PEDAGOGY FOR JNTUH MBA
Case Analysis and Preparation:
Business Administration and Management can be well understood if cases are analyzed by
students and faculty in every class daily. This will enable MBA students develop communication skills and
give exposure to practical and live examples of how managers are taking decisions on different situations
they come across on a regular basis. In addition students should interact with company executives and
prepare case lets. This will help them understand the internal and external factors affecting an
organization’s growth and also understand the challenges of executives and the organization.
Student Presentations on Field Visits
Students should make a field visit to any small, medium or large organization or any
entrepreneur. They can also visit shops, petrol bunks, dealers, distributors, retailers, companies or their
branch offices in their nearby cities, towns and villages to understand their business model. They may
also offer to help the business organizations over a period of two years (as and when possible) and gain
the practical exposure. Presentation of their experiences during the field visits will enable them to
enhance their creativity towards solutions for the issues and challenges they observe during the field
visits.
Expert Lectures and Seminars
The faculty of the MBA departments should organize seminars and give opportunity for their
students to express their ideas. Faculty from the college or nearby colleges can be judges to evaluate
performance in the seminar presentations. Every faculty of marketing, finance, HR and Systems should
come together to conduct a two day seminar for each elective they teach and experts from the industry
and academia should be invited to share their ideas. College managements are requested to give their
full support in this regard.
Industrial Visits:
All the MBA students should plan and visit various organizations and observe the real life
situations and problems. This will enable them to understand how different strategies, policies and
approaches are implemented in different organizations.
Faculty as Facilitator:
There are several sources of cases available from books, business magazines like Business
Today, Business World etc., News Papers like Business Standard, Journals like HBR, Vikalpa etc. Even
soft copies of these cases are available in the internet. For example if we type business standard cases in
google we can see weekly cases along with solutions offered by the corporate executives. Faculty should
inspire students and act as a facilitator to motivate students to analyze cases in every class and also
encourage them to go for field visits.
College Academic Committee:
College is expected to constitute an academic committee Chaired by the MBA head and all
subject teachers to discuss case studies to be conducted in the class, reference material and session
plan to cover the syllabus. Cases / Assignments should be planned and circulated in advance to the
students.

ANY CASE FROM ANY SOURCE TO UNDERSTAND THE REALITIES OF THE INDUSTRY.
