India being the largest democracy with stable, mature, vibrant and exemplary democratic governance and institutions, boasts of quality B-Schools, which attract student community in large numbers every year. There are almost 10 million graduates in the country passing out annually. This number is set to rise in the future. However, our graduates are not 'industry ready' in terms of specialist skills. On the other hand, the industry is screaming for educated 'masses'. Even if we take all the students from all the B-schools put together in the country, there will be a shortage of skilled manpower and domain expertise at all levels. This book is blended with the perfect ingredients: the booming Indian Management Education, which offers tremendous business opportunities in the area of HR, Training and Development. It also aims at bridging the gap between corporate expectations from the young talent and meeting the needs of the latter, by providing growth prospects. About the Author Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) is the largest and oldest apex business organisation in India. It was established in 1927.
