The curriculum design ensures that the pre-requisite courses, wherever recommended, are completed sequentially. This program aims at a multi-disciplinary approach and offers a blend of courses in the areas of Finance, Economics, Statistics, Marketing, Organizational Behavior and other spheres of management.

E-MBA program has been designed with a view to offering the participants strategic insight into key business issues by adopting a problem-solving approach to imparting the course inputs. There is an overwhelming need to excite the working managers to this awareness that all business management decisions are often made in extremely fluid and volatile business conditions with many unknown variables impacting the business outcomes. In order to work effectively, such a manager will need exposure to several management inputs along with an ability to analyze the underlying issues impacting their business. There is pre-requisite course-work within the program which will ensure that participants get an opportunity to understand the practical application of concepts learnt.
The program provides an opportunity to specialize in Finance, Marketing, Information Systems, HR and Operations, subject to a minimum registration of 10 students for a given specialization. Executives can opt to specialize in their functional area through a careful choice of available options. There is an option for dual specialization. One can also choose to opt for a general management program instead of specializing in any area.
The pedagogy includes lectures, case studies, quizzes, business games, role-plays, simulations, group work and even films to ensure interactive learning sessions in each class. This is a clear departure from Ã¢â‚¬Å“Chalk and talkÃ¢â‚¬Â approach and surely includes lot of pre-reading work on the part of the participants to ensure that every session is a real-value exercise. Participants should expect surprise tests and quizzes to stimulate their imagination; this will also encourage pre-class preparation and self-study.
There is a special provision for group work in each course in order to ensure that there is adequate peer-learning. Participants will be divided into small study groups so that they can work in groups and later submit assignments, presentations or projects as an outcome of their team work. The group synergy will foster networking with like-minded business associates who will be of immense value in terms of an ever-lasting contact and a professional leverage.
A Dissertation, which is the equivalent of 4 credits, is a compulsory feature of this program, and this will have to be submitted at the end of the program. Adequate time will be given to the participant to complete the dissertation. This dissertation will not just reinforce the learning acquired in the area of specialization but will also help the student in developing a perspective on research.
