Management studies originated in India: Joshi

NEW DELHI: Claims about India being the crucible of the most ancient
civilisation, the originator of mathematics, rockets and missiles are passe.
To the long list of ideas and inventions claimed to have originated here,
the latest is the concept of management education.
HRD minister M M Joshi said on Wednesday that management education
originated here. He strongly refuted the view that it was a concept from
the West that came to India. It was the other way round, he said at the PHD
Chamber of Commerce and Industry here.
Joshi discarded the Western concept, saying it was restricted to corporate
management alone with profit as the motive. He did not contrast it with the
Indian concept, but said the latter ought to cover the entire spectrum of
life and society with ethical values.
''Value education and value management would alone lead to a value
society,'' he told a conference on ''Indian Management Education: Vision
He asked the captains of industry who were following alien concepts to
ponder on why they had not yielded the desired results. Company managements
and management institutes in India must keep in touch with ground realities.
It was time they realised that ''striving for excellence and social good''
should be the motive in the Indian management system.

election, is happy with just a footnote on its role.
