CURRICULUM

1. Management-In-Practice / Field Work and internships
The project assignment with organizations (Management-in-Practice or MIP/Fieldwork) has three components. A 60 day fieldwork (MIP Phase 1) after term 3 introduces the student to an organizational/business setting. During the eight week summer project (MIP Phase 2) after term 3, real life managerial issues confronted by organizations are identified, analyzed and discussed by the students. Most projects involve a large component of field work. The student is usually attached to a project guide from industry, to help him complete this stage. Possible solutions to the problems are arrived at, and presented to the organizations for implementation. A member of the faculty works as a guide for a group of students, and co-ordinates such analysis and discussions. During MIP Phase 3 the student is required to to do businessscan for 30 days. In both the presentation and the report are evaluated by a committee.

2. BusinessScan (Research & Innovation Skills)
BusinessScan is market research fair, and is organized by TAXILA Students. Students seek out companies which have certain market research objectives, and wish to conduct the market research and obtain relevant information. The fair is organized so as to take advantage of the unique demographic profile of the local populace. The students conduct the data collection in creative ways, and analyze and interpret the results for the client companies. It is expected that students take keen interest and associate with various tasks related to BusinessScan during the second year of study at the institute and later pick up the two credit elective course on BusinessScan during their second year. BusinessScan is a compulsory course for students specializing in the Marketing area.

3. COURSES & CREDITS (PGDM, 120 CREDITS)
A credit is a term used to denote the extent of effort required to be put in by a student. One credit is used to indicate 10 hours of contact for classroom instruction. However, each session of classroom interaction is to be supplemented with the time equivalent of about three hours of preparation by the student. The two-year Post Graduate Programme in Management consists of a total of about 120 credits of study. Courses equivalent to about 24 credits are normally slated for each of the first three terms, and credits between 15 to 20 credits are slated for each of the next three terms, across the two academic years.

3. First Year (72 Credits)
The first and second term courses are compulsory and all students must go through the same. These enable the student with the basic knowledge about different functional areas of management. The student must know about the basic tools and concepts in different disciplines, and must also understand how organizations function. The student must also start appreciating how the disciplines are connected together.

During the second year of the Programme, there are certain courses that are compulsory in nature. The remaining credits and the students must choose from a basket of courses offered by the different areas of study at the Institute (viz., MARKETING, FINANCE, SYSTEMS, OPERATIONS, GENERAL MANAGEMEN, THE HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT, INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS). The elective credits are to the order of around 35, and the total credits thus are 48. The credits for electives shall be decided by concerned faculty with the approval of dean IN WRITING. The student need to take two Majors from elective streams.
Students may opt for Auditing of certain elective courses, on a non-credit basis. This will be subject to the consent of the respective course faculty. PGDM Schedules will not be altered to facilitate Auditing.
Students can also pursue areas of their specific interest through the mechanism of Course of Independent Study (CIS). Under the CIS scheme, a maximum of 2 credits worth of work (minimum 20 hrs) can be undertaken, Or else Taxila currency can be used to get maximum 2 credits. Taxila currency to the value of 3000 will be equivalent to one credit. This need to be submitted by the student before Feb 2015. From these two options, student needs to opt for one scheme only.
The total credits, the actual electives to be offered and the term in which they are to be offered are subject to review at the beginning of the second year. Certain electives may have caps on the number of students based on criteria decided by course faculty. It is also a policy of the institute that courses with less than 25% registrations are dropped. TAXILA reserves the right to change the total credits/courses without prior notice. The content and relevance of a course are assessed by the academic areas before a course is offered. An indicative list of courses and credits for the second year is given below:

3.3 International Exchange Programs:
International Exchange Programs would enable our students to gain cross-cultural perspectives, and help them relate with a global environment and work force. These are essential in today’s world, where they have to work in transnational companies, and may be required to be located anywhere in the world. Students would also appreciate how India is viewed as a business location and a market opportunity, by people from other places.
