IMT-Thrissur conducts its Orientation Programme in a novel way. The very first day of the programme is made special for the students. After the ceremonial address by the Director, students go through a series of interesting ice-breaking sessions and team building exercises for the rest of the day. The second half of the session is a cultural programme. The next two days are generally devoted to outbound activities leading to development of team building and problem solving skills. The last two days of the orientation programme are generally devoted to experience sharing sessions by corporate executives as well as entrepreneurs, preferably from the alumni pool.
At the core of IMT’s pedagogy is the philosophy that the more hands-on a professional program like MBA is, the better is the learning. The pedagogy at IMT is dedicatedly focused on giving experience of doing things rather than giving academic exposure only.
The pedagogy comprises of six key aspects:
Simulated and experiential learning
Through written case studies and analysis as well as multimedia case studies, role play simulation exercises, movie analysis and other similar methods.
Short live projects for solving/addressing real life business problems or issues (Externships); Internships (2 months/year long) and similar methods
Social and Cognitive Learning
Inspirational guest speakers from around the world; participation in national and international conferences; international study tours; industry visits in India; job shadowing and similar methods
Unique Executive Communication and Personal Development Programs; Outbound learning programs (adventure tours); Leadership Development and similar methods.
Fitness & Wellness
Every student is encourages to take part in sports. The campus of IMT has superior fitness and sports facilities with gymnasium, swimming pool, basketball court, cricket field, football field, badminton court, etc.
Students' performance is evaluated through a continuous system of tests, quizzes, mid-term and semester-end examination to ensure highest academic standards as well as practical orientation.
