Given this scenario, educational institutions have a transformational role to play, especially business schools. For a long time, business schools were
churning out business leaders for corporate roles( barring a few). This is all the more evident among top Indian B schools. American colleges, fairly
successfully, moulded young minds for a variety of social, developmental and political roles.
If fortune lies at the bottom of the pyramid( coined by the late CK prahlad), aspirants to top B schools, Harvard, Stanford, Kellog, aspirants to these
prestigious institutes should better build their profile around one of the developmental aspects of interest by participating in
- sustainable livelihood projects
- inclusive education
- improving access for the common man
- localized solutions to community problems
- participative and collaborative programs of govt and NGOs.
