Pre-Course Reading Material

Pre-course reading materials which are in the form of text books, cases, articles etc., will be made available to all participants in advance. Participants are expected to spend 8 to 10 hours per week studying the material before they commence classes each term. Online assessments and pre-course projects are also incorporated in the programme to ensure academic rigour.

Programme Delivery

The course delivery will comprise a mix of in-class instruction, followed by online tutorials during office hours. Online tutorials will help students solve problems, help clarify doubts, and provide access to faculty during office hours


Online as well as in-class assessments and projects are also incorporated in the programme to ensure academic rigour. The academic committee will set minimum grade point criteria for graduating from the programme.

Industry Speakers/Visits

An integral part of the EPMM is interactions with industry speakers and regular visits to relevant organisations throughout the course. These sessions will be part of almost each module, and will be designed to enhance the understanding of the concepts of the module from a practitioner’s perspective, making it easier to apply the learning immediately.


Simulations help maximise on classroom learning as the decisions that the participants have to make in these simulations replicate the kind of decisions they would encounter in their respective organisations. They let participants apply the management theories learnt in class to a simulated business environment and evaluate the results of their decisions.

Action Learning/Capstone Projects

Action learning is an important pedagogical tool that is designed to give participants a chance to practice their management theories in real life scenarios. There will be an action learning project, which will be performed in a group under a mentor/guide
from ISB. The projects can be taken up by the individual from the organisation wherein he is currently employed
or can bid for the projects with other organisations.

Academic Rigor

ISB expects all participants to follow the school’s honour code and adhere
to the highest code of integrity.
