In the beginning the blog gives us an insight of how the MBA course evolved from its infancy. This brilliantly sets up the context as to what is to follow. The Indian connection is introduced as we move forward. Some data is presented to drive home a point as to how Management Studies dominate the academia today. It goes on to analyze as to how the B-schools add value to a Management Professional and also how at the moment Engineers hold sway over this discipline. As a closing note it points out the need for Management Education to change both from the business perspective and also from the perspective of the student. I totally agree with the Author here in 2 aspects the management education fee structure shouldn’t be too high but should be made affordable. Similarly the glass ceiling of the Engineers when it comes to the MBA course needs to be shattered and more inclusiveness needs to be there when it comes to non-engineering students. I believe there is a lot of raw talent and untapped potential over there and their background of Social Sciences can be leveraged to be able to make a difference not only in the business sector but also in the rural and backward areas of our country. Simple and luicid style of writing is witnessed in this blog . The data presented is mainly to bring out the value of the MBA education in India. The blog does not put in too much information for the reader to process. A natural flow is seen right from the beginning of the blog as towards its end. Technical jargon is not used and is easy to understand for everyone. Minimal amount of data is used to support the idea which prevents the reader’s attention from wavering. It presents a key idea as to why MBA education should not be very expensive that it becomes out of reach of the common man. It also point out to the upper hand that the Engineers now have over the management education. Moreover, it concludes by indicating that a paradigm shift is needed in the management education both from the giver’s perspective as well as from the receiver’s perspective. These I feel are the key ideas that as a reader I can take back.
