Inspite of the predominant use of the case method
as the pedagogy to bring in real life management problems inot the
class room, it stil remains an abstraction unless participants are
exposed to real life. This necessitates building an interface between
classroom learning and real life management. This interface has
been built through the Experiential Learning modue at our
institute. This is a unique endeavour, a compulsory part of the
curriculum, which involves a continuous association with the industry
for over two years broken into three parts:
- Weekly visits to a company in the first year
- Summer training at the end of the first year, and
- An oganization based integrated project in the second year.
Industrial Training (first year):- During
the first term, participants undergo guided tours of organizations
of different types: manufacturing and service, profit and non-profit,
private and government. From the second term onwards, each participant
is attached to a company in and around Indore where he/she works
under the guidance of a co-ordinating faculty from the institute.
The participants visit the organizations once a week for an entire
working day as regular employees and are exposed to all departments
and functions of the organization. The instructors also impart specific
guidelines and assignments to be carried out during the participants'
Summer Training:- Each participant works on a project for
a period of eight to ten weeks in an organization at the end of
the first year. The objective is to allow participants intense,
day-to-day interaction and experience with organizations. This enables
the participants to apply the knowledge they have gained in the
first year of the programme through coursework and experiential
learning, to an existing problem. It also facilitates an informed
career choice by the participants and gives an opportunity to organizations
to evaluate summer trainees for future employment.
Organizational Project (second year):- The participants are
required to work in teams on a project for their first year experiential
learning organization. The participants submit reports and make
presentations to organizations, and wherever feasible, get involved
in the implementation of their recommendations.
The objective of this exercise is to provide for the application
of knowledge and skills progressively acquired in the entire programme
to a first hand problem. This facilitates integration of theory
and practice on a continuous basis, thereby imbibing in the managers
of tomorrow, the true spirit of 'learning by doing'.
