HYDERABAD: Rama Krishna Yelamanchili, professor of finance at ICFAI University, Hyderabad has developed an integrated approach for online teaching and learning to prepare management graduates for jobs.
In any given year around 5,00,000 students study for an MBA in India. In Telugu states, nearly 1,16,000 students are currently studying for an MBA.
From total enrolled students, only 50 percent are able to get jobs. Rama Krishna said that a search in the Naukri job portal about 10 popular management-related jobs result in more than 85,000 posts by hundreds of companies.
He adds, “The search clearly indicates that there are thousands of job openings for skilled management graduates. What is required is students learn the job skills that companies are expecting.”
To help management graduates across the country, Rama Krishna has created a YouTube channel (varsity) and uploads simple videos ranging between two and 15 minutes.
These videos cover business management, the application of concepts, and the use of software applications to solve complex calculations.
Students can watch these videos anytime on their mobiles, laptops, computers, or internet-connected televisions.
