Management as a career
The need for management and good managers is bound to increase in the years to come whether it be a developed or an under-developed economy, a small scale or a large scale organisation, a profit making or a non-profit making body, peace or war. Resources are scarce, and efficient management of these scarce resources is the key to survival. Leadership is the crying need of the hour. Organisations need leaders who can take charge from the front. The problem of finding and developing men and women who ‘are to be the managers of tomorrow, and top managers of the day after,' shall assume new dimensions. Management has vast potential to offer and much would depend on how it is exploited. “More than ever before”, observes a senior academician, “there is an increasing realisation today that educated and trained managers are the critical resources for organisations as well as the fuel for economic growth of the country.
The far-reaching changes introduced in our country over the last few years have had a cascading effect on several aspects of our economy and national life. This vastly altered economic and social scenario has led to tremendous increase in the number of vacancies in the corporate world. A career in management is quite lucrative, if one really goes by what the media tells us!
Who can go for Management Courses? Traditionally, it is only after graduation that students enter the field of management.
