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, assignments, field – visits, worships and labs. A variety of seminars are organized by students and faculty members during the academic session. There is a strong belief that at the Institute in ‘learning by doing’ and that a true management education goes beyond the classroom. The students are therefore exposed to ‘non – management’ programmes like yoga, music appreciation, literature appreciation, etc; and are encouraged to participate in all co – curricular activities. Field – visits, projects and seminars in areas of social marketing are other methods employed regularly to improve the social sensitivity of students.
