New Delhi : Despite the rapidly evolving field of management education, Jaipuria School of Business (JSB) remains committed to fulfilling the vision of its founder, the late noted philanthropist Dr. Rajaram Jaipuria, to strengthen India’s intellectual foundation by producing globally competitive, ethical leaders.

The Seth Anandram Jaipuria Group of Educational Institutions is a prominent organisation in northern and central India, including 16 primary and secondary schools, 4 pre-schools, 2 business colleges, and a major teachers’ training academy. The organisation has been around for 77 years and has a current membership of 20,000 students, 15,000 alumni, and 900 teachers.

The PGDM programme at Jaipuria School of Busniess in Indirapuram, Ghaziabad (Full form of PGDM – Post Graduate Diploma in Management) is split into 6 trimesters, with each trimester lasting 11-12 weeks, and has been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD), Government of India. It prepares you to manage enterprises holistically by providing a solid grounding in the fundamentals as well as exposure to a variety of functional and industry-specific electives. The subjects themselves are suggested based on their timely relevance and your particular areas of interest.

By the end of the semester, you will be on the cutting edge of becoming a well-rounded manager with the foresight to take on the challenges of the future, thanks to the course’s careful balancing of functional knowledge, industry practise, and employability certifications. The flagship PGDM programme at JSB provides students with a strong foundation in both theory and practise. The curriculum is designed to play a significant role in getting pupils ready for the workforce. It’s really well-organized, and it uses a novel approach to education that prioritises the kids’ growth in all areas.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) is a two-year professional management programme. The standard school year is broken up into three twelve-week terms called trimesters. Students might choose to double-focus in any two areas of management by taking additional electives in those areas. The range of concentrations includes “marketing management,” “financial management,” “human resource management,” “operations,” “business analytics,” and “international business,” among others. Each subfield also provides cutting-edge training for upcoming occupations. The Programme includes the following: 27 required courses, 12 optional courses (10 functional and 2 open electives), many workshops, industry-specific certifications, pre-placement trainings, Capstone projects, Summer Internship, and more.

Outcome-based Education @JSB

The outcome-based approach to designing courses at JSB intends to make the expectations more transparent for students, any regulatory or accrediting body and all stakeholders. Instead of the instructor deciding the syllabus, this approach starts with a specification of what the student is expected to achieve by the end of the program/course.

These learning outcomes could be knowledge acquisition, mastery of skills, or development of attitude or ability. These outcomes will be specified in publicly shared statements in a clear way, along with the assessment criteria by which they will be measured. The programme is then written; complete with assessments designed to test the criteria in a way that it facilitates students to work towards achieving the stated outcomes.

The PGDM Programme has clearly defined Program Outcomes which have been carefully drafted to ensure that they include subject-specific skills and generic skills, including transferable global skills and competencies. The Programme Outcomes (POs) focus on knowledge and skills that prepare students for further study, employment and citizenship.

Within the framework of Outcome-based Education, the three most important learning methods used by JSB faculty are:

Case Based Learning (CBL) is generally a decision-making or problem-solving exercise. The actual data and information of an organization are given to students along with information about the decision-makers and others. Students are then required to identify the issues or problems and analyze the given information to solve the problem and make a recommendation. In CBL, students are highly involved in classroom learning.

Problem Based Learning (PBL) is an unstructured or semi-structured real-world problem. Unlike the case studies where information is already available, students take the responsibility of identifying the problem, getting essential information, resources, etc., and thus the learning takes place. Teachers and even participants themselves become facilitators/mentors/guides.

Project Based Learning requires students to work on a complex problem/question for an extended period of time. Projects are focused on student learning outcomes and may involve field work.

As we continue to leverage the excellence in management education in the country, JSB Ghaziabad is honoured to receive the highly prestigious and coveted Times Business Award 2023 for “Excellence in Management Education in Delhi/NCR”.  The Award is received by Prof. (Dr.) Tapan Kumar Nayak, Dean Academics from Renowned Actress and Padmashri Awardee Ms. Raveena Tandon at Hotel the Grand, New Delhi on April 14, 2023. This recognition reconfirms the value and efforts JSB put to educate the young management aspirants in particular and serving the society at large. JSB is committed to disseminate the values-based futuristic management education to all the aspirants in the country by following the core values of Jaipuria Group of Educational Institutions i.e. Empower, Enthuse, Excel.
