I don’t agree with

I don’t agree with this point. .

All Managers are first human beings and society starts with each individual, so as an element of the society they do their part as other professionals does.

Now coming to the question does a management degree adds any special social responsibility or does managers do anything extraordinary from other professionals?

Few does and few don’t as it happens in any other professionals and finally everything comes down to each individual. Those people who are responsible towards society always servers it in many different ways but people having an unique degree in management like MBA in forest, MBA in social sector or rural management does something more as a part of their profession and career.
 
The work culture and environment has changed significantly in last 6/7 decades because of human resource management. Due to the depth study and experiments of management we have come to a point where we know how much to work in a week or in a day. It helps us balancing the work we do and the amount of rest our body needs and thus creating a healthy society.

The contribution of

The contribution of management study and managers is immense to the society.

If Doctors don’t add value to the society, If Engineers don’t add value to the society, If Lawyers don’t add value to the society, if mathematicians/economist/ etc don’t add value to the society then Managers also don’t add value to the society. .

What is society?
As already said earlier, we each individual forms the society and all the professions together helps in nourishing it. If any ingredient of the society stops functioning then we wont exist.

The way management education has evolved in last one century I think now it forms the core of the society. Can we imagine any industry/business to exits with out the help of managers?  Be it engineering/medicine/agriculture or any other sectors, managers hold key positions and take the most important decisions that moves the society in right direction.

Are mangers supposed to do

Are mangers supposed to do anything special than others. . .

To give a better answer to this question I think we can put each human in two categories.

I. People who are directly involved in building the society and thus there by making it a better place to live. For example: IAS/Police/Politics/etc
No society can exist without the active participation and collaboration of members of this group of people.

II. Rest fall into a second category – Mangers, Engineers, Doctors. .
All the members of these groups within civil society don’t take any active participation in building a society but they are supposed to do their own job and there by helping the whole human race.

So I really don’t get the meaning of the question:

Managers do not add value to the society?

I completely disagree to

I completely disagree to the fact that managers donot add value to the society...afterall managers are also individuals......

and what has a management degree to do with building a society,irrespective of the fact that what proffession one belongs to, it is every individual's responsibilty towards the society....can I believe that people other than managers actually add value to the society.....this is completely self consciousness as to how u take the initiative towarda a good society...A person should.....himself first stand as a human being and look at the society rather than seing him as a manager or doctor or engineer.....ofcourse proffession helps one.....to limit your ways of approach how you can serve the society as per your ability.As per my view......manager have greater roles to play in adding value to the society.

Managers social or professional

Hi,

I agree with the point that managers are a bit professional. They have to show productivity they have to go beyond the limit in their professional life. They have to compare their products and services from other rivals.

But this is one part of the coin. If you will look for the other part they are also a human being. They also have emmotions, feelings and thought. They also follow the rules of society. In fact they follow the rules and responsibility of society better than other. Because they can understand that why the rules are made.

In short we can say that managers are the perfect balace between the professional life and social life. For instance if they have to touch the sky among their rivals they also have to understand the personnal problems of workers. I hope a good manager is a good balancer(a person who makes perfect balance).

Yes they do

In various activities of the societies be it commercial or non comercial managers are needed. In todays world most of the things would be messy
if there is no management. And to do management we need managers . Thus managers definitely add value to the society. They do it in the same way
as a doctor does or an engineer does. The difference between them and the manager is that manager generally thrives in the corporate world. Thus may not
interact with common people more often. But it is then upto the individual to go go a step ahead and contribute to the world outside the professional domain.
