Why not study in India?

Considering the study options available in India for pursuing bachelor degree course options in the field of supply chain and logistics management I preferably decided to study abroad instead of India: firstly, it would be highly competitive securing a place in top-ranked institutions in India offering bachelor degree course options in the field of supply chain and logistics management; at Indian institutions, single intake is offered for admission but students trying to get admitted are vast in numbers and hence, admission cut-offs percentages go beyond a normal range i.e. above 90 %. Theory-oriented study approach at Indian institutions can help to get a degree credential with an excellent academic record but can't make an individual enter the real-world workplace with industry-relevant practical working knowledge. Hardly any real-world case study or scenario is discussed during the course that could let the students to get aware of actual complexities associated with the particular field of the study.
