The CAT-XL Learning Framework
The Program uses a CAT-XL (Concepts, Applications, Trends – Experiential Learning) framework to enhance the learning process. This framework emphasizes experiential learning and involves the application of management strategies and theories to real-world situations.

Given her/his duration of work experience, it is assumed that the learner already possesses sufficient Knowledge about the basic concepts of management. This learning framework will facilitate the learner to explore the application of these management concepts in multiple real life situations – through own workplace experiences and situations as well as the Course Material provided to her/him during the duration of the Program.

Experiential learning is a process whereby knowledge is created through transformation of experience. Knowledge results from the process of grasping and transforming experience.

Course Material
Each of the 20 courses listed, will be supported by multiple learning inputs which will vary from types of Courses and will range from

• Brief concept notes on specific knowledge areas in the form of books.
• World-class case studies covering real corporate situations and the academic theory supporting there solution and management of those situations.
• Classics / Contemporary books in the field of management-written by experts at the cutting edge of management thinking and practices.
• Harvard Business Review management periodicals containing best in class writings on latest developments and case studies.

The program aims to leverage the rich working experience of the students who are senior executives so as to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making thus help them become effective senior managers.

Learning in this program is enhanced by real-time interaction of students with peer groups guided by timely interventions by experienced faculty members of the university acting as facilitators.

Case studies included in the program cover both functional and applied concepts. Though theoretical aspects of management are available in standard textbooks, true value can only be achieved by analyzing the case studies. True learning experience only comes with understanding how the case scenario engages around concept/s and/or deviates from the concept/s as per the dictates of the context. Summation of engagement and deviation from the concept with appropriate justification leads to value-adding analysis of the case.

The program includes a set of international business best sellers that offer perspectives into various areas of management. Students develop understanding and appreciation of author’s viewpoint on broad based aspects of management by perusing these best sellers. This helps in consolidating student’s theoretical knowledge and help in linking this knowledge to schools of thought prescribed to by different authors, eventually triggering understanding and possible variations/deviations around concepts.

HBR journal as a courseware is unique and value adding inclusion in the program. Linking of the inputs from HBR articles and cases to organizational and business problems provides real-time value and help in finding effective solutions to contemporary workplace issues. This helps the student become an effective and value-focused manager.
