Why students Diversity in MBA Matters?

Management colleges seek students from diverse backgrounds

Good management schools abroad have students from a variety of academic  backgrounds, but most of the managements students in India are comprised of Engineers.

Good management schools abroad have students from a variety of academic backgrounds. Such students with multiple perspectives, lend rich insights to class discussions. That is not the case with Indian scenario.  Most of management students are comprised of Engineers. The challenge for Indian School is to increase the presence of non-engineers in the classroom. This would enhance diversity in the classroom and would expose the leaders of the Indian business world informed Prof. Prof. Gautam Ghosh, Director, TSM Madurai, one of the oldest B School of South India. 

TSM Madurai which opened applications for MBA and PDGM reached Vishakhapatnam scouting students from Telugu States. 

Along Engineers  among  management  students doesnt do any good to management colleges, he added. We look for diversity of students in Finance, HR, Marketing, Operations, Business Analytics, Systems, General   Management and Economics the electives that are offered

Founded in 1962, fifty four years ago, it is probably one of the ten oldest management colleges in the country. The then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru inaugurated the building. The motto of this college is "Learn to learn"

Classroom experience is enhanced by a diversity of thought which is generated by bringing together people from different backgrounds, Prof. Gautam Ghosh said.

The diversity of a university’s faculty, staff, and students influences its strength, productivity, and intellectual personality. Diversity of experience.

Research shows that diverse students in a management class room are more productive, creative and  innovative than homogeneous groups, and suggests that developing a diverse  faculty will enhance teaching and research too.
