This offers the students a wide spectrum of choice with ample scope. The classroom package consists of fundamental courses, core and integrative courses and specialization courses. The teaching methodology is not only the whiteboard based but audio visual aids of teaching concurrent with modern teachings are in vogue in our classrooms.

There are regular guest lectures by visiting dignitaries. Regular frequent use of audio-visual aids is a distinct feature of the Institute.

Attendance, Evaluation and Grading

Each class session is of one hour duration. A student must have at least 75 per cent attendance in each course in order to be allowed to appear for the examination in the respective course. In order to inculcate organizational discipline among the students and to make the learning process more effective, attendance has been made mandatory.

The evaluation process by the faculty is continuous, varied and rigorous. Performance of the students in each course is evaluated through various means such as class participation, quiz programmes, seminars, home assignments, group discussions, case presentations, tests, projects and final comprehensive examination. There is a provision of 30 per cent marks in each subject. In campus conduct of the student, overall discipline, leadership and communication skill, organizational abilities etc. of the student is also evaluated. A separate committee nominated by the President keeps a close vigil on each student and also interacts with each faculty member before awarding the above marks to the students. This arrangement has been evolved based on the needs expressed by the organizations visiting the campus.

The maximum marks allotted to each course are 100. This is distributed between examination and non-examination components in a ratio of 70:30. The practical component comprises seminars, case analysis, panel discussions, and power point presentations and Viva-Voce.

On the basis of total marks obtained by the student in each course, letter grades are determined using statistical methods and these grades represent the final award for the respective course. At IRM, Jodhpur the following system is in operation.

In each course the student is awarded a letter grade, the weighted average for all the courses taken by a student in the programme is called the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). A student needs to secure a minimum of D-Grade in each Semester to be promoted. The minimum CGPA should be 4.0 on a 10 point scale.
