In the backdrop of the global slowdown, some business schools in the country are redesigning their syllabus to groom students to cope up with a withering employment market and help in rebuilding the economy.


"Our curriculum structure is built in a way that the students would be better equipped to face the ground realities of the market, thereby being of true value in rebuilding the economy," B K Murty, Dean International Academy of Management & Entrepreneurship (IAME) Bangalore, told PTI.

The institute claims to have adopted a syllabus conducive to the Indian environment instead of "blindly copying American system".

"India being the emerging economic powerhouse, adapting management principles known to the Indian scenario and to develop our own systems would be more effective in helping India to better cope with the recession as well as ensure growth," Dr Murty said.

Similarly, Goa's premier business school, Goa Institute of Management has also fine-tuned its syllabus in the wake of global downturn to increase the future managers resilience towards it.

The impact of recession on the managerial job market in India was discussed and taken into account while updating the syllabus this year, its director PFX D'Lima said.
