Abstract

In this paper we analyse the data from our survey of the learning habits of MBA students in South Karnataka. We conducted an online Google survey on learning habits of 330 MBA students, and received 78 responses in a week, which we present in this paper with our analysis. We study the differences in between the rural and vernacular students compared to English educated city students. We conclude the paper with our insights and suggestions for improving pedagogical methods in Indian higher education.
