The PGP MFAB programme has a modular format that allows the participants to continue working in their business while pursuing the course. The programme is designed and taught from an owner's perspective.
Participants gain immediate results as they get the opportunity to apply concepts they have learned, in their business. Participants can also build their personal and professional connections through the vast ISB network

Pre-term reading material will be uploaded to the “Learning Management System (LMS)”. Participants will have to read this and come prepared for the classroom sessions.
Speaker series or visits may be organised during the course. These interactions complement classroom learning and bring in practical perspectives to management theories. The School also hosts a number of annual conferences and seminars with distinguished business leaders and entrepreneurs as guest speakers.
Simulations are usually software programmes which mimic real-life business situations. The participants, working in teams or alone, are asked to take decisions under conditions specified by the simulation software. These simulations help participants apply theoretical concepts to aid decision making.
Several modes of assessment will be used for the programme to assess the performance and learning by students. At the end of each course, an examination may be conducted to assess the learning of the participant. In order to successfully complete the programme, the participant must obtain an overall passing grade.
The Programme duration is around 15 months. Classes are held for one week every 6th week
The location of the participant is not a constraint as the unique modular schedule of the programme allows participants based anywhere in the world to travel to Hyderabad or Mohali to attend the programme.
Both the ISB campuses serve as an ideal location for this unique programme since they are well connected to various cities in India and other parts of the world.
