Honouring B-School excellence
The growth of business schools in India has been tremendous in the past few years. It has more than 4,500 Business Schools and experts say that this number is only expected to increase in the coming years. Bureaucracy Today undertook the task of assessing Top 50 Business Schools in India. The survey took into account and assigned values thoughtfully to various parameters in order to rightfully assess and calculate the accurate worth of a business school in the present-day scenario.
During this process, the BT Jury made various interesting observations in relation to B-Schools today and popular trends among students as well as corporates. While the IIMs with their impact on India’s education system still top perception rankings, an array of newer institutions are definitely doing their best to raise the bar for the quality of education in the country. We thank the BT-Business Schools Excellence Awards Jury for assessing and judging the best institutions in this country.
The recent case of suspended IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal has brought the attention of the whole nation towards an issue of grave concern. An honest and able officer, Nagpal paid a very high and harsh price for doing her duty. Her suspension points out a very harsh and disappointing reality of male chauvinism prevalent in the UP Government.
One would have expected that Akhilesh Yadav as a young CM would encourage more transperancy but sadly he seems to be following the same trends of politics as his predecessors and is keen on pushing UP further into the dark ages. Rather than putting a stop to the criminal activity of the sand mafia which was being investigated by Durga, Yadav has vehemently supported her suspension thereby reinforcing rumours of links between the sand mafia and Samajwadi Party leaders. Further disappointing is the colouring of this issue on communal lines by various political parties like the Congress and the BJP for their own interests.
We at Bureaucracy Today firmly believe that a bureaucracy must be free from political interference to function effectively. BT salutes the efforts of IAS officers like Sanjay Bhoosreddy who have refused to be dominated by such blatant display of political power and taken up Durga’s cause. It is high-time Civil Services officers all over the country protested against such injustice.
