Candidates throng MBA fair

Kochi: Prominent universities and colleges which offer management courses in India and abroad have gathered under one roof at the two-day MBA Education Fair that began at Hotel Abad Plaza, M.G. Road, on Saturday.

The event was inaugurated by the president of the Kerala Management Association S. Jayathilakan. Apart from management courses, the 51 stalls at the venue offer related streams too. Four foreign institutions – the University of Coventry in the U.K., the University of Wollongong in Dubai, the London School of Commerce and the James Cook University in Singapore are participating in the event. Over a dozen overseas consultants too are participating.
The fair has been organised by ISE Event Management Pvt. Ltd, with The Hindu-Education Plus as the media partner. With MBA aspirants choosing specialised fields as varied as finance, marketing, media, retail management, hospitality and tourism, petroleum, human resource, health care, logistics, shipping, technology and aviation, many institutions are catering to the demand in these sectors where management graduates have job opportunities.

Till Saturday evening, there were around 800 registrations at the fair. The seriousness shown by the aspirants who checked out the stalls was evident from the fact that many of them were accompanied by their parents. The courses offered by universities in Australia did not have as many takers as in previous fairs, because of the frequent attacks on Indian students in that country.

Two seminars too were held alongside the event on the first day, on the topics ‘Are you fit to do an MBA’ and ‘Study MBA abroad’. The Coordinator (International Marketing) of the University of Wollongong, Saleem Sayed Mohammed Bava said that students from around 100 nationalities pursue higher studies at the university’s campus in Dubai Knowledge City. Former Principal of Maharaja’s College, Ernakulam, and the Associate Director of IMTP Consultancy Services, Prof. Naseem Yacoob said that universities in Singapore have gained from Indian students not preferring Australia.
