The Indian School of Business (ISB) has launched a comprehensive curriculum review for its Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) in response to the ever-changing business landscape.

The new curriculum, according to an ISB statement, has a three-pronged focus. One of these focuses is a shift towards a more customized and adaptable programme structure, given the different needs of the students, who come from a variety of backgrounds, including engineering, the armed services, art, and sports.

Learnability is the second pillar that goes along with it since the school will now employ more activity-based teaching strategies that foster lifelong learning. The curriculum’s integrated renewal mechanism, which enables it to proactively address future demands, is the third essential component.

Changes will be implemented gradually, according to ISB. The newly established Center for Learning and Teaching Excellence will be essential to the implementation of the updated curriculum, which places a strong emphasis on individualized and experiential learning opportunities. It will encourage ongoing development of curriculum design and content.

PGP students can now use an extended range of elective credits to make up up to 60% of the degree. There are now only 14 core credits, four of which can be selected from a longer list.

The school has prioritized improving its analytics program to meet the needs of the data-driven corporate environment of today. New courses on cutting-edge technologies would be among them. Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are examples of elective courses.

The school has reconfigured the structure to allow for advances in the one-year program. Four “block weeks” are now included in place of the previous six-week terms, which allowed for the inclusion of a range of shorter courses in between the regular terms.

Additionally, via initiatives like industry-sponsored projects and field immersions, ISB’s Office of Experiential Learning will provide immersive experiences that connect theory with practice. This all-encompassing strategy is in line with major worldwide trends and is based on an extensive analysis of the educational environment conducted by ISB.
