The MBA degree is now becoming less popular that once was in huge demand. Lack of employment opportunity and global slowdown can be the reason for this issue that result in left over MBA seats in huge number
Gulab Thakre, Joint director of Technical Education provided figures for the Nagpur region showing spread out the trend of students' evading interest in selecting courses of local colleges. Among 5,100 seats under MBA courses in 56 colleges of Nagpur region, 3,33o seats remained unoccupied this year, only 1,770 have been filled after completion of the admission process. In other words it can be said that 65% seats remained vacant.
Surprisingly, some new colleges acquired better response with a greater part of their seats filled up. That included Green Heaven Institute, Kamla Nehru Mahavidyalya, NITGraduate School, Tulsiramji Gaikwad-Patil College and JD College of Engineering, among others.
However, according to DTE sources that several complaints have been registered regarding the irregularities by colleges which were with application receipt centres (ARCs) of the centralized admissions. They apparently took passwords from the candidates and change the college priorities to place their name on the top.
However, some most renowned colleges faced downfall in attracting the students that including Dr Ambedkar, Wanjari, Ramdeobaba, Dr Panjabrao Deshmukh, Tirpude, CP and Berar, Priyadarshini, GS College, CIBMRD, Guru Nanak, SB Jain, Kavi Kulguru (Ramtek), Shantiniketan, Sardar Patel (Gondia), and Nabira (Katol).
Despite of less teachers and less operative infrastructure, DTE has permitted admission to various colleges offering MBA courses that are Dr Arun Motghare College of Management at Bhandara and Kirsan Mission's Institute of Management at Gondia.
Reasons for the lack of interest
- Failure of colleges to invite companies for campus recruitment
- Lack of good infrastructure and faculty
