At SoM, the students go through rigorous classroom training by our highly qualified faculty, supplemented with regular sessions by expert practitioners coming from business and industry. SoM believes in regular sessions by management practitioners as an essential part of good management education and training. In addition, management conclaves and seminars, conferences conducted annually and international conference once in 2 years, enrich the knowledge base of the students at the school. They also get hands-on experience to organize and participate in such activities. Students at SoM also get opportunities to listen and learn from global experts who are invited to the University from time to time. Fulltime residential program and two years of engaging in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, also add value to the personality development of our students.

Teaching pedagogy at SoM has a balanced mix of lectures, case studies, student presentations, student-research, seminars and other modern methods of education and training in management. Summer internship program of 8 weeks’ duration with organisations, helps students to apply and experiment, what they have learnt in classrooms. This helps organizations to have fresh and innovative ideas coming from these students and getting solutions for their business-related issues by these future budding managers. And students get their learnings reinforced further. In short, SoM attempts to develop highly trained managers to meet the present as well as the future requirements of the business and industry.
