Decline in MBA Employment Opportunities

The charm of tier-2 B-schools among the aspirants is fading and the employability rate of management graduates is also declining. Also the doubts are being raised over the quality of management institutes ( excluding the top 25 ) and their graduates.

There are a total of 10,000 to 12,000 management and engineering institutes in India and the quality of the education offered at these institutes is in question. The management education sector in India witnessed a boom in late nineties as the number of B-schools was on rise. But the scenario is gradually changing as the students have realized that a management degree from such B-schools will not fetch them a job.

The number of MBA seats in the country has increased from 94,704 in 2006-07 to 3, 52,571 in 2011-12. This fourfold increase in MBA seats has resulted in a 5 year compounded yearly growth rate of 30% but the employability rate has declined.

Also some of these management colleges are offering course without having a proper infrastructure and quality teachers which Results in poor quality of education. This is the reason many B-schools are on the verge of closure.
