K’taka Police cracks jewellery store shootout & dacoity case, 6 arrested


Mysuru (Karnataka), Aug 28 | Karnataka Police have cracked the sensational shoot out and dacoity case that took place in Mysuru on August 23 and arrested six persons, the police said on Saturday.

The miscreants, who entered the Amruth Gold and Silver Palace in the pretext of customers, had closed the rolling shutter and robbed gold jewels. While escaping they shot a passerby youth Chandru in the head and killed him.

The incident had taken place in broad daylight in a crowded place on the main road and had shocked the city and the state. The police department came under fire from all directions in the backdrop of the case.

The police have obtained CCTV footage of the crime and formed five special squads to nab the culprits. The special teams travelled across various states of north India and tracked the dacoits.

The investigations revealed that two persons known to the victim, one residing in Mysuru and another in Bengaluru had given ‘supari’ to rob the jewel store in the backdrop of a business rivalry. The supari was given to the accused from north India.

Director General and IGP Praveen Sood stated that the special teams have travelled round the clock across various states of north India. The teams nabbed the accused from West Bengal, Bihar, Jammu and Kashmir and Maharashtra. The two persons were secured in Mysuru and Bengaluru on Friday.

The local businessmen who conspired the crime had criminal antecedents. They had served jail sentences and given ‘supari’ to loot the jewel store. The police department had announced Rs 5 lakh reward for the investigating team.

The accused arrested in various states will be produced before the local courts and then will be brought to Mysuru for further investigations, the police said.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal Campusutra.com  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
