Pedagogy

The Institute believes that self–learning is the best means of learning, especially at the post–graduate level, and accordingly, faculty should act as facilitators more than teachers. A great deal of emphasis is therefore placed on experiential learning. Students are required to work on a number of corporate and academic research projects during the two years they are on campus. In addition, teaching is heavily oriented towards case studies, presentations, quizzes and assignments.

There is a strong belief in ‘learning by doing’ at the University and in the dictum that true management education goes beyond the classroom.
