Teaching Approach & Pedagogy
The MBM program is based on the student centered learning approach. The general teaching methodology of the program includes interactive lectures, students' presentations, case studies, and projects. Various activities to suit a particular course for example remedial classes, seminars, and library based research, self and collaborative study, presentations and discussions, study tours and project works are most widely adopted.
Use of Modern Teaching Aids
Teaching and learning at SDC is virtually supported by and equipped with modern digital technology.
Seminars and Group Discussions
Students are made to involve in various assignments like group discussions, presentations and other exercises in related issues of business, administration, development and other sectoral issues. They are encouraged to work in teams to undertake project works, case analysis and article reviews. Experts and professionals share their expertise and experiences in periodically organized seminars and guest lectures.
SDC encourages students to be active in knowledge creation, innovation and dissemination through case development, analysis and presentations. Both local and global cases are assigned for discussions, written analysis and presentation. Concerned faculties work as resource persons and extend necessary guidance, supervision and mentoring in their tasks and ensure quality, creativity and accomplishment.
Industrial, social visits and excursions
SDC has made efforts to develop close nexus with the business, corporate and the practical world. MOU with Nepal Chamber of Commerce is an illustration to it. SDC provides opportunities to students to visit, observe and study organizations to provide real life practical exposure and further acquaint them with the business practices and the culture. Besides, opportunities are also extended for social visits including in remote parts of Nepal to immerse them in the reality of Nepalese livelihood, economy, opportunities and challenges.
Interactive Learning and Presentations
Presentation is a teaching pedagogy used by SDC. Faculties assign tasks and issues in a participatory way to align with students’ interest to conduct research, develop power points and present. These become part of students’ evaluation.
Students at SDC are involved in different research works on various issues. The research works comprise thesis writing and project work which are mandatory.
Though internship is not mandatory in MBM programme, SDC encourages students to engage in internship to gain useful experiential learning in order to enable them to acquire practical and professional exposure. The MOU with Nepal Chamber provides a few internship seats for SDC students and the campus also avails similar other opportunities.
The MBM program is an intensive professional program. This program demands a very high level of commitment from students. Students are required to attend regularly in all classes and presentations as required by the course. Students failing to attend 70% of classes will not be allowed to appear in the semester end examinations.
