4 Reasons that explain the surge of business management in India


As India’s economy grows and matures to accommodate start-ups and MNCs, the demand for skilled employees has burgeoned too. While the IT sector drove the demand for white-collar employees in the early days, business management graduates are the most sought-after commodity in the job market now. Business management courses mould students into potential managers by arming them with a potent combination of knowledge, soft skills, network, and experience. It is unsurprising then that business management courses are enjoying a surge in popularity:

1. They arm students with various hard and soft skills:

Business management courses provide students with a veritable set of hard and soft skills, and shape their professional skills. Business management graduates are ready to be deployed in the world of management right off the boat, obviating the need for companies to spend precious time and resources training and grooming them. 

Companies prefer managers with a strong suite of soft skills since these help them navigate the demanding world of management. Desirable soft skills include communication, conflict resolution, teamwork, flexibility, technological adaptability, and leadership. Business management courses teach their students these skills through direct training as well as indirect exposure to situations wherein these skills may be developed.

2. They improve career opportunities by strengthening your CV:

The white-collar job market can be pretty cut-throat, and a business management degree, especially from a reputed institute, can help candidates set themselves apart. When interviewers see that a candidate has completed a business management course, they can rest assured that they will come with a set of knowledge and skills, not to mention some sort of professional network. The knowledge and skills will reduce the amount of time and resources they have to expend on training the candidate, whereas the professional network could be an asset for the company.

3. They empower students with entrepreneurial skills:

Business management courses make good managers, but it is hardly a rule that these managers can only put their skills to use in existing companies. The skillset, network, and experience that a business management course gives its students can also be put to use in starting a company. The same soft skills and knowledge that make business management graduates so valuable to employers can also be leveraged to launch a start-up; they empower students to have confidence in their abilities, thus increasing their risk appetite. 

4. They give students a well-rounded education:

Most business management courses are structured to provide students with a foundation of general management principles, followed by specialised knowledge in a field of their choosing. The number of specialisations available to students has increased and now includes information technology, finance, supply chain management, logistics, production management, sales, marketing, international relations, public relations, human resources, etc. This education model provides students with holistic, multi-disciplinary knowledge, making them adaptable and cross-functional.

The value proposition of business management education is evident, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to give their career a boost. Business management courses come in various shapes and sizes now and can be the launching pad to an exciting and formidable career.
