The programme places importance on both theoretical and hands-on learning. While classroom learning through participation in the forms of discussions and case studies, presentations, simulation games, assignments, etc., emphasises conceptual clarity, practical inputs are provided through the rigorous field work system, which complements the classroom inputs by throwing light on the practical dimension of the profession. The insights that emerge out of such an experience make students conceptually strong and successful in practice of the profession. All these, coupled with the focused attention that students get owing to the small size of the batch, makes personal learning highly effective. Field work is a continuous process, which seeks to facilitate student's exposure to varied industry sectors. Besides field work, students also undertake internships with organisations for a period ranging from 6-8 weeks, which is seen as an opportunity for the student to learn significantly from, and contribute meaningfully to organisations.
