Pre-course 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 world-class curriculum will start off by building basic analytical skills followed by a mixture of management courses across functions. This will lay the foundation for advanced courses in strategy and leadership.
The management courses will cover Accounting, Strategy, Marketing, Leadership, and Finance
In addition, a set of courses that focus on unique family business-related challenges will form an integral part of the curriculum.
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.
