Dr Jireh Hooi Inn Seow (Assistant Professor, SP Jain School of Global Management) talks about why going to a physical college is still a good idea in times of online learning. He shared his insights in an article published in The Hindu, a leading news portal.
In the article, he writes, “While good ideas are vital to start-ups, the team behind the ideas are equally, if not more, important. Many start-up investors value people more than ideas because a company with the right people brings about effective leadership, teamwork, creativity, abilities and skills, work experience, and character, all of which are needed to pivot a start-up in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.”
Dr Seow, thus highlights that institutions of higher learning are the best when it comes to meeting the right people. He explains, “What you are really paying for when you attend a B-school is not just your degree or knowledge and skills. You are paying for the best environment to learn about your future teammates and business partners. College education for future entrepreneurs is more about building a start-up team of trusted individuals with whom they have socialised and worked with for four years.”
