‘Vikas Rally’ on Oct 23 will be a historic one: Sohna MLA


Gurugram, Oct 21 | A ‘Vikas Rally’ will be held in Gurugrm on October 23 to draw attention towards the issues and the demands related to the Sohna assembly constituency in Haryana.

Talking about the event at a press conference on Thursday, Sohna MLA Sanjay Singh claimed that the rally scheduled to be organised in Sirmathala village would be the “biggest rally held in the state in the last two years”.

Singh said that Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar would be the chief guest and he would also unveil a 23-feet tall statue of Maharana Pratap on that day.

The MLA said that in the rally, many demands related to the development of the Sohna assembly constituency will be placed before the Chief Minister.

These will mainly focus on projects related to the health and education of the region.

Singh said that the Union Civil Aviation Minister had talked about setting up five heli hubs in the past and due to its proximity to Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and KMP Expressway, Sohna is the most suitable for setting up a heli hub. The demand in this regard will also be placed before the Chief Minister.

“Demands would be made to upgrade the government health hospital in Sohna, to open a CHC hospital in Bhondsi, to build a sports stadium, to open skill development institutes, to upgrade 20-22 schools and to open new animal hospitals,” he said.

Efforts will also be made to bring Sohna on the country’s tourism map.

He informed me that the boating demo was done in Damdama lake recently.

“Sohna has great potential for tourism development. There are ancient springs of hot water here. Possibilities would be explored to bring water from Agra Canal so that water can be supplied from there to Badkhal, Damdama and Kotla lakes. Not only this, but there is also a plan to build an amusement park and install a statue of Sardar Patel in the Sohna area,” Singh said.

The MLA said that in the last two years, despite the coronavirus-induced crisis, many development work has been done in the Sohna assembly constituency.

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.
