Why practical learning is essential for students graduating in Business Administration?

These resources include men, material, market, money and methods. All this are very practical resources which need industry centric training for gaining expertise. B schools in Kolkata are focused on making the students learn the practical aspects of managing a Business and Organization and overall their own personality and career. Management is the most practical field of learning where an individual gets ample opportunity to reorient themselves in terms of character, personality and the overall orientation of the mind. Practical learning is also essential because the entire array of Management practices is based on certain case studies pertaining to both service and manufacturing sectors. In both these sectors of functional economy, one needs to grasp the skills of planning, controlling, coordination, supervision, scheduling and execution. Managerial dynamics involves inferential method of decision making where one needs to have practical exposure in applied aspects of Commerce, Trade, Industry and most importantly the overall Economy. The interface of Public systems and technology is also essential for a Management student to understand. This is because today no category of Business and Organizational Machinery can run without proper support from the Public systems and the Technical infrastructure. Apart from all these factors, the technique of effective communication and combating the challenges of work machinery in a Business, Office and Organization is an art which can be learnt only through Industry centric education.
