The city of Calcutta (renamed to Kolkata in 2001) is no longer indentified by its destitution or the inspiring work of Mother Teresa – it has a rich cultural heritage which is waiting to be experienced.  As the demand for Kolkata's human resources increased in domestic and international markets, the city has ensured that it delivers the best professional education to its citizens. Business management studies have been one area where Kolkata has shown its true mettle!

A recent study by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) showed that Kolkata creates 4.19% of all jobs in India. This analysis by ASSOCHAM also revealed that besides the National Capital Region (NCR), Kolkata has also emerged as one of the most prominent employment destinations in the country.

Falling back in time

Early days of education in Kolkata saw lessons being taught through vernacular languages – Bangla or Sanskrit. As British Imperialists started taking fancy on the city, the concept of western education was brought forward with a view to accelerate their cumulative interests. Though the concept of modern education in the city was welcomed with specific apprehensions, but situations significantly changed through constructive works done by brilliant scholars and reformists like Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar and Raja Ram Mohan Roy.
