Required professional and personal competencies of teachers were identified by systematic literature review, then experience survey was used to adapt them for management teaching, and primary data was collected through questionnaire, on how frequently these competencies are being practiced by the management teachers in different categories of B-Schools in National Capital Region, Delhi in India.
