Learning Methodology

The institute provides an excellent academic environment with accent on self-learning. The teaching and learning methodologies follow a rigorous regime that involves intensive and extensive working on challenging academic assignments. The teaching is emphasized through student centered and discovery method of learning in place of the conventional teacher centered learning. Emphases is laid on independent study and self learning, problem solving and providing solutions on live problems, lectures and seminars by professionals from industry / research organizations.

Thus, teaching – learning methodology aims at developing self-reliance, initiative, and spirit of inquiry, learning by observation and discussion and developing life long learning skills. Exposure to state-of-the-art technology and professional and field experiences are brought to students through a large number of visiting faculties from the industry and mentoring exercises.

The system of assessment is credit based and employs continuous evaluation through tests, surprise quizzes, home assignments, laboratory work, industry projects, presentations etc.

Institute also enables students to inculcate high ethical standards, leadership qualities, capability to think in multidimensional ways and a broad understanding of the competitive business and technological environment.


A variety of teaching and learning techniques are employed to impart knowledge and skills to students at FMS. Lectures, case analysis, simulation games and exercises, syndicates, group discussions and practical project work are commonly used to develop conceptual, analytical and decision making skills and to prepare the students to face the challenges of the complex business and organisational environment. An attempt is made to assess the students’ performance through a continuous system of tests, quizzes, mid-term and semester-end examination to ensure highest academic standards as well as practical orientation.


Though classroom learning is given emphasis at FMS, students are required to undertake a number of practical projects in the different courses of the programme for which the information gathered from business/industry is analyzed and presented in the form of reports.


While exposing the students to the theories and concepts of modern management, no efforts are spared to develop a practical orientation in them. After completing the first two semesters of instruction during the first year, all MBA (Full-Time) students are required to undertake practical training in an organization for a period of ten weeks during the summer months. Each student is selected by a reputed company and given a practical assignment. The student works under the guidance of a senior manager in the organization and submits a report to the organization.


Every student in the final semester of the programme is required to undertake a project assignment under the guidance of a faculty supervisor. The student should choose a topic on which primary data is to be gathered and analyzed in order to prepare a dissertation, which is evaluated by a panel of experts.

It has been AIM’s endeavor to rigorously groom the students based on 3 pronged approach of academic, professional and personal development. The students come out of this transformation process to take out on the challenges the corporate world presents.
