Creating a Global Business School

Our directive was simple: “create a Global Business School that would compete with the best in world”. The directive seemed to be in sync with today's buzz-word “global”; almost all B-Schools in the country attach this pre-fix in some from or the other. The association with “global” somehow tends to enhance the perception on quality of education imparted, but what does “creating global B-School” entail?
Having a global curriculum was an important but not a sufficient condition. Much to our amazement, we discovered that every business school in the country including those operating from garage spaces followed a curriculum of top Global Business Schools! This remarkable homogeneity was made possible by the ease with which course outlines could be downloaded from the internet. Then what differentiated the top global B-Schools? It was the pedagogy, which cannot be downloaded from the internet. Therefore, one key pillar of creating a Global Business School is the ability to attract faculty abreast with global pedagogy to deliver the global curriculum.
The next aspect, commonly associated with “global” is the provision of international exchange. International exchange, however, in many occasions gets reduced to foreign trips borne as out of pocket expense by the students; and there is a near complete absence of foreign students coming to the “partnering college”. We were fortunate that our Chancellor, Mr. Naveen Jindal, realized this aspect and invested in his alma-mater – School of Management, University of Texas-Dallas (renamed as Naveen Jindal School of management). As a part of this partnership, Jindal Global Business School (JGBS) sends faculty and students on exchange to Naveen Jindal School of Management and accepts visiting faculty and students from the University of Texas-Dallas. In addition, JGBS is working closely with 38 international Universities around the world.
The third aspect, involved acquiring a global mindset. It is unfortunate that most B-Schools in India operate in silos, while most foreign B-Schools are a part of University systems that help imbibe multi-disciplinary approach. At JGBS, students are encouraged of taking courses from international affairs, law and public policy to develop a much holistic outlook.
The last aspect, we believed was the thought process. The aspiration of creating a Global School has to be big. It is fine to get faculty from the premiere institutions of the country and getting good placements for students in India, but that for us was not the end of the world. We are consciously trying to secure global placements and attract foreign faculty to create a truly global school.

MBA Myths

1. You will be rich. My experience (and from talking to others) is that it will take you 2 or 3 times as long as you think it will take to succeed after Business School. So take it easy running up your student loans and credit card debts expecting you're going to be a rock star later.

2. You are smarter than people without an MBA. You were smart enough to get in to Business School. That doesn't mean you are smarter than other people without an MBA. Stay humble.

3. There's always a right answer. B-School students are usually very analytical and achievement-oriented. They like to think there's always a "best" answer. There's not. The perfect answer is always the enemy of the good enough one. You make decisions you can with the best information available. Life and business today doesn't let you count how many angels can fit on the head of a pin.

4. If you've made it this far (to B-School), you're destined to succeed. In my B-School, there were always amazingly talented executives coming in to give talks on business and life. They'd always compliment us on what a great school we attended and why we had our future by the tail. It made us all feel invincible -- destined to succeed once we set out on our various career paths. It doesn't work that way. I know B-School classmates who've failed miserably, under-achieved, gotten divorced, gotten severely depressed, etc. B-School is a great educational opportunity in life, but you still have to go out there and succeed. Nothing is given to you as a birthright.

5. You know how to "fix" the first few companies you join after school. You've probably worked at companies were people who've been there for 2 decades roll their eyes telling you about the new hotshot MBA who just started and is now telling everyone how to do their jobs. It's so clear to him, yet others find it deeply offensive that he would think he knows how the company works when they've spent countless years there and are still trying to figure it out. All hotshot MBAs should wear tape over their mouths for the first 3 months on the job and not be allowed to "fix" anything.

6. Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) will always tell you what a company is worth. MBAs love DCF. They think the true answer to what a company is worth is always a DCF away. Just crank it out on a spreadsheet or whiteboard, show the boss, and move on to the next problem. Unless you're going to be a sell-side analyst, you'll never do a DCF after B-School. And even the sell-side analysts get their underlings to do them. And no one reading your reports will read them anyway.

