Methodology

Sustainability is an emerging field and IIM Lucknow is among the very few institutes in India, perhaps among very few in the world also, to have pioneered a Sustainable Management Programme. Needless to say, the continuously evolving knowledge in the field is more than matched by the continuous evolution of curriculum.

The programme is equipped with state of the art infrastructure in terms of audio-video enabled class rooms, extensive collection of books in the library and ready access to industries and corporate leaders.

Along with the rigorous routine of lectures, case discussions, exercises, seminars, role plays, management games ensure deeper understanding of theoretical concepts through application oriented participative learning. Team-based assignments, term papers, project work, presentation and computer-based learning methods help build an orientation towards working effectively in larger, and many a times, multi-cultural and multi-functional teams in the future workplace.

We believe that through our teaching we enable our students to acquire a unique position which may influence the very course of future. Special emphasis is laid on the development of socially and environmentally sensitive global citizens. Leadership Talks by industry leaders bring in the latest trends in sustainability and help establish a direct connect with the concepts taught in the classroom.

Academic Evaluation
Academic Evaluation
The academic performance evaluation system is viewed as a means to promote learning process, and is designed to assess the ability of the student to apply knowledge for problem-solving and increasing organisational effectiveness. The evaluation is a continuous process based on assignments, quizzes, project work, seminar presentation, viva-voce, mid-term test and final examination.
A ten-point grading scale with corresponding letter grades is used as follows:

The Term Grade Point Average and Cumulative Grade Point Average are computed in each term as the credit-weighted averages of individual grades in and up to each term respectively. The academic criteria for continuation in the programme, promotion to Second Year, and award of diploma, are specified in the PGPSM Manual which lays down the policies and procedures governing the programme. The Manual is given to all students at the time of registration at the beginning of the academic session.
