Pedagogy
The  main  pedagogical  methods  are  lectures,  case  studies  (Harvard,  Ivey  and  other International  and  Indian  cases)  simulations  (Tata  interactive,  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.

The pedagogy is designed in such a way that academic rigour is maintained and students are  continuously  evaluated.  Strong  support  from  the  faculties  and  robust  emphasis  on ethics and values are the  notable features of  the  pedagogy.  Case studies help student to experience  the  management  predicaments  whereas  role-plays  and  simulations  prepare them to take decisions on the 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 better a foundation.The pedagogy ensures that analytical skills are developed through concepts and practice, which help the students hone their decision making skills.