7. The "soft" courses (leadership and people management) are least important. I remember talking to the professors from the Management Department at my school who had to teach the courses on leadership and people management. They used to lament that the MBAs never paid attention to them in class. Yet, the Executive MBAs (usually in their 40s or 50s) always told them that these courses were the most important of all the B-School classes they took. You learn after B-School that the perfect answer or strategy means nothing if you can't get people around you to buy in to it and help you achieve it. To do that, you need to motivate them, listen to them, connect with them, and support them when they need it.

8. You are going to be more creative and entrepreneurial after Business School than before. In my experience, B-School makes you less creative, the longer you're in it. They teach courses on entrepreneurship but it's kind of an oxymoron the idea of the analysis paralysis B-School Students being entrepreneurial. You will learn a lot of tools and frameworks in B-School, but you won't learn how to start a company. You just need to start a company.

9. Your peers will give you lots of tips and insights that will help you succeed in your career. In my experience, the majority of B-School students are lemmings. They don't know what they want to do afterwards, so they just do what their peers say they should do (maybe that's why they applied to B-School in the first place). Ten years ago, everyone at my school wanted to be a dot com entrepreneur. That didn't work out so well and most students later went back to being investment bankers or management consultants. Your peers don't know what you want to do with your career. You need to start listening to that voice inside your head.

10. The Ivy League MBAs will be even more successful. An Ivy League credential will be a big plus for you on your resume - no question. However, you have to realize that if you're getting an Ivy League MBA, you're probably 10x more susceptible to the previous 9 lies than other MBAs. Don't let yourself be the next Jeff Skilling, the smart Harvard MBA, who worked at McKinsey and then went to Enron and drove the company off a cliff. He had a golden resume - and where did it get him?

If you treat B-School like an amazing educational experience, chances are you'll get a lot out of it. Just keep your attitude and sense of entitlement in check.

ZAMAC - Zust another marketing club (Official Marketing Club of JGBS)

ZAMAC provides a platform for the marketing enthusiasts to come together and enrich their subject acumen. Through blogs, videos and various talks by industry specialists & discussions, Zamac tries to not only create a buzz about the field but also regularly educate the students about the latest happenings in the world of marketing. The club is divided into 3 main pillars:

MARK EATING: A fully dedicated marketing blog which has articles from various colleges as well as self analysis of upcoming marketing trends. The blog provides an interesting read to those who are in search of good marketing stuff.

MARKET MOHALLA €“ This pillar of ZAMAC is based on classroom discussions on various articles and issues related to the subject. The main aim of this initiative is to share knowledge with fellow students in order to build their excitement towards the subject and make them aware of real life situations faced by companies on an everyday basis

CINE MANCH €“ Various movies/ads/videos related to marketing are regularly showcased in order to give a better understanding of the concepts learnt in class. The aim of this pillar is to understand the subject with a little bit of twists and turns in order to keep the excitement about the subject alive

@saurabh1060 As far as placement of last year our seniors are placed in companies like Fortis Health Care, Luxottica, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ARSS , Sodexo, JSPL, Deloitte . the package for freshers were around 5lakhs/annum where as for experienced candidates it was around 6 to 6.5 lakhs. This was achieved without placement officer where as we have got placement director this year who was earlier placement chairmen IMT Gaziabad. This year expectations are more in terms of no of companies and also packages. As we had already informed that our students have won logistic challenge they will be absorbed in companies like mahindra logistics, DTDC, DHL etc.
10 reasons why Consulting Remains the Top Choice for MBAs

Although finance remains the number one recruiter at around 30% for placements at top business schools, consulting is not far behind at a consistent 20% on average. If one takes into consideration that there are limited number of vacancies in consulting as compared to finance, this gap could be even narrower.

So what could be the reasons why business school graduates like to enter the management consulting profession?

