Specialized training is provided to students in the development of case studies and writing of articles and dissertations thereby helping them hone their skills in understanding and grasping the intricacies of the business environment.
A strong academic pedagogy focused on regular student-teacher interaction is one of the key differentiators of the Era Business School. EBS follows a complete 360-degree teaching methodology comprising industry-oriented course curriculum backed by a strong corporate interface. Trained by distinguished faculty drawn from both - academic and corporate backgrounds, students at EBS are provided extensive theoritical education on all aspects of their curriculum.

Armed with the mission to promote holistic development of students, the institute follows a high faculty student ratio of 1:10, with focused attention on promoting Andragogy-type methodologies with thrust on one-to-one interaction. Strong focus on the mentor-mentee relationship is thus a unique feature at EBS. This helps in comprehensive development of students where their concerns/issues are personally addressed by their mentor. Another notable feature of the course structure at EBS is summer internship whereby all students are required to utilize their summer break of study to undertake an 8 to 10 week practical training programme. During the internship, the student works under the guidance of a senior manager and EBS faculty to conclude the training with the submission of a report to the institute as well as the organization.

EBS follows global teaching practices embedded in practical training methodologies, which are rooted in the multi-faceted business systems of the ERA Group. This is a key nurturing force to help sharpen the skills of students in line with the constantly changing and perpetually evolving domestic and global market environments. The Corporate Resource Centre (CRC) at EBS arranges regular visits by CEOs and industry experts as guest lecturers. The interactive sessions ensuing from these visits help make education more relevant to the evolving business world. They further help prepare students to meet the challenges of the ever-changing business world. The CRC constantly communicates with the industry to bring quality summer training and final placements to the campus. These interactive methodologies are a key driver of the EBS growth strategy. The Management Development Programme (MDP) is another important concept to promote the corporate interface at EBS. The participants are empowered with modern tools, techniques and skills, straddling diverse spheres of management like Human Resource, Marketing, Finance, Management, Information Technology, Entrepreneurship International Business and Construction Project Management.

Global Perspective EBS has partnered with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore (ranked amongst Top 50 World University Rankings) for the Global Immersion Programme (GIP). This international immersion programme exposes the students to work practices in an environment different from those at home to further cross country understanding. It also helps them understand the macro-economic underpinnings, strengths and weaknesses of the host country from a governance and policy perspective.

PGDM Programme Post Graduate Diploma in Management Our Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) Programme builds on our strengths in research, consulting and pedagogy in the areas of Marketing, Finance, HR, General Managment and Construction Project Management. These programmes promote great participative approach to learning and necessitate rational commitment and collaboration at both personal and professional fronts. Through an action research approach, students are encouraged to ruminate and explore ideas through hands-on action-based experiments. We follow a transformative way of education in which students challenge and learn within a dynamic and tech-savvy environment. Throughout the next 24 months, students are challenged and encouraged to achieve greater results right from the beginning commencing with a ‘Bridge Programme’. Post this programme, a student’s mental and physical fitness is put to strenuous test with a three-day outbound training programme, usually conducted in the foothills of the Himalayas. The course curriculum at EBS is a tempting blend of in-depth subject knowledge and practical experience gained through a continuous process of industry academic interface. The students are given home assignments designed in such a way that they are required to apply their learning and reasoning ability to arrive at the solution. So, every attempt is made to utilize the practical knowledge of a student and the same is considered while evaluating a student’s performance through test, assignments, viva, observations, interaction, etc. Special focus is placed on ensuring students develop a well-rounded personality. Thus various personality and communication development programmes are provided to students on a regular basis to supplement their hard skills with soft ones. Students are trained to develop case studies and write research papers, articles, etc. which help them to not only develop practical knowledge and analytical ability but also enhance their skill level. These two years of the PGDM Programme will be a transformative experience for the students as they will not only learn from the traditional classroom teachings but also gain experience from our strong corporate interface within a tech-savvy and beyond-academic environment. 23
