The lectures will be delivered by eminent faculty from IIM Kozhikode.
The approach combines live lectures, application exercises with hands-on practice for some sessions and instrumented feedback with a strong emphasis on concepts and theory.

The sessions will be delivered from IIM Kozhikode studio on TPL technology platform to participants who would be attending from their respective places via their device (Laptop/Tablet).

Assessment & Certification

A minimum of 75% attendance to the LIVE lectures is a prerequisite for the successful completion of this programme. There are periodic evaluations built in throughout the duration of the program. These maybe in the form of a quiz, assignment, project, case studies or other objective/subjective assessments.

The main objective of such assignments/projects will be to help the participants apply their conceptual learning in the programme to actual organizational decision scenarios. The participants will have to secure the minimum pass marks in the respective evaluation components

Participants who successfully complete the same and satisfy the requisite attendance criteria, will be awarded with a Certificate of Completion from IIM Kozhikode. Participants who are unable to clear the evaluation criteria but have the requisite attendance will be awarded with a Participation Certificate from IIM Kozhikode.
