Management Education, for most, is the final frontier as far as the pursuit of education goes. It is that one last training arena beyond which one hopes to take on the corporate world and make sure that he/she comes out a winner.
Being a country of die-hard cricket fanatics, all of us know the importance of acclimatizing ourselves to the conditions before we play the real game. The same applies to every sport and to be very honest, to every aspect of our lives, and most definitely to Management Education. The keyword here is exposure which is the essence of such training, and Bangalore leads the way in providing that to students of management programs.
Like every other minute aspect of Vanguard Business School, we gave utmost consideration to our choice of location. After a lot of deliberation and careful criteria selection, Bangalore seemed to outdo any other city, in offering students the best exposure to the real corporate world.
Management Education over and beyond the curriculum is a primary function of how much industry exposure and practical learning one can obtain during the course. According to Mingle box’s survey entitled “Education hot spots in India survey 2010”, Bangalore is the best city in India for an MBA degree. Bangalore was also rated as the best city for pursuing an engineering degree[i].
They preferred Bangalore for these courses owing to the presence of many MNCs in search of talent, good institutions and interesting lifestyle.1
However, while one may or may not be willing to compromise on the amount of corporate exposure to be gained during the course, it is most certain, that every MBA student is looking for the best outcome at the end of 2 years of rigorous learning. A great head start in one's career and an adequate compensation package are definitely the benchmarks of reward for the efforts. According to surveys conducted, Bangalore ranks only second to Gurgaon and above Mumbai, in terms of highest salaries for MBAs, and coupled with its cost of living being lower than that in both Gurgaon and Mumbai, turns out to offer the best earning potential in the country[ii].
Another important deciding factor, which at times has been undervalued, is the weather of the city that plays a very important role in determining the productivity of students as also their cost of living. Bangalore is a dream come true, when it comes to weather and its moderate climate. The temperature is never extreme, which has direct living cost benefits for students in terms of the infrastructure required to cope with extreme weather conditions.
Bangalore is the IT/ITES capital of the country and is also the headquarters for many Indian and MNC corporate houses.It is also the leading city in terms of Indian and foreign investment.
All these factors truly make Bangalore the Numero Uno destination for pursuing a Management Program.
