Aima to test B-school grads for employability

Tags: Aima, B-school, News
The All India Management Association (Aima), which conducts MAT, is now coming up with a new employability ranking for fresh B-school graduates.

“Management Aptitude Skill Test (MAST) promises to be a uniform emplo­yability benchmark,” Sanjiv Goe­nka, president, Aima, said. MAST will be an online test, Goenka said and added that the first MAST will be conducted on February 20, 2011. “The idea is to give aspiring managers and fresh management graduates a level playing field. It is not always possible for companies to reach out to all the IIMs and other B-schools while hiring. In the process, talented students from other IIMs like IIM-Shillong or lesser known B-schools are left out. Once we have a Crisil-like rating agency it will be a win-win for students as well as companies,” Roopen Roy, managing director, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India and a board member of Aima, said.

Rekha Sethi, director general, Aima, said, “There has been overwhelming response from both companies and B-schools. We are looking at 200 corporate endorsements and have already got 100 so far.”
