He mentioned that a person who graduates from the AACSB accredited college has a great opportunity of getting a good job. If a B – School gets accredited it puts you among the top 5 percentage of the colleges globally.
A B – School should have its mission statement in line with its activities. Mr. Perry mentioned the following as the characteristics of a good B – School.
Mr. Perry stressed upon the need of having a good set of faculties who would guide the students and facilitate their process of study. Good academicians would be able to pass on their knowledge to their next generation through their teaching and lecture. Students play a key role in the formation of a good B-School. Their urge to learn and ability to articulate things will change the position of the university. Society and business community teaches the core values and ethics to be followed in a business environment. Constant technological developments and innovation will lead to updated education and learning process. These were the key points mentioned by Mr. Perry.
He has served in key positions of various universities and domains. The domains are economics, law and business. He believes in Amrita’s real mission and emphasizes that theory and practice should go hand in hand.
