The Program Design
NALSAR envisages the fulfillment of its IPM Program objectives only through a well-researched course design and a holistic pedagogical approach. The curriculum aspects of learning structure design, student engagement, continuous assessments and the integration with Industry is interwoven into a seamless program.
The IPM Program is designed in consonance with the Choice Based Credit Policy of the UGC and consists of core, ability enhancement (compulsory and skill enhancement) and elective (discipline specific and generic) courses. The students have an option to choose from ‘Discipline Specific’ and ‘Generic electives’ at BBA stage from among those provided in the course map. At the MBA Level, the student have a wide basket of electives to choose from and that include a) Business Regulations, b) Corporate Governance, c) Court Management, d) Finance, e) Human Resources, f) Innovation and Sustainability, g) Marketing, and h) Operations & Systems. The courses and electives are reviewed every year in an effort to keep the student learning relevant to the industry requirements.
NALSAR adopts a learner-centric approach in its pedagogy and the teaching approaches adopted by its faculty are in alignment with this overall approach. Curriculum delivery is through an active student engagement based teaching methodologies like case studies (IIM – Ahmedabad Case Collection, Harvard Business Review Cases, Emerald Case Studies) E-books from Pearson, Tata McGraw Hill and many more resources in NALSAR E-Library), role plays, live projects, group activities and student presentations apart from classroom lectures. The application and practical insights on the theoretical concepts taught in classroom are gained through curated interventions from Industry experts sharing their real time perspectives.
