For the two-year MBA program, The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-ROORKEE) has endorsed a new schedule. Now, each MBA course will have a term-system wherein each year of the program will be distributed into four terms. The new structure corresponds to IIMs. The modern structure has been implemented from the August 2020 session.
The recent program structure will include one-credit, 1.5-credit, and two-credit one fast-book ‘courses that will enable more subjects to be included in the course.
Students will now be eligible to choose electives from the fourth year or first year. The IIT explained in an official statement, Teaching the electives that are in big demand by companies in the first year equips students with the vital knowledge before the placement season.
The first year of the MBA program will cover mostly theoretical subjects while the second year will be more inclined towards practical learning such as corporate interactions, industry visits, projects, and research, the institute claims. The final term will only constitute the final project.
The modern structure suits the needs of the industry and has a profitable track record of implementation in prestigious B-schools in India and abroad. The term method will enable students to explore a broader knowledge area through the introduction of diverse courses.
This will be strengthened by practical units that will equip students with critical-thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills to deal with the challenges of Industry 4.0, said M. Parida, Deputy Director, IIT-Roorkee in an official statement had gone.
Prior, IIT-Roorkee had additionally changed the evaluating framework for understudies wherein understudies would be reviewed as satisfactory (S) and unsatisfactory (U) for their performance. This was submitted as a one-time measure in view of the lockdown and classes being moved online during the term.
