How ADMAP unfolds
ADMAP is a three credit course spread through the first year of the two year MBA curriculum. It has a learned rather than a taught pedagogy and it transfers the learning responsibility to the students.
To do this, ADMAP’s course architecture moves over four distinct yet contributing areas. The process starts with an introduction to a well thought and etched out ‘theoretical framework’ of administration. This is done to make the linkages between the macro of management to the micro of administration clear. ADMAP then assigns students into committees which provide support in getting the institute’s administrative work done.
The committee work augments the Institute's administrative capacities, the outcome of which is a low student to staff ratio. The benefits to students are the access to real time situations in which they learn to prioritise, delegate, manage time and make decisions. The ‘getting work done' objective meets the 'getting along with others’ through fortnightly committee interactions.
ADMAP learning is further supported by workshops, leading to a reflective journal which records the participants' year long learning.
