Some say that “Managers are born and not made” whereas few are of the opinion that “Some are born with it and some imbibe it”. Gone are the days when education was treated as a mere product and not a wholesome process. In today’s rapidly changing world, the emphasis is on how the budding managers and students can tackle a situation and can apply their knowledge through an effective teaching and learning process. In today’s managerial world, the element of work-life balance is one of the key factors for the employees to achieve success. Keeping this in mind, we can see that organizations have devised various policies, programs and initiatives to help their employees to achieve the work-life balance between the work commitments and family responsibilities. The effectiveness of such programs and initiatives depends upon the extent of usage by the employees to achieve work-life balance. It has been found that outcome-based education will play a major role in establishing a proper work-life balance in the days to come. Taking these aspects into consideration; this paper tries to study the effect of the outcome- based education on the professional world; to find out how the various skills acquired through outbound learning systems can be effective in professional practice. The paper would deal with the concept of work-life balance in this regard.
