Teaching methodology

The entire 2-year PGDM programme of IMT Ghaziabad is based on industry requirements and practices, which were assimilated further, based on inputs from alumni and industry experts. Every session starts with the Pre-foundation programme and Foundation Module which sees more than 20 top corporate leaders who address the incoming students on wide-ranging topics in the first 10–12 days

Faculty of IMT Ghaziabad believes in ‘relearn how to teach’ and, at the same time, an opportunity for the students to ‘relearn how to learn’. This is in line with Professor Srikant Datar’s observations in his book ‘Rethinking the MBA’, which states that students today are much more knowledgeable about the course and can do a lot on their own. So the role of the faculty has to be redefined in terms of ‘leading’ a discussion rather than just ‘telling’. It should also be about leading students into creative work to come up with something more original, leading students to the library and field research, making students capable of sharing with the rest of the class and defending points of view in the classroom. As a result, in addition to case studies, newer methods like simulations are now the part of the curriculum.

All students of IMT Ghaziabad undergo a compulsory simulation programme. As a part of the accreditation process with the global agency AACSB the entire methodology have become structured and documented systematically. Students now have documented assurance of learning.
