The curriculum development is a team process. The team makes a systematic decision on the learner’s characteristics, indented outcomes, content, methods and evaluation strategies. Each step in the curriculum development process builds on the previous step to provide systematic approach. The curriculum development process systematically organizes what will be taught, who will be taught, and how it will be taught. Always, there are new ways to put things together in s little different way, to be more systematic or to adjust and adopt new situations. We borrowed ideas, from various sources on the concepts for Curriculum Development, progress planning, evaluation and training.

Experiential learning provides an opportunity for active/interactive learning experiences in-class as well outside the classroom environment. With such real time learning activities, students can better identify their prospective areas of work in the overall organizational functions.
CIMAT largely adopts experiential learning such as Industrial Visits, Field Visits and Real Time Trading Program (RTTP) as a value-added learning method for management students. Learning from textbooks, lectures and other study material does not suffice for holistic learning. Practical, hands-on learning is essential for better understanding of work processes and business functions. Such visits and real time programs give greater clarity about important management concepts, as students practically experience how these concepts are put into action. Students pursuing functional specializations in Marketing/ Finance/ Operations/ HR/ Analytics and Entrepreneurship help them gain hands-on experience of how industry operations are executed.
