Abstract

Graduates of Indian business schools are educated mostly in traditional pedagogical fashion. Against this backdrop, this paper examines Indian postgraduate business students’ perceptions of pedagogy and andragogy. The dataset comprises responses of a sample of 313 Indian postgraduate business students. The results reveal that learners prefer andragogy, which can be met only by business education providers shifting to learner-centred teaching and curricula. The students’ preference for andragogy reflects the changing needs of Indian employers. These findings have strategic implications for the development of student-centred teaching methods and curricula in the Indian higher education sector.
