Employability after the Graduate Diploma at ISBF

Posted on May 18, 2017 by -  | Academics | Blog

In a highly competitive employment landscape, with numerous talented candidates vying for the same few coveted spots in the industry, being recruited by a reputed firm is increasingly challenging. The quantity of manpower produced for employment each year by institutions of higher education is witnessing an unprecedented rise, due to India’s demographic profile, rising incomes and greater access to a college education. However, as quality fails to keep pace, the employability problem persists, and the question of whether India will be able to reap a “demographic dividend” looms larger than ever.

The question is – do job seekers in India possess the skills required by the employers they desire to work with? A recent report in the Indian Express suggested otherwise. It highlighted that excluding graduates from the top 20 business schools in India, only 7 % of business school graduates in the country are employable. This means that barring a handful of postgraduate institutions in the country, most are producing graduates who lack the skills sought by most workplaces. The report laid the blame squarely on the poor quality of education, and more specifically listed sub-standard pedagogy, learning by rote and poor faculty as key reasons for graduates’ lack of sub-par skills.

It is precisely this huge gap between the increasing demand and poor supply of quality manpower which ISBF bridges with its application-oriented curriculum and industry-relevant education. All the Diploma programmes offered at ISBF for postgraduates are designed and assessed by the prestigious London School of Economics and Political science (LSE). They are focused on skilling students to apply rigorous theoretical learning to real world situations and problems, which helps increase their employability considerably.
