The programme starts with online preparatory courses that form the foundation for future courses.
Online Preparatory Modules
Online Preparatory modules are sourced from Harvard Business School Publishing. The participants will spend time refreshing their knowledge in quantitative, accounting and finance areas.
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 these materials before they come for classes each term. Online assessments and pre-course projects are also incorporated into the programme to ensure academic rigour.
Online Component
The programme includes a part of each course being taught online – either synchronously or asynchronously. This helps in getting the concepts clarified before actual classroom sessions begin or to conclude the classroom sessions with a wrap-up.
Classroom Discussions
The classroom discussions are an integral part of each course. The enriching lectures and discussion are key to learning concepts.
Cases from various sectors and geographies are discussed and debated to understand the applicability of management concepts to real life examples.
Business simulations, which mimic real-life business situations are used to help participants apply theoretical concepts for decision-making.
Industry Speakers / Visits
Speaker series or visits may be organised during the course. These interactions complement classroom learning and bring in practical perspectives to management theories. The speakers discuss diverse topics such as international growth, corporate diversity, entrepreneurship, corporate ethics and consumer behaviour. The School also hosts a number of annual conferences and seminars with distinguished business leaders and entrepreneurs as guest speakers.
