Pedagogy

Our unique TLAP Model

Effective management education for practising executives needs to be contextual and hence needs to be customised vis-a-vis the organisation and the participant's specific role. While most executive education programmes begin and end in the classrooms (Teaching and Learning), we add 2 additional steps: Application (applying classroom learning to their own job context) and Project (formulating a major Capstone project for their company).

The programme has a strong application focus and in addition to periodic exams, it requires participants to apply the knowledge imparted in the classroom to their company's context through several Application Assignments. Participants are required to undertake a major Capstone Project linked to the company’s business with a designated faculty guide and a company mentor. The programme thus produces not only conceptual understanding but a demonstrated evidence of action learning.

The participants are exposed to concepts and applications through a carefully crafted blend of various pedagogic methods like classroom sessions, web learning, case analyses, simulations, games, debates, group work, presentations, guest lectures by eminent practitioners, self learning etc.

During the contact days, participants put in about 10-12 hours of study time individually and in groups. In the intervening period of about 10-12 weeks between two contact periods, the participants spend time in consolidating class learnings, submitting assignments and preparing for exams. Participants work on the Capstone Project under their mentor's guidance and simultaneously prepare for the next contact period.
