Dear All,

I look forward to your responses for nagging questions that challenge our education. Of late the students, Engineering and MBA, have started posing questions that are: "Why should we study(slogging out) all the courses (subjects) prescribed by our Universities and case studies, projects and doing assignments as the recruitment process is: Aptitude, GD and Personal Interview? Is in't is enough, if a student concentrates on these areas to get campus placement? Any how, there will be induction programmes organisational manuels and training programmes. Won't they help us manage our careers?"

I think your views will help me change the perspectives of the students.

With wishes,

Confucius said: "I do, I understand"

So while students are in campus, they need to study in rooms, libraries and in classes.

Who is not slogging - name a person or profession where slogging is not the order. How can MBAs claim that they will get the premium slots in corporate without slogging. A visit to a residential professional institute around midnight will reveal how seriously students are studying or enjoying. Very few are found taking rest in bed.

People with good aptitude, skills in GD and apt in clearing the interview, get the jobs faster, sometimes they get better jobs. But in my experience, people who learn while doing a project or assignment, don't mind in sloggng for implementing or learning a thing - go to their goals faster than some of the brightest who think twice before slogging or taking a difficult task/assignment.

One must realize that a few basic skills are common in people who are leading the pack:
Communication, Courage, Enthusiasm, Energy, Risk-taking, Reading habit, Thinking...

Let everyone understand how a student clearing MBA or any professional course is going to acquire these skills. Involving in many activities and projects, one can hone these skills. Subject knowledge is the base on which you claim to become an expert.

'Competence is demonstrated ability to apply knowledge and skills' - ISO 9000:2005

To me both are required in equal proportion.
