the pain and the gain

From among the sectors most impacted by the coronavirus, B-Schools is the least talked about. Yet, the degree of impact is probably no less devastating than on sectors such as hotels, restaurants or tourism. After all, campuses have been shut; management development programmes — significant revenue earners — have ground to a halt. Classes continue online but the trauma in the industry is all over. CAT registrations fell 5.7 per cent this year after peaking at 2.44 lakh last year; 197 B-Schools applied to regulator AICTE for closure this year as opposed to just 59 last year.

A GROUP OF SECOND-YEAR MBA students from XLRI-Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur, persuaded Prof L. Gurunathan, Associate Professor in Human Resource Management, to postpone his course on compensation to the next semester. They did not want to attend the course from their star professor online. But since B-Schools are not opening anytime soon, the elective will now be offered ed online much to the students’ dismay. “We can’t postpone it anymore,” says Gurunathan.

RAJESH ANAM COMPLETED his MBA from a Mumbai-based business school earlier this year. But even before he could get his degree, he had an offer letter from a leading digital marketing company. Just when Anam believed he had secured his future, Covid-19 brought the economy to a halt. Several businesses shut down as a consequence of the prolonged lockdown and many were stranded without jobs. A multitude of businesses were also unable to honour their hiring commitments on campuses across the country, since they were grappling with survival issues. Anam’s employer also sent him a polite regret letter saying the company won’t be able to honour its commitment of hiring him. “I don’t have a grouse against them since most of their clients are in travel, hospitality and retail sectors,…
