Academic input is delivered through two types of courses: core courses and elective courses. Core courses (Term 1 to 3) are compulsory for all participants. They provide participants with the fundamental conceptual knowledge, analytical skills and techniques, contextual understanding, environmental awareness and overall perspective, which serve as the base for the programme.

Through active classroom discussions, the faculty walks the participants through possible solutions and possible decision frameworks while bringing out the related theories.
In the final term of the programme, participants will be required to write a business case under the mentorship of a faculty member, based on real-life situations involving real people, in real organizations and with real data.
