Currently business management education is perhaps the most commercialized of all the higher education programmes in India. Thanks to glossy advertisements in the media/websites/publicity brochures and tall claims made by every business school, both branded and mediocre, regarding the infrastructure, faculty, program package, industry placement, on campus recruitment, tie up with overseas universities and foreign education tours, the management education has caught the attention of news magazines. The ranking of B schools by the reputed English magazines periodically illustrates the significance attached to B-education in India. The mushrooming of business schools, especially in the private sector, as a consequence of the liberalized recognition policy of the government and the malleable affiliation procedures of the local universities or, for that matter, of even the national affiliating bodies, have left the standard and quality of education much to be desired. There seems to be lot of money that can be mopped up by every business management institute from the anxious students who are keen to get the much sought after MBA degree at any cost. Obviously the standard and quality of the course are at huge risk and unless stringent measures are taken to stem the rot the prospective students of hundreds of business management institutes face the risk of becoming unemployable in both organized and unorganized sectors of Indian economy
