Though the pedagogy at IICA and IIM Jammu varies course-wise but in majority of the courses, case studies are followed along with the theoretical underpinnings. Additionally, class presentations, simulation exercises, group or individual projects, business games, role plays and field visits, among others, are used. To integrate the classroom learning with the industry, the industry experts are invited to have discussions with the participants in many of the courses.
To make the learning process easy and effective, the classes are delivered in discussion modes. The participants are provided with the reading material in the form of articles, cases, book chapters beforehand. It is expected that the participants come prepared to the class and contribute significantly to the class discussions individually or in groups. This will be helpful for them to develop creative thinking, problem solving skills, idea integration with different perspectives, leadership qualities, and team work along with the joy of learning.