Offered 10 good reasons are:

1. Hooked on solving cases: The case based teaching gets them hooked. As they enter a business school, b-schoolers will find a different method of learning and working. The case based learning provokes thinking, gets them into researching facts, analyzing their findings, and synthesizing them into a big picture for deriving creative solutions. They never thought they could come up with solutions like this before and now they are hooked. Management Consultants tackle their engagements just like a business school case. So it's quite understandable that if they are enjoying their casework at business school, they want more of it.

2. The creative and the non-conformists: Chances are that this is what drew them into a business school to start with. They got tired of doing the same thing and listening to their boss for every day tasks. They want to do things their own way and not follow directions or bury themselves in a process. The consulting profession is the only profession that calls for maximum room for creativity. There is no micro-management by the boss other than the “dreaded deadline”. They are given the brief on their assignment and then off they go.

3. It is a gateway to interesting work: Management consultants get exposed to interesting work right away. Examples include Mergers & Acquisitions, Investment Banking, Venture Capital, Private Equity, Corporate Strategy, Transformation and Research. Understandably, this will be only true for those entering the top tier management-consulting firms but candidates can still aspire to build their credibility in sideline projects in smaller or lesser known consulting firms.

4. Provides exposure to sunrise sectors: By definition management consulting projects gravitate towards sectors that are experiencing a paradigm shift. Currently this is happening in Energy, Health and Information Technology. With the interest in environmental issues, energy crisis and alternative energy interest, consultants are in high demand to provide research, direction and transformational advice. The health sector is experiencing cost and regulatory pressure which is inviting thought leadership from the consulting industry on making necessary business process changes, effective use of technology and call for application in emerging science such as biotechnology.

5. Consultants play in many sandboxes: Most likely an MBA graduate would not want to get pigeonholed into one company's vision, technology and ways of doing business. They would want to play in many different sandboxes, right? Well that is what consultants get to do. Each project is different because each situation is different in the consulting world. They will get into different cultures, different technologies, different markets, different infrastructure and even different size budgets each time. This makes it challenging, interesting and a valuable learning experience for them.

6.Puts an MBA in the “board room”: If not literally, as management consultants, candidates are presented with finding solutions to the toughest issues a company is facing today. This means that their work will have visibility all the way to the CXO level – something not possible in any other profession – at least, not when they are starting out their careers.

7. Preparation for going their own way: Consulting profession prepares candidates well for going into business for themselves or entering a startup. This is because only in management consulting one can quickly develop skills for tough decisions, tight deadlines, getting the numbers to work, selling, purchasing, motivating, politics, influencing, handling conflicts and communicating effectively. Learning all these skills is possible in other jobs but will take twice as long.

8. A stepping-stone before deciding on a long-term path: When starting out, young professionals may not be sure of their final calling. For example, do they want to be in a leadership role and rise up to become a CEO? Do they like marketing or sales? Do they prefer to stay in engineering, technology or R&D;? Do they like operations role such as customer service, purchasing, accounting, or HR? If they are not sure then they can enter management consulting and experience all fronts and decide later where they want to go. Whichever line they pick, they will surely have ample experience and confidence to fast track to the top when they make up their minds.

9. Builds their personal network: Consulting is a profession that is guaranteed to make ones LinkedIn connections reach the 500+ mark faster than any other career. Moreover, it will give them a far richer and diverse set of connections as opposed to any other profession. As we all know in these days of social media, career progression is very much tied to the relationships one will build.

10. The need to get a faster return on investment: Last but not the least, consulting happens to be a well-paid profession so chances of repaying that expensive business school loan are quicker compared to other jobs. No one objects to a ROI that is sooner rather than later.

On an ending note, it would be improper to portray management consulting as a flawless career choice. Consulting is an intense profession with long hours and frequent travel. More than 50% who enter will exit this profession within three to four years. On the brighter side, no ex-consulting professional will deny that it was an exhilarating experience and that it helped them tremendously in the formative days of their career.
