Indian business schools have been adjusting to and incorporating the digital economy into their curriculum. Nonetheless, there is still potential for advancement and progress to stay up with the ever-changing digital scene.
Indian business schools have begun to offer digital marketing, e-commerce, and analytics courses
Several Indian business schools have begun to offer digital marketing, e-commerce, and analytics courses. They have also launched new programmes like data analytics, digital transformation, and entrepreneurship, which aim to provide students with the skills needed to flourish in the digital economy.
Business schools are incorporating technology
Furthermore, business schools are progressively incorporating technology to improve the learning experience. For example, they use online platforms, interactive tools, and simulations to assist students in building their abilities by simulating real-world events.
Is there a need for improvement in Indian business schools?
Yet, there is still a need for improvement in Indian business schools’ concentration on the digital economy. This involves a greater emphasis on new technologies like AI, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT). It also entails supporting student invention and creativity, entrepreneurship, and start-up culture. While Indian business schools are making headway in educating students about the digital economy, more investment, creativity, and collaboration between academia and industry are required to stay up with the rapidly changing digital world.
Business schools must look beyond the traditional realms of teaching
Business schools must look beyond the traditional realms of teaching and learning to build and strengthen their students’ management, leadership, and entrepreneurial abilities (in a primarily digital economy).
Apart from sophisticated technology training, management students will benefit significantly from targeted exposure to environmental studies, humanities and design thinking, public policy, social sciences, and visual and performing arts. Students can do critical analysis and complicated problem-solving and generate unique ideas if they can observe and approach real-life challenges from diverse viewpoints.
Can we successfully integrate the forces of being, cognition, flow, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, engaging, monitoring, questioning, and starting in business schools? Let us strive for such a future and contribute to obtaining an equally developed economic status by 2047.
