The proliferation of management educational institutions have helped young aspirants to access the best of academic resources and find good managerial positions very early in their careers.
These young managers would have many challenges staring in their face in the wake of increasing competition, resources crunch and economic crisis.
The best way to face these challenges is to prepare the MBA students as multi-skilled knowledge workers who make relentless efforts in upholding world-class industry standards wherever they work.
Dwelling at length on such ideas, the students of business administration of the Koneru Lakshmaiah University (KLU) assert that age is not proving to be a hurdle for young people to relish success at an early stage. If somebody proves his or her talent, the industry and the corporate world is ready to reward them with suitable and highly responsible positions.
The MBA final and first year students of KLU took part in a Group Discussion organised and moderated by The Hindu Education Plus at The Hindu Office. This is organised as part of the many initiatives to create newer opportunities for young people to sharpen their presentation skills.
The young participants observed that an MBA student coming out of established institutions is more or less ready to take up any assignment in the industry and this has come as a big advantage for them to deliver results instantly. With a thorough knowledge of technical, conceptual and problem-solving skills, these young managers are proving their talent to the world.
One student said that the young manager would show immediate enthusiasm in coming out with fresh ideas and there would be a new energy all around.
Though it would not be a strict rule for one to become a successful young manager, the theoretical knowledge a student would get in an academic institution would do a world of difference in most cases, he said. The student participants felt that the young managers should be ever vigilant against making any mistake in crisis situations like the current economic meltdown.
They would have to make difficult choices in view of problems like cash crunch, pay cuts, retrenchment, lay-offs and so on. With boldness and imagination, the young people should tide over these crises and follow role models in such situations for deriving the best kind of advice and solace.
