The Learning Model

1. Prepare

Get immersed in the context of the upcoming session by familiarizing yourself with the reading material and case studies shared with you before the class. Group and individual study hours before the class will ensure your active participation in the learning process. Recommended time: 2 to 4 hours per week.

2. Learn

With some of the top faculty from the institute as your facilitators, get ready for an intense and immersive learning experience as the groups discuss and analyze the case of the day from all possible angles. In this process, the cohort brings in its rich professional experience to the class and raises the overall learning experience for everyone. Kindly note, there are no recorded sessions provided as this is a Live Learning module. Time: 6 hours per week.

3. Reflect

Learning diaries and self-reflection after the class ensures that you internalize the concepts learnt, consolidate your knowledge and begin figuring out ways on how to put the relevant knowledge into practice. Recommended time: 1 hour post class.

4. Apply

The six-month weekend programme gives you ample opportunity to apply the management principles to your workplace in real time. Participants are encouraged to actively apply learnings in their workplace and share with the group and faculty during subsequent sessions.
