Nonpareil Pedagogy

We have nurtured one of the best learning environments at DSGS. The learning process at DSGS begins before the students enter the learning rooms and continues far beyond the institute. The rigorous yet flexible process focuses on combining clarity on the core concepts with the constraints of execution in a dynamic, globalized environment. The learning process includes experiential learning, workshops, case analysis, role plays, presentations, debates and discussions. The effort is supplemented by our “Corporate to Campus” effort where select Industry leaders are invited to interact with the students. As a student of DSGS, you will get a chance to interact with some of the best minds of the Indian Industry.

Business News Analysis (BNA)

To improve the reading and analytic skills of students and help them remain contemporary and relevant, DSGS conducts “Business News Analysis” sessions are conducted where they follow the significant news and developments on sectors of their choice and share their readings and understanding with their peers. The sessions are moderated by faculty members who further add to the perspective.

Business Immersion

Business Immersion makes students examine, analyze and evaluate complex process that challenges managers along the business cycle.

The program begins with the students doing a thorough, structured analysis of the major sectors of the Economy. Periodically, the students will present their understanding of the sectors to a panel of faculty and Industry leaders from the concerned sectors. The panel will guide the students and ensure that the learnings are maximized.

After the industry analysis, the students deep dive into the sector of their choice. In this process, the students get familiar with the regulatory guidelines, current industry best practices and emerging next practices. This is be done through both industry visits as well as interaction with a wide range of experts. On completion of this exercise, the students identify their role within the sector and study the pre requisites of excelling in the role. This includes close interaction with a few role models from the sector. The students learn the processes and rules that govern the operations of the chosen role, the skills and knowledge needed to excel.

Analytical and Critical Thinking – ACT

We have developed the ACT to help our students develop their ability to weigh alternatives, make decisions and evaluate seemingly contradictory facts. ACT is anchored in the necessity to inculcate the art of critically analyzing any issue and developing cogent and powerful arguments for and against any broad, multi disciplinary issues that face the nation, the society or the corporate.

This exercise aims to develop the following in our students:

  • Analytical writing skills
  • Strategic planning and data acquisition
  • Creative thinking
  • Asking the right questions
  • Logical reasoning

Broad based reading

The distinctive feature of our curriculum is the wider reading that the students have to do to prepare for the class – including the use of news paper, magazine articles, thought leadership pieces from journals and blogs in the class room to drive learning.

Thought Leadership Forum (TLF)

Great leaders are not born, but made. In keeping with this adage, students read, listen to and interact with leaders from the corporate world, who are invited to the campus to share their experiences of practicing leadership and achieving excellence in diverse domains.

Meet the Celebrity

This intervention aims at bringing accomplished writers and known personalities to the campus. Students get an opportunity to interact with these high achievers and learn during this process.

Entrepreneurship Development Cell (E-Cell)

The Entrepreneurship Development Cell of DSGS was set up in 2015. To promote entrepreneurship among the DSGS students and create an environment conducive for entrepreneurial activities.

The students get exposure to various professional courses like Student Entrepreneurship Development programme wherein professional experts help the students to make business plan and carry their ideas forward in the market. Because of such initiatives students become more confident in expressing their ideas and learn the talent of thinking out of the box.

Bringing Industry to classroom

We ensure to organize guests sessions in each subject under the academic curriculum of PGDM. These guest sessions are conducted by seasoned industry practitioners and are embedded into the regular lecture schedule. This sessions help the students relate the classroom learning to industry applications.

Bloomberg Financial Research & Analysis Lab

To provide extensive and up to date knowledge of financial research, RSET has installed twelve Bloomberg terminals for training in Algorithm based trading.

The Bloomberg Professional Service provides students with an additional tool that can enhance their class-room learnings, supercharge their job search and add a valuable skill to their resumes. With over 14,000 functions on the Bloomberg Professional Service, it is a powerful tool in researching and analyzing different areas of the finance industry.

Since industry uses Bloomberg extensively, there is a dire need for newly hired Under Graduates and MBA Graduates to have extensive workable knowledge of Bloomberg.

Most academic institutions do not impart Bloomberg training and hence the palpable skills gap between industry requirements and the academic training.

There has been a clear trend in forward-looking academic institutions to setup Bloomberg Labs and train students in Bloomberg.
