Among our talented faculty, we have academic scholars, experts who advise top corporations, the authors of important texts in business and economics and researchers who develop fresh approaches in labor relations, information technology, human resources and many other fields.

All Round Education
Our curriculum has been designed with a view to provide an all-round comprehensive education to our students. Our programs would have a significant share of liberal arts courses that aim at widening their horizons of knowledge and cognizance. A significant portion of the curriculum implemented at Chitkara relies on exposing you to an array of real world situations outside the classroom. These not only include exciting team projects but also direct interfacing with the end users of your solution.

The Case Method Teaching Pedagogy
Effective management requires decisions based on contextual analysis and insights. To stimulate the intellect and enhance intellectual capabilities the case method of learning is used. Case discussions are supplemented with lectures, seminars, games, role plays, industrial visits and group exercises. The case method is utilized to develop skills needed for problem solving, decision- making and implementation. Application of theoretical knowledge to real-life problems is tested through this pedagogy. The emphasis is on developing a holistic perspective that deals with unstructured situations and imparting skills in decision making under uncertainty. Cases are tailored to encourage a vibrant interplay of ideas and their practical application and expose students to both leading edge research and current practice. Cases are reviewed every year to reflect current managerial practices and trends.

Group Projects
Working with talented and accomplished peers provides a unique opportunity for accelerated professional and personal growth. Group projects, a major component of most courses, help students develop and refine skills in the management of diverse groups. The groups are formed from pools of varied disciplines, backgrounds, corporate experience and career orientations to leverage on and improve the enormous diversity in perspectives.
