A large number of MBA colleges are scattered throughout our country and Master in Business Administration is a chosen course next to Engineering and medical courses. The reason is obvious. Growth and expansion in the industry sector necessitates expertise in management. MBA colleges offer management in several areas but the chiefly preferred and offered choices are Finance, HR and Marketing. These three specializations are in demand in every business.
Although all colleges affiliated to the same university follow a common curriculum, there continues to be a gap between college and the corporate world. When students are recruited, it is found that although they have sound theoretical knowledge, they lack the skills necessary for jobs. As managers, they are required to possess skills like communication skills, soft skills, presentation skills, and a good personality and so on. Managers have to present project proposals before experts and a substantial size of audience. This is not possible if they are not trained in public speaking, if they lack confidence and if they cannot put forth a topic systematically. There are few MBA colleges that groom students in presentation skills and make them job ready in the true sense.
