education-related decisions by the Delhi government.

NEW DELHI: A group of Right to Education activists who are part of the India Campaign for Education, has issued a statement “express[ing] deep concern” about education-related decisions by the Delhi Government.

In a statement, over a dozen activists and educationists, including former chairperson of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Shantha Sinha, have objected to the deletion of Section 10(1) of the Delhi School Education Act, 1973 and the dropping of non-detention policy. “Doing away with pay parity of teachers and other employees of recognised private schools with those of government schools. We strongly believe that this is in contravention of the right to equality and is in negation of all the gains made by teachers to recognise their services as qualified professionals. More importantly it dilutes the quality of education,” says the statement.

On NDP — or Section 16 of the Right to Education Act 2009, it says, “In deleting this clause, we are afraid that children will be demoralized and pushed out of school. Instead, the government should make every effort to improve quality of education, and ensure that children are learning, and moving from one class to the next without disruption. We would like to add that the people have high expectations of the Delhi government which they consider stands for values of equality and democracy. The Delhi government’s actions on important issues should be an example for all other state governments in the country, and be setting the trend in favour of the poor and their aspirations for social transformation.Hence, it is expected that the government drops the above retrogressive measures, and retains the existing provisions in support of children’s right to education.”

Apart from Sinha, the statement has been signed by Babu Mathew, John Kurien, Pravin Mahajan, Ashok Agarwal, Dayaram, Venkat Reddy, Dipa Dixit, Suryakant Kulkarni, G. Ganesan, Suraj Kumar, Kalyan Dangar and Lalit Babar.
