Shaping Business Leaders
What B-Schools Don't Do
Asha Bhandarker - Distinguished Professor of Org Behaviour, IMI-Delhi, International Management Institute, New Delhi, India
Shaping Business Leaders: What B–Schools Don't Do examines the widespread impression that young professionals graduating from India's business schools are constantly job hopping, focus more on their own gains and lack entrepreneurship skills. Bhandarker reiterates that India's top B-schools have to traverse miles to achieve their self-proclaimed motto of identifying and training future business leaders. They must re-examine their educational paradigm, course structure and pedagogy, and realign the competencies and disposition of their faculty.

Conclusions, implications and the new directions
The focal point of the book is business leadership and management education. It dissects the management education in the country with clinical precision and offers excellent suggestions to groom potential business leaders… It is authentic because the concepts are explained, analyzed and interpreted in detail…The references and the literature survey enlisted in the book is very extensive. Another important aspect of the book is that nowhere does it appeal to be technical. It should appeal to everyone besides the management teachers, corporate executives and management alumni….It really awakens us to the reality that there is an indispensable need to overhaul the management education in the country. It is very much the need of the hour in these days of globalization.

This small, potent book is backed by a sound conceptual framework with up-to-date bibliographical references that will be helpful even to academics spearheading into leadership issues. Thoughtful practitioners, like human resource professionals and industry leaders, can skip much of the conceptual and methodological work and still make the best of the powerful insights and information provided in this book. But there is not one concerned business school leader, whether in India or elsewhere, who can do without reading this book.
