Learning Methodology The small class size allows us to use diverse learning methods to help you acquire knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful business manager and leader. Field trips and guest speakers: Depending on the nature of the course, field trips to different companies may be organized. Several business experts from leading corporations visit classes to share their experiences and insights. Skill building workshops and seminars: Students have the opportunity to attend various company presentations and workshops. The SIM also offers seminars and workshops in collaboration with fellow HSG programs, SIM corporate partners, the Career & Corporate Services, and the alumni network. Intensive individual research: Students are required to undertake an intensive individual research in the form of a Masters' Thesis on the topic of their choice, subject to approval from the faculty. In this era of information, business leaders need to be able to collect, analyse and interpret data to make better decisions. Assessment: Student assessments are partly individual and partly group-based. The individual element may include formal exams, case write-ups, evaluation of academic articles, take-home exams and so on. Group elements may include group presentations and group papers. Exams are either central or de-central. Central examinations take place on pre-determined dates while de-central exams take place during scheduled lecture times during the semester.
