Research Aims

The aim of the research is to study the current status of Knowledge management system if at all exists in the B-schools and to identify the Knowledge Management components

Introduction The government’s aspirations for making India a leading international education centre in Asia has put a strong pressure on local universities to improve the quality of education they offer. This includes generating. acquiring. . storing. An effective Knowledge Management system requires each academician to practice appropriate management of knowledge in his or her teaching and learning process. and disseminating knowledge to the users of knowledge especially the students.

The Emerging need for applying Knowledge Management •Lack of research •Lack of top management institutional support •Lack of Research culture •Lack of Credibility and quality in research •Lack of industrial support •Lack of resources (Faculty/Research Staff) •Lack of Globalization in research endeavour •Lack of research on Management Courses curriculum .


Approaches of Knowledge Management  Knowledge Generation  Knowledge Storing & Processing Knowledge Sharing  Marketing of Knowledge .

Knowledge Generation .

•Requires IT infrastructure and responsive communication system.Knowledge Storing & Processing Education Collaboration system •Primary system to develop a community of collaborative knowledge workers. •Primary purpose is to connect enterprise knowledge workers to promote an environment of innovation and continuous improvement. .

Knowledge Storing & Processing Knowledge Database •Internal System: (Intranet. group decision support system) Designed to provide easily accessible data and knowledge to the knowledge workers. Conferences. Workshops) to access knowledge workers to data and knowledge external to the enterprise . •External System: (Internet.

Research Design •Exploratory research design •In-depth Unstructured interviews •Sampling Unit: B-School Teachers •Sampling Size: 14 Teachers .

pedagogy etc. customer needs.Conclusions The B-Schools are being criticized on various aspects and they are increasingly facing a lot of challenges and opportunities in the global knowledge economy. The big issue is-how to compete in this changed scenario and take advantage of emerging opportunities. disseminate it continuously and effectively. . environmental changes. If the BSchools can continuously create new knowledge related to curriculum. and implement it properly than they can face the coming challenges of competitiveness in the global knowledge arena and play a big role in making India a global economic superpower.
