Management education is a practical skill development program aimed at employment and entrepreneurship as a destination for the students. Though the attitude required for employment and entrepreneurship are different, the basic skills needed by the individual to achieve success are the same, which form the foundation for their professional success. Literature has identified three key aspects: Knowledge, Skills and Attitude as key to the professional success for students of management education. This article has used three of various action learning activities and captures the development of the skills and attitude of the students towards employment and entrepreneurship. The action learning is defined as the improvement in knowledge, skills, and attitude of the students through defined activities with identified learning outcomes. The authors provide a practical approach for use of this learning methodology by other faculty members in management education. It can be easily cited in the basic courses of management education such as principles of management, marketing management, and the Human resource management, etc. Action learning cases discussed in this paper are outcome of various activities applied in the classroom for different batches of MBA students by the authors and captured the students’ experiences as the results of action learning activities.
