B-schools not doing enough to bridge skills gap

Most HR professionals opine that B-schools are not addressing the skills required at work place and not doing enough to address the skills gap facing organizations, a survey said. As per the survey about one third of the respondents felt that business schools are actually addressing the skills required at the workforce. Here it makes a very strong case for re-imagining management education itself.
The survey was conducted across its campuses in Dubai, Singapore, Sydney and India among professionals from various sectors, including HR executives in FMCG, pharmaceuticals, banking and financial services and hospitality sectors, among others. The top skills desirable are including managing complexity, innovative thinking, critical thinking and problem solving, effective communication skills, leadership and interpersonal skills, cultural sensitivity and diversity, decision making and problem solving, design thinking and dealing with ambiguity.
