B-Schools beeline to India

Wednesday, 15 November 2006

It pays to remember that the provision of management education such as MBA degrees, is as much a business as a way to provide certain skills. Indians have been travelling to the US and UK and other countries to get their MBAs for decades. But only now are the worlds business schools making a beeline to set up in India, for ‘research’.

They, like everyone else, have seen the colour of money that the Indian middle class will throw at getting the next status symbol. The pity of it is that we Indians will probably take this as another feather in our cap, smugly telling each other how important we are and how the world is now acknowledging our greatness.

Update: I got sent a link to another story on this.
