Teaching Methodology and Evaluation
The objective of the program is to supplement the knowledge and experience of the students to train them to be competent managers and inculcate in them qualities required for effective leadership of organizations. The institute follows a structure of teaching that enables easier understanding and long term retention of the subjects. The classes include lecture sessions, group projects, case studies, games, role plays, audio visual presentations and student workshops. The institute tries to build team spirit by encouraging students to form groups when they undertake large assignments and report building. However, each student is evaluated separately and is graded for their contribution to the assignment. Further, students undergo frequent tests and assignments as a part of their evaluation process. The students are not only evaluated for reproducing the content understood from the classes in tests but are also evaluated on the basis of how they utilise the knowledge in simulated management scenarios. The objective of the evaluation is to be transparent to the student on the methodology followed in their evaluation and to identify the areas of strengths and isolate their areas of weakness and work on improving them. The institute converts marks given to assignments, tests, presentations and coursework to Grade points and award students a Grade Point Average (GPA) for each subject. The cumulative GPA for a trimester is shared with the student as a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). This depicts the performance of the student across all subjects throughout the program.
