10 Reasons why your MBA and Bschool’s Faculty pool determine a lot for you

You check the top ten. You skim through magazines, websites, surveys and ratings but then who and what to trust amidst the clutter? Before spending all that money over a Management course you might be constantly asking yourself the basic question- what makes a good MBA school or programme? The answer is an easy one- good faculty determines a lot about your MBA- more than you can imagine.

pgdm2bin2bkerala

  1. The importance of a good teacher has not changed even in today’s time. A good faculty is imperative in providing you the foundation upon which you’ll build your entire career in Management.

  1. Passionate educators, accomplished scholars and esteemed international business professionals usually come together to impart you your managerial wisdom and build it up to suit industry standards. Reason? They talk from experience. Google/ Wikipedia, does not.

  1. The knowledge that is imparted to you depends on the people who teach you, so once again the importance of good faculty cannot be overlooked.

  1. The books can only do so much. You need a good teacher to help you understand what you are reading, better.

  1. A teacher who imparts the knowledge of a sphere is not only the requirement for representation, but also a supporting plan for an individual to remain in the sphere of learning.

  1. In Europe, however, the mission of the university was changing from merely passing along existing knowledge to the creation of new knowledge, the process we know as research. A professor was no longer just a teacher; he or she was also a researcher. The concept of the Research-driven University was born. Today a good MBA is one, which has a lot of research-schloars or faculty delivering it. So give proper attention to the faculty list before narrowing down on your b-school.

  1. The business schools were often regarded as little more than trade schools, teaching case histories by telling “war stories” of questionable generalizability to other business situations. Business was for students who couldn’t make it in engineering or pre-med. Stung by this criticism, a few business schools in research universities took a hard look at what was being taught and began to carry out research in their own fields (Source- Forbes). That is when good B-schools started rising. Needless to say, faculty played the first and foremost role in shaping them.

  1. Good faculty does not only teach in a B-school but also uses his/ her strong professional network to help in placing students in good companies.

  1. A slightly lower rated B-School might have a better student success rate because of its faculty.

The most important thing about faculty being important is that the bond you forge with your teachers tests and decides the bonds and decisions you make in real life.
