THE PEDAGOGY


The range of teaching and learning methods used at JIMS includes lectures, case studies and presentations on strategic and contemporary issues, simulations through quizzes, assignments, contests, competitions and practical projects. A strong emphasis is laid on the use of technology in learning. Further enrichment is provided by way of guest lectures, workshops and seminars, wherein an intelligent awareness on current corporate issues and challenges is generated.

The faculty acts and works in close association with the students to help them gain a better understanding of current economic and non-economic issues and studies. Students are taught to comprehend live corporate situations while also grasping a more realistic approach to decision making.

The pedagogy lays emphasis on increasing the human skills through clear conceptual understanding of subjects, with complete exposure to industrial practices. The approach includes the following steps:


CLASSROOM LEARNING
The latest theoretical inputs are provided by the faculty of the Institute.


SELF STUDY
To keep in constant touch with the changing business environment, the future managers are required to gather information from newspapers, magazines, journals, reference books and internet. This is a part of the rigorous curriculum.


CASE STUDY METHOD
The case study method serves a dual purpose of understanding a real life situation and developing analytical skills.


PROJECT REPORTS
As an integral part of the curriculum, students are required to work on a research project on a topic of their interest or specialization. This is an excellent opportunity for students to have close interaction with the industry-experts who often give them live projects to work on. On completion of their projects, the students are required to make presentation of their reports before the industry representatives, faculty members and students.


SUMMER INTERNSHIP
The students are required to undergo summer internship for a period of six to eight weeks with reputed companies. This enables them to understand theoretical concepts learned at the Institute in a real-life corporate context. While working on live and time-bound projects, they gain first-hand experience of the corporate culture. The process helps them develop professional attitude, sense of responsibility, analytical ability and leadership qualities. It also helps the industry in assessing the students’ performance and potential, on the basis of which pre-placement offers are often made.
