Course programme

This Programme is designed to contribute towards managerial effectiveness in working executives to help them further their careers in management both in the corporate sector and public systems. As such, the programme seeks to build on the problem-solving skills developed through specialised experience in a particular functional area. Academic inputs provided bring out the inter-relationship among various functional areas as well as the techniques in functional areas other than those in which the participant has experience. The courses aim at providing a generalist's perspective which will enable the candidates to integrate their own function in the organisation's objectives and the larger environment. The participants are also trained in technical and functional skills such as accounting, finance, marketing, and production and are helped to develop their analytical and integrative skills so that they can define problems with clarity and adopt a methodology best suited to deal with them.
Our primary emphasis is on training the participants for collaborative team work through development of human relations skills, attitudes and values which entail a commitment to excellence, and awareness of their social and ethical responsibilities. It is hoped that the managers will become a powerful force for social and economic progress.
The programme syllabus is organised over nine terms. As for the day programme the syllabus consists of 40 courses of 120 credits. The 25 core courses are offered during the first two years with four courses every term (with the exception of five courses in Term-I). All the core courses are 3-credit courses equivalent to 30 contact hours each.
A course is scheduled in 15 sessions of two hours each to meet the requirements of 30 contact hours. In the third year 15 electives of total 45 credits are to be completed. Ordinarily five electives of 15 credits are to be completed during each term of the third year. Some of the electives are 1.5 credits where so specified. Such electives are accordingly scheduled in 15 sessions of 60 minutes each.
In order to give requisite spread over to the fifteen sessions of each course, Term-I courses are scheduled soon after the Orientation Programme over 10 days of contact sessions. The remaining five sessions and end-term examinations are completed after an interval of at least 10 weeks when the participants return for the next on-campus visit (OCV). Again Term-II courses begin while the participants are still on campus to complete their Term-I courses and are again completed after a minimum of 10 weeks interval when the participants return for the next OCV. This cycle repeats for all the nine term courses. The Programme is thus spread over 10 on-campus-visits and the syllabus is organised in nine terms.
With such structuring of classes the participants get a proper spread-over to read the course material and absorb the courses without having to travel twice within their 15-day on campus visit each time.
