A little over 20 lakh candidates had appeared for the TET exam on October 11 last year for recruitment of around 30,000 vacancies for primary teachers in West Bengal.

The results of the examination could not be published owing to litigations by some candidates who challenged certain provisions of which one was the inclusion of non-trained candidates for teaching jobs.

Reasons why this course is the need of the hour

(Representational image)

Every manager or team leader  is expected to know the nitty-gritties of the job, including all technical, marketing and other aspects to efficiently manage his or her team. The need for managers to know the details of the jobs they assign their team has given rise to Masters in Business Administration (MBA) programmes in Information Technology (IT) and Systems Management.

If we look at the global MBA scenario, IT-related opportunities make up almost as much as 13 per cent of business administrative jobs. This figure was achieved after the industry witnessed a growth of eight per cent in 2014. The findings are part of a collaborative study between QS Intelligence Unit and (2014-15 report), involving more than 5,500 MBA employers.

What is an MBA in IT or Systems Management specialisation about?

An MBA in IT or Systems Management can make one eligible in handling administrative problems and tasks related to information technology. The scope of this arena is huge given the demand in this field created by the growing IT industry.

“A field like Systems Management is both technical and managerial in nature. ‘Business analysts’ in the IT industry are considered to be experts in a number of technical support areas. These include database techniques, programming languages, communication systems, image processing, security systems etc,” Premlesh Machama, Managing Director, Career Builder, says, adding, “However, these experts do not generally possess the comprehensive experience to function in a high-level business/information arena.”


What are the advantages of this qualification?

According to Machama, a management degree in this stream can make one eligible in handling administrative problems and tasks related to information technology. “An MBA in IT/system management can help a candidate to develop managerial and administrative qualities as well as gain sound understanding of business concepts which is a crucial requirement for project management positions in software development activities,” he says.

Throwing light on industry practises during recruitment drives, hiring and placement season, Harmeet Kaur, Senior Talent Acquisition partner at 3Pillar Global says, “The IT services industry is actively seeking out candidates who are not only technically strong but also can also constantly challenge themselves in terms of problem solving which is very important these days.”

Elaborating further on the importance of this qualification, Kaur says, “Candidates who are equipped with an MBA in IT and Systems management have an added advantage of getting a job in an IT MNC as they have knowledge of technology as well as a sound understanding of global business aspects. An MBA degree helps candidates become well-trained in management aspects helping them grow into successful IT managers.”

Who apply most for this course?

“This course is typically pursued by students with computer or software engineering backgrounds. In due course of time, as engineers progress in their careers, an MBA in IT aids them in climbing up the ladder to managerial designations,” says Anil Sachdev, Founder and CEO, School of Inspired Leadership (SOIL), a business school.

While Kaur feels that candidates with a degree of BCA, engineering and B Sc (IT) would be preferred for admissions in this course, she says that they need to possess good analytical skills and an unending quest for knowledge as well.

Machama notes that the trend of MBA in IT/System Management is catching up in India. “One can usually see candidates with mixed qualification backgrounds in this course. Since the scope of MBA and engineering is vast in the corporate world, both freshers and candidates who have had two-three years of work experience opt for this course,” he says.

What is the pay scale after MBA in IT/Systems Management?

Machama feels that the pay scale for this job depends upon the experience of a candidate. “For freshers, the basic salary starts from 7-8 lakh per annum and for experienced candidates, it can go upto 20-25 lakh per annum,” he says.

However, Kaur is of the opinion that salaries for information systems managers are competitive and are among the best across industries, given that this field brings together two sought-after skill sets.

“Salary packages largely depend upon the size of the organisation that you work for and the experience. Packages for freshers from top business schools are also much higher as compared to normal MBA’s,” Kaur says.

What is the scope of employment after this course?

Apart from the prospect of a better emolument, such a qualification can help you learn the nuances of website management, e-commerce development, decision support systems, software product development, information security, knowledge management systems and business analysis, inventory control systems and overall IT management systems.

If you are looking for a position as a systems analyst, database manager, software/applications developer, network administrator, project lead or information technology consultant, you need to have an MBA in IT or Systems Management specialisation.

“The scope is vast for candidates who have opted for this stream,” says Machama, adding that an MBA-IT graduate can seek management roles in business/IT alignment, IT governance, IT financial management, IT service management as well as Sourcing.”

Some of the institutes in India offering an MBA in IT or Systems Management are:

Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) – all campus
Management Development Institute (MDI), Gurgaon
Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Pune
Sikkim Manipal University


What do you need for this course:

First and foremost, you would need exceptional analytical skills as well as a sound knowledge of technical jargon and the ability to interpret and communicate it in clear managerial terms. That you need to have an interest in information technologies goes without saying.

A bachelor’s qualification in computer applications or information technology would be considered ideal but is not necessary. You will be required to integrate business functions with IT and a sense of creativity and innovativeness will be expected of you.

Lastly, you must always be willing to learn as well as keep yourself updated on the latest developments in the IT sector as technology is forever evolving at a very fast rate.

