Why B schools need the Tech Edge

Read this interesting article( by Sudipta K Sen ,CEO and MD of SAS Institute (India) where he suggests that a basic knowledge of technology will be helpful to new recruits looking to make their way in this dynamic and competitive marketplace.

"The IT industry itself is a fast-evolving one, with newer concepts and technologies being introduced regularly and older technologies becoming rapidly obsolete. B-schools need to train students in all these aspects of business.

The ability to harness the capabilities of business intelligence and other enterprise applications lies in practical knowledge of these technologies.

There is no substitute for experience, but if it is made available as anecdotal teachings, it will prepare the students to face the ground realities of the corporate world. It is, however, important for students to be groomed to handle technology as well as the change management techniques that go with technology adoption and implementation."
