Only one in five MBAs employable: Survey

Minister says only 25% grads are employable
You know whats common in the above headlines carried by media?
They all are statistics and survey results, and the funny thing about statistics is -
Statistics are like a bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.
Sensationalism sells. Controversy sells and these stories sold. That's all that there is to it. The sample size of the survey seems skewed as it has considered only the tier-2 b-schools ignoring the top ones.
The sample size per city has been a measly average of 80 students per city and I do not think the day zero placed students will be a part of this sample size. For all you know, the students participating in this survey were only those who couldnt get placed through their respective colleges.
Whenever there is a survey, I get reminded of the gentlemen who came up with the bikini quote and do my own due deligence.
I'm certain students who have maximized their learning, stretched themselves and their abilities and given in their best to absorb from the environment will get their dream profiles and make their place in the world.
Happy B-schooling. Cheers !