How should non-engineering students prepare for the exam

CAT, CAT 2016, CAT Tips, MBA entrance, IIM, mba entrance exam, MBA entrance tips, CAT exam tips, CAT 2016 how to crack, common admission test, masters of business administration, indian institute of management, education news, indian express

How should non-engineers prepare for the Common Admission Test (CAT)? It is a genuine query of roughly 40 per cent of the candidates who belong to non-engineering backgrounds.

In general, there is no difference in the strategy and on the focus area between engineering and non-engineering students. There is a high number of non-engineering students every year who manage to crack CAT, in spite of not being from an engineering/statistics/maths/mathematical science background. Thus, such preconceived notions are completely absurd.

To succeed, kill such wrong notions first. How a student performs in the exam like CAT has less to do with his/her background and more to do with his/her perseverance and being open to fresh ideas.

Quantitative Aptitude (QA):

One should draw a boundary between QA and Maths. CAT demands only basic mathematical skills that we have learnt till class 10. CAT does not focus on theoretical ideas but application of basic concepts. This essentially means that your knowledge of basic arithmetic and proportionality tools, numbers, time-speed distance, elementary combinatorics, algebra and geometry is more than enough to help you crack the test.

Most of the problems present a level ground for everyone so there isn’t much of an advantage that engineers or other ‘maths people’ have. Most students get carried away and end up focussing on ‘glamorous’ concepts while neglecting simpler ones.


Basic mathematical skill is just one dimension of the QA section and the other dimensions are more important. These are: The ability to perform in a pressure situation, observational skills, decision making, adaptability/flexibility and finally, an ability to comprehend the questions.

Solving a CAT quant problem is a step wise process and the basic algorithm is as follows –

Step-I: Comprehension of question

Step-II: Interpretation, that is, what is given and what is required etc

Step-III: Problem solving (If required)

Before moving to step III, however, one should explore all the possibilities of answer option elimination through various approaches such as observation or through finding out the range of guesstimate values after analysing the extreme cases. To inculcate the above set of skills, one needs to practice hard.

Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation (LR/DI):

DI and LR are less knowledge-oriented and more skill-oriented. These areas involve fewer concepts and require regular practice. Practicing under time pressure is important. Whether you are an engineer or a non-engineer, this section is an equalizer in the true sense.

To excel in DI one should be conversant with the application of some of the most repeated tools related to percentages, proportionality tool, averages and alligations. Students should be clear with “how interpretation is different from calculations” and “how one can avoid unnecessary calculations in DI”.

In calculation-based DI questions, if you can calculate mentally it will be an advantage. Judicious use of on-screen calculator also saves precious time.


In short, the adage, practice makes one perfect is absolutely true for DI. Apart from this comprehension ability, logical reasoning and application of maxima-minima concepts is required more in reasoning based DI.

To deal with LR puzzles based upon linear arrangements, circular arrangements, distributions, order & sequencing, selections or binary logic, an aspirant is required to achieve the basic skill set though rigorous practice.

The three basic skill sets are comprehension, interpretation and case analysis which are essentially required to crack any puzzle. After achieving the basic skill sets of puzzles some topic based on LR such as cubes, games, venn diagram, tournaments etc are also required in this section.


Non-engineering students need to focus more upon the evaluating factors in CAT, that is, optimization of speed and accuracy. Prepare for the exam by dividing your time equally for VA, LRDI and Quant sections.

Wish you all the best!


BCI gives DU one year time for complying with its conditions

Image result for BCI gives DU one year time for complying with its conditionsNew Delhi: Putting an end to the tussle between Delhi University and Bar Council of India(BCI) over reduction of seats in law courses, the legal education regulator announced today that the decision will be implemented from next academic session.

“In the interest of the students, the standing committee has decided that we will give DU a one-time relaxation for the academic year 2016-2017,” BCI chairman Manan Kumar Mishrasaid.

The Dean of Law Faculty at Delhi University, SC Raina gave an undertaking stating that the conditions imposed by the BCI would be complied with from the next academic year.

The BCI had asked DU to shutdown colleges offering law courses in evening shifts. The recommendation has been made after a committee of BCI, the apex regulatory body for legal education and legal profession in the country, submitted an adverse report about infrastructure and quality of education imparted at the centres of DU’s law faculty.

Around 800 students are at present enrolled in DU evening colleges offering law.

Following protests from students and aspirants, BCI has also agreed to allow for evening classes for existing second and third-year students.

The decisions were taken today by the Standing Committee of the Bar Council.

In an unprecedented move, BCI had in 2014 decided to derecognise DU’s law course after it failed to seek timely extension of the affiliation of its three centres, namely Campus Law Centre, Law Centre-I and Law Centre-II.

However, it was granted a provisional extension of affiliation for the 2014-15 session after DU had proposed to shift to a new building which it claimed “had adequate space” for the faculty to run properly.

However, after a fresh inspection by a BCI panel, the council had noted that besides fresh violations, the illegalities earlier highlighted remain unattended.

Following this, the BCI issued it a show-cause notice to explain the “illegalities” in its functioning including more than permissible student strength, lack of infrastructure and faculty.
