Just read in the economictimes, an article that Is MBA dying. Thought of discussing this here where we have the actual target audience. Guys, what are your views on this....

MBA education also rides as per the market conditions. In 2008 when the market was at the peak there were 2.4 lac exam takers for CAT, but as per CAT 2011, the number dropped to 1.85 lac. We can say the craze for MBA education has decreased.

another reason could be the mushrooming of many business schools. Many institutes have increased the intake, there are 6 new IIMs which have been opened. Hence the competition to for that coveted seat has reduced.

During the boom time may b schools mushroomed and many of them increased their intakes. But as the market came down, all these bschools which took advantage of boom period fell miserably. There is still competition to get into good bschools but there are hardly any takers for low ranked bshools.

There is huge competition to get into good bschools but yes the hype surrounding MBA has come down after the meltdown. If you are doing MBA from not so recognized bschool then it not well recognized in the professional world

according to me, MBA is not losing any value. If you do it from the good college, then there is always value addition and it has some weight in the professional world...

kartik has rightly pointed that Institute name is very important before you decide to pursue MBA. I have seen many people doing MBA from unknown colleges and then suffering. These types colleges will charge you loads of money but giving nothing in turn...

May be in the current market condition MBA is losing some value but in the long run it it will always remain beneficial.

have been reading newspaper...who says MBA is losing value. Looking at the salaries offered to students at premeir schools nobody can say MBA is losing value. To put it aptly, only the degree will not fetch you good job, you need to have good knowledge that is offered only by good b schools...
