The curriculum is complemented by the Problem Based Learning pedagogical approach which will encourage students to work collaboratively, through a process of inquiry, analysis and synthesis, to arrive at solution sets for real development problems. This approach will make the learning process more holistic and organic for the students.
Electives would be offered on certain functional themes enabling students to develop depth and expertise in an area of their choice. Functions could cover areas like Corporate Trusteeship & Development (CSR), Communication & Engagement, People Engagement & Development, Programme Management & Operations etc.
