Field-based learning encourages students to complement their conceptual knowledge with off-campus learning experiences that deepen their understanding of business issues.
Research-based assignments under the supervision of trained faculty aim to hone the research skills of students and maximize participant-centered learning experiences by exploring specific topics of interest related to real business situations.
Specially-designed classrooms reinforce instruction through multimedia technology.
Understanding being the purpose of instruction, the process of assessment at IoBM is more than just evaluation. It is a substantive contribution to learning that aims to identify gaps in student learning. IoBM’s approach to learning is rooted deeply in assessment that fosters understanding and is more than an end-of-the-semester test. It informs students and faculty about what students currently understand and how to proceed with subsequent teaching and learning.
The performance of students is constantly evaluated through surprise quizzes, hourly examinations, assignments throughout the semester, submission of term reports, presentations and final examinations at the end of the semester.
Grade points are assigned to the given grades for calculation of the cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
