Introduction

The growth of Indian economy over the last 15 years has been tremendous. The opening up of Indian economy has led to free inflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) along with modern cutting edge technology, which has increased the importance of private sector in Indian economy considerably. Previously, the Indian market was ruled by the government enterprises but the scene in Indian market changed as soon as the markets were opened for investments in 1991. This saw the rise of the Indian private sector companies in Banking, Retail, Telecommunication, Automobiles, Insurance, Manufacturing etc. which prioritized customer’s need and speedy service through skilled manpower.

Working in a large, modern, international organization, a medium sized company or even a small start-up firm requires a range of business capabilities. The managerial activities at small enterprises are a responsibility of owners while in multinational companies and large scale organizations, managerial responsibility is given to a hierarchy of skilled and certified professionals. The most valuable employees are those who have not only a sound knowledge and understanding of the various parts of a business, but those who are quick learners and team players with leadership potential. Business activities are multifaceted and thus call for professionally qualified experts in business administration.

Management Education for the future

Future Organizations will become more flexible and transparent, with a focus on project-based relationships and business sustainability. Leadership will become more horizontal and shared as increased social and external collaborations breakdown the traditional hierarchical model. Management of the future will essentially be a management of change. There is a gradual shift from the long cherished traditional practices to the ones which are modern and unconventional. Technology, automation and research are some of the other words that drive the processes of the 21st century conglomerates. This dynamic, ever-changing and technology driven world of business, thus, demands of the professionals not just sound conceptual knowledge but also an attitude that enables easy adaptation to the changing environment. These are professionals who would be guided in future not by their hunches but by the facts derived from careful analysis of data thus making research the base for sound decision making. A strategic merger of research, technology and strategy is what will ultimately define the conglomerate of tomorrow.
