The main pedagogical methods are lectures, case studies (Harvard, Ivey and other International and Indian cases) , simulations ( Harvard) and project work. These methods are further augmented by Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) from different providers, role-plays, group discussions and movie screenings and the actual mix varies with the nature of a course. To ensure effective learning, the Institute leverages these latest technologies to make teaching-learning process more experiential and participative integrating the benefits of group based learning.
The pedagogy is designed in such a way that academic rigour is maintained and students are continuously evaluated. Strong support from the faculty members and robust emphasis on ethics and values are the notable features of the pedagogy. Case studies help students to experience the management predicaments whereas role-plays and simulations prepare them to take decisions on a real time scenarios.
Additionally, interaction with industry experts, live projects, innovation workshops, participation in Conclaves and learning through co-curricular activities gives a feel of the real world which encourages active learning for a deeper academic and practice based foundation. This ensures that analytical skills are developed through concepts and practice, which help the students hone their decision making skills.
