The program would have the state-of- the-art curriculum that reckons the current dynamics in management theory, practice and applications. In credit point equivalent terms, students would be pursuing 28 full credit courses (of 3 credit points each). In addition, during the last trimester, all students have to necessarily do a field project in their chosen area and submit a report to the institute. Successful completion of the project within the stipulated time is a prerequisite for obtaining the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Executive).
Given the nature of management courses, different faculty members would be using different methods of pedagogy – case studies/caselets, role plays, group activities, simulation exercises, lectures, MOOCs, participative learning techniques, etc. In addition, IMI organizes a large number of interactions with the industry experts through events, guest lectures and workshops/seminars. Also, on best efforts basis, it would provide opportunities for students to work on ‘live projects’ of different organisations. Moreover, IMI would arrange sessions to hone students’ grooming, presentation and communication skills. Overall, the objective is to ensure that students get an exceptional exposure and learning experience
Evaluation would be continuous and thus there would be quizzes, case presentations, assignments, surprise tests, project submissions and term examinations. This would mean students have to stretch and perform well on the academic front on a consistent and on-going basis. Like most reputed management schools in India and abroad, IMI uses a relative grading system for student evaluation. Thus, using a 10-point scale grades would be awarded in a course not simply based on the absolute mark scored but by the relative ranking of a student vis-à-vis his/her classmates.
