Every year, winters turn Manali white, making it one of the most loved places in India for anyone with a liking for snowfall. Come December or around, and this town wakes up from its dreamy winter slumber to mornings that bring bouts of snow, not without some sunshine of course. As a ritual, the local folks here start the preparation beforehand, complete with stocks of firewood and angeethis. If you wish to explore this beautiful hill town in India in its wintery avatar, here is your guide of the best things to do in Manali on a winter day.

1. A coffee and some cookies at Dylan’s

Much to everyone’s delight, this cafe has stayed as wonderful as it was when it started. Dylan’s Toasted and Roasted will live up to all your expectations on a snowy day, especially with the staff taking care that you get nothing but the best, toasted beans from Coorg and Chikamagalur for your coffee. Their cookies are all-time favourites as well.

2. An evening at the Johnson’s Cafe

Another old-school place that lives up to its name, Johnson’s Cafe & Bar usually puts up live music sessions around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, or whenever it snows in winters to keep its customers happy. This place has a delightful ambiance, a great food menu (those pizzas), and some fine wine as well.

3. A drive to Naggar and beyond

There is nothing like driving in snow, as long as you have a local driver and your vehicle does not get stuck in it. While it does sound like an adventure, a local driver knows the terrain like you never would so hop in for a snow drive. Put on some good music, marvel at the glorious Naggar Castle, and then drive some more towards Jana Waterfall. Choose what you love more, this quaint village or the waterfall it has.

4. Some forest time by Hadimba’s abode

It would suffice to write that if you do not spend some afternoon hours in the forest behind the very famous Hadimba Temple, you would be missing the best of this place. A conserved area, this forest area is a mirage of quiet and green in the middle of a rather touristy stretch of Manali. It looks nothing short from a prelude in the Bavarian forests when it snows; do not miss.

5. Fresh trout and more at Cafe 1947; pizzas at Il Forno

Cafe 1947 in Manali is worth all the hype that it attracts. While its perfect settings by Manalsu river is a definite win, almost everything on their menu is worth digging into it. To make the choices simpler for you, we recommend trout dishes here. On the other side of the river, Il Forno awaits those in ardent love with Italian food. One of the quaintest, no-noise places to eat in Manali, a hearty, good Italian meal is a must here.

Where is the MBA headed to in 2019?

What is new in 2019 is that there is renewed focus on the MBA degree’s relevance to society and whether it has become out of sync with current industry practices.

Business school predictions for the last two years have already sung paeans to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and virtual reality in modern classrooms and the disruptions they bring to education. 2019 has already recognized those trends and given them their due pedestal.

What is new in 2019 is that there is renewed focus on the MBA degree’s relevance to society and whether it has become out of sync with current industry practices.

Pursuing an MBA requires considerable personal and financial commitment. One of the most obvious questions that today’s generation asks a B-school is that when college-dropouts can go on to become billionaires why should one need an MBA?

A recent employer survey in the US reveals that employers search for five key skills in their target managerial personnel – ability to work with a variety of different people, ability to build, sustain and expand networks of people, ability to solve complex problems, ability to understand the impact of digitalization on business and the ability to prioritize and deliver time-bound results.

As can be seen, these are typical soft skills which rarely form part of business curricula and are difficult to teach in classroom environments or even simulations.

Some of the expectations around an MBA are patently unreasonable. For example, a number of students have been led to believe that an MBA is a golden ticket to a high-paying job, which it isn’t. The fact remains that your career will depend on the body of work you are able to present to a prospective employer. Employers are looking to hire people with not only the relevant skills and competencies when they hire an MBA but also one who has demonstrated success in management through relevant experience. And only a handful of business schools will give you realworld laboratories to practice and hone skills ancillary to your core competencies.

Given below are the top trends that MBA programs will be looking to deliver in 2019.

New disciplines to take centerstage

Entrepreneurship, analytics and design-thinking are predicted to be the 3 top areas in which demand will increase manifold this year. Digital media and luxury management are other emerging areas where specialization is a key requirement for entry.

As per, a quality control manager’s salary ranges between Rs. 549,320 to Rs. 877,720. A pharmaproduct manager earns from Rs. 447,620 to Rs. 1,051,550 and that for a business analyst, between Rs. 502,830 to Rs. 945,630.

Business schools will be more responsive to society

Social upheavals in today’s environment continue to question established institutions and their relevance to social realities.

Business leaders too, being an inherent part of the community, will be pressed to become more responsive and responsible to needs such as environmental regulation, CSR and other collaborations.

Industries ranging from pharmaceuticals and energy to FMCG and fashion, all are being pressed to prove their involvement and contribution to the society at large. Adequate training and preparation will be called for those roles.

Increasing relevance through collaborations

In addition to continued Globalisation on one side with ease of mobility and inter-connectedness of joint academic and student exchanges worldwide, while on the other side,some countries have started to look inwards towards nationalisation. This has led to changing trading relations, resulting in redesigning operations and strategies for many businesses. MBA programmes, therefore, will be required to respond to such needs, where understanding the governments and the industry will be imperative.

Despite the presence of technologies such as AI and Digital Twinning, personal interactions will continue to trump digital interactions as the things that make a business relationship sustainable are still developed over lunch or face-to-face cues. Negotiations and transactions will have the best chance of success over technically enhanced face-to-face interactions.

Embedding tech in the classroom

Apart from these new trends, classrooms are already being supplemented by digital lectures, notes, AI-enhanced assessments that personalize the learning pace according to the comprehension capacities of individual students, VR-powered simulations model what would happen if decisions were to be implemented. Automation, Robotisation and Blockchain skills are invaluable to the evolution of Industry 4.0 and those possessing such skills will be at a distinct advantage.

The MBA degree has not lost relevance despite its being overused and non-uniform standard of education in India. The skills and capabilities the MBA offers to society and business are still generating great impact and will continue to do so in the coming future.
