The IIM fallacy

In Education, Management & Leadership on July 2, 2010 at 09:02

Yes, the IIMs are a route into the riches for people coming from the Indian lower middle or lower classes. They are an easy shot into the upper middle classes, and if you’re lucky, hardworking or a genius, even into the ‘rich’ classes.

They are, however, nowhere close to or on the way to developing their students into become leaders in a global economy.

Can the IIMs really claim to be the ‘best in class’ if all they are producing are mediocre managers forming the bulging global middle class?

I won’t, actually can’t, answer that question. If you can, please use the comment space.
