However, India struggles to produce the greatest academicians and professionals pertaining to its old school teaching methodologies that are almost extinct from the modern educational practices. Though having its roots sowed 35 years ago, Regional College of Management, believes that management education is more of a team building/development program that should be run by professionals. Hence the college provides a global platform to its student by collaborating with faculties across foreign universities and directors &managers from MNCs holding decades of industry experience to impart deep corporate interaction and lucrative job opportunities through its network of over 300 companies where its students are placed. “At RCM, Bangalore, students are encouraged to focus on practical studies rather than theory to instill managerial qualities which adds to our fineness teaching methodologies,” adds S.R.
