offer ample opportunities for hands-on experience
and research as well as the right kind of
placements. This is brought about by the fact
that most of these schools have close links
with corporates belonging to the respective
fields, for example, between IRMA and Amul
and the National Diary Development Board;
or KJ Somaiya and Pantaloon.
In India, the options include rural management
(Institute of Rural Management,
Anand, Gujarat; NMIMS, Mumbai), forest management (Indian
Institute of Forest Management, Bhopal), retail
management (KJ Somaiya and Welingkar, Mumbai),
telecom management (IIT-Delhi), insurance
management (NMIMS, Mumbai), human resource
management (XLRI, MDI, TISS) among others.
