Our methodology is unique in its activities, goals and attainments. Though theoretical inputs are essential to any business management program we do not give it undue emphasis as others do. Our stress is on the overall development of the personality of the individual. We believe that the old concepts of management are no more relevant in the current scenario because of the technological changes and innovations that are fast transforming the very basis of the concept of management. Managing people effectively is the mantra of success for a modern manager. Organisational & personal goal setting in light of changing social & economic realities ensures success. Periodic reviews & inputs contribute significantly in making the learning process highly integrated. With this philosophy the syllabus is reviewed and analysed every year to maintain track on latest issues, a process ad- infinitum.
