“Being student Centric is the key”
The top management desires that the institute should be filled with quality students, or, at least, there should be more than breakeven number of students. The parents desire that the institute should provide quality education and help students as and when required. They also expect it to take care of students’ holistic development and be a “parent” to them.
The government and the statutory authorities desire that all the rules and regulations are met by institutes, such as the number of computers, faculty, classrooms, and so on.
The students desire that the faculty provide them “something more” than what is available in the books, websites and so on. Many of the students are not interested in attending classes because they feel that all the information provided by the faculty is available on the Internet. There is no real value addition. Additionally, as far as the students are concerned, good job opportunities and placements are their priority.
Discussions with several industry and corporate personnel indicate that while interviewing students, corporate recruiters look at the following characteristics in students:
Fundamental knowledge of the subject (approximately 20 per cent weightage)
Application knowledge of the subject (approximately 40 per cent weightage)
Holistic development of the student (approximately 40 per cent weightage)
