These future industry managers prefer work profile combined with the growth opportunities, resisting the tempting salary offers.
Surprisingly, a meager 4 per cent of these students have opted for fat salary packets over a good job profile. Factors like desire for a higher standard of living, family expectations and responsibilities, compulsion to pay hefty amount of education loans, to save for investment in entrepreneurship, conventionally draw MBA graduates toward high paying jobs. But, things seem to have changed with preferences changing for the future growth than the present rewards, the survey indicated.
