There is a shortage of eminent professors at bachelors’ level management. With more and more institutes joining the professional courses bandwagon, do you think professional / self-financing courses will become yet another boom?
ANS: Yes and No. Yes, because every passing day we are seeing more and more students wanting to involve themselves in Management courses because it helps them understand the business world and face completion. No, because there is a shortage of eminent professors which results in deteriorating the quality of the course.
Today, we often come across students committing suicide out of failure, depression or tension of exams. What do you have to say about this?
