Students are the assets of our Institute. We believe that it is our responsibility to mould them in such a way that they become the assets of the Industry. Our students are future managers. Keeping this in mind, the students of our Institute are trained right from day one to tackle any difficult situation that they are likely to face in the future.The Institute believes that a self learning attitude of the students is the key to success. Thus, we aim at developing a self learning attitude among our students rather than restricting their thoughts. This self learning attitude when coupled with theoretical knowledge helps the students to think and come out with innovative solutions thereby achieving our objects of providing the industry with our assets that would lead to their success. Following techniques are used to improve the skills of our students.
The case study method is used to apply theory to real-life situations and to solve real problems. Through this method, students learn to be in real situations, make decisions, deal with consequences of those decisions, and learn from real mistakes. Nothing will ever replace learning from experience. The Cases (which involve real situations although names may be changed) allow the students to “simulate” real life situations when they don't have the luxury of having years of experience. Management students use case problems and experiential exercises as “Laboratory” opportunities to experiment with real organizations in the class room settings.
