BEYOND SYLLABUS

Teaching and training system at SSTM are not confined to the University syllabus. We teach many more subjects like Entrepreneurial Development, Contemporary issues in HR, Marketing, Knowledge Management, Wealth Management, Project Management and Funding to empower and help the students face the modern competitive global environment. Though these are non- credit courses, internal marks are awarded on the basis of the earnestness and interest the students show in the study of non-credit courses.

SCIENCE OF TEACHING PEDAGOGY

At SSTM, the faculty has total freedom to choose the method that is best suited for the session. A variety of teaching and learning techniques are employed to impart knowledge and skills.

Lectures, case analysis, simulation games and exercises, syndicates, group discussions, video sessions, team projects, game plays, quiz programmes or computer simulations and practical project work are commonly used. These help develop conceptual, analytical and decision making skills and prepare students to face the challenges of the complex business and organizational environment. Students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with the faculty. Special attention is bestowed when core courses are taught.

COUNSELLING / MENTORING SPECIAL TO SCMS GROUP

This is a novel approach for betterment of education. Immediately after admission, the students are divided into groups of 8 or 10. Each group is assigned to a faculty member who will be their mentor for the remaining two years.

The groups meet to assess, analyse and rehearse. Skills are honed, programmes prepared and issues are discussed. Members of the groups prepare and make presentations. The assigned faculty member closely monitors activities of the group and provides necessary guidance.

This programme help students shed their inhibitions, develop communication skills and become good orators. It effectively supplements personality development programmes conducted at regular intervals by renowned experts at the campus

INSTITUTE INDUSTRY INTERACTION

At SSTM, our MBA programme is re-engineered to be based as close as possible to the real-world criteria. Our faculty will apply their innovative professional expertise to help students assess, develop and apply all the managerial skills, which will make them effective managers.

As part of the teaching system, we conduct interface sessions periodically called Institute Industry Interaction (III) by inviting practising managers of different disciplines. These lively sessions help students familiarise with problems that a manager faces and solutions he arrives at in real-life situations

The invited industry leaders also help build rapport with students, making every session a rewarding experience for both.

INTERNAL ASSESSMENT

The instructors will have the freedom to decide the criteria for internal evaluation of each course. However, the assessment criteria can include, internal assessment tests, assignments, project work, group / individual class presentations, case studies, seminars, attendance and class participation. The instructor will make available on LAN clear guidelines regarding the assessment criteria to the class before the commencement of the course. The internal assessment results will be published on the notice board and the students will be given at least a week to have clarifications, if any, before the external examination for the semester.

EXTERNAL EXAM

For all the courses, a written examination of the duration of three hours would be conducted at the end of each semester. Each examination carries a maximum of 60 marks. The end term examination is conducted by the Mahatma Gandhi University.

In case a candidate fails to secure the required minimum of 50 percent marks in the internal assessment, one may secure it by repeating the course altogether in a regular class in a subsequent semester. However, such improvement in sessionals for a course cannot be attempted more than once.

PASS AND GRADES

The minimum marks required for a pass in the MBA Programme is 50 percent.

Candidates who have secured not less than 60 percent marks in aggregate for all the four semesters shall be declared to have passed MBA degree examination in First Class.
