Study on rapid fall in demand for MBA courses

The State government will soon conduct a survey to ascertain the reasons for the dwindling number of applicants for MBA courses in the recent years.

The survey, set to begin in January, will be undertaken by the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). Speaking to Deccan Herald, H Maheshappa, vice-chancellor of VTU, said that a query has already been sent to higher education officials, asking why MBA seats were falling vacant in Hubballi. He added that the situation not only prevailed in Hubballi, but throughout the State.

“We will start working on the survey from the first or second week of January. Once the report is submitted, the government will have to take a call on what to do,” Maheshapppa added.

Out of around 24,000 MBA seats in around 230 colleges, less than half of the seats were filled in the last two years.  The same situation, however, prevails throughout the country with a number of MBA colleges being shut in the last five years, according to All India Council for Technical Education.
