grassroot level projects and prepare to give back to society, so that an Individual’s growth is not
counterproductive to society needs, and growth is all inclusive.
The range of learning outcomes achieved by students on the programme will vary according to their
Award. As students progress towards their final levels of study, they will be expected to demonstrate
an increasingly sophisticated level of understanding, analysis and evidence of the synthesis of theory

Throughout the individual programmes, assessment methods at Skyline Business School are
designed to enable students to develop their own potential and permit a close working relationship
between the learning experience and individual assessment.
Aim of Assessment
The aim of the assessment is to test whether the student has achieved the stated learning outcomes
for the Programme as a whole and the specific unit in particular.
The assessment of the course is governed by a number of principles:
With the exception of the independent study, all units are normally assessed by a combination
of course work, assessment and formal examination weighted in each unit generally at 50:50
though it may be changed from time to time and from course to course;
Each course work incorporates periodic tests, which will be part of the written unit and therefore,
prescribed at its commencement; each unit will also include deadlines for the presentation of
the course work;
The Independent Study must be in an area that is relevant to the named Award.

60 - 69 B 3 Good

Those students attaining grade ‘D’ or ‘F’ are given an opportunity to improve their grade within

This grading policy may differ between courses.
Typical assessment and attendance criteria may be as shown here under.
Sr. No. Break-up of Weightage Description
1. Attendance 10% * Total classes attended shall add upto 10% marks
2. Presentation/Case Study 10% Subject specific at the discretion of the faculty
3. Internal Examination 1 15% Eg: If a student scores 80 in a 100 marks paper, it would add
80% of 15 marks i.e. 12 marks to the final score

The weightage given to each component may vary from course to course.

Relevance of Academic Information and Grading Policy
A student’s final course grade will be determined by consideration of the following factors:
1. Attendance: 75% attendance is compulsory for all classes. This facilitates interaction with
the instructor and fellow students as highest level of learning is achieved by this method.
Students who do not have the requisite 75% attendance in each paper are barred from the
final examination of that unit.
2. Reading: Every student is expected to have thoroughly read and reviewed all reading
assignments from the required text or other reference material.
3. Discussion: Students must participate in regular classroom discussions as concepts are cleared
and fresh perspectives are formed.
4. Testing and Writing Projects: Students will complete online tests for online courses and case
studies for offline courses.
5. Assignments: Students complete group and individual assignments for the course. Group
projects inculiate team spirit.
6. Seminars: Students are expected to attend maximum number of seminars by guest faculty,
weekly quizzes, as well as seminars conducted outside where Skyline students are sent.
Attendance in external seminars attracts bonus points. All of these methods help students in
maximising their learning, particularly as they are able to see direct linkages between theory
Many students generally display limited skill sets. It has been Skyline’s endeavour to maximise
each student’s professional & social skills and prepare them for responsible positions at the place
of work. Management games bring out those areas which need most attention, among them being
communication (written, verbal and body language), personal presentations, ability to work in
teams, leadership & qualities of tolerance. HR experts also give training by identifying attitudes
as well as personal goals and drivers. In each semester special emphasis is also laid on corporate
requirements and ability to understand each incumbency, face competition and sustain positions,
as well as the ability to stay updated in the changing environment and stay ahead in knowledge
of the relevant work area.
Mock interviews and group discussions are held / conducted to test whether the students have
been able to develop the skills they initially lacked. Students are also encouraged to participate in
inter college events on areas of professional competence like business quizzes, paper presentations,
business plans and advertising events.
The summer training performance appraisal indicates the personal growth and development after
one year. Student are engaged with leading corporates for live projects.
Academic & Cultural Committees and Groups

nominated to any of the following committees:
Trade Expos and promotional activities Committee;
Newsletter and Webpage Committee;
Seminar and Business Quiz Committee;
Excursions and Outstation trips Committee;
Industry Seminar Committee;
Cultural and Event Management Committee;
Student Affairs Committee.
Trips and Excursions
To provide relief from the strenuous course requirements students are encouraged to go on trips
and excursions organised jointly by the students and the Institute. These trips also help in creating
closer bonds between students and faculty and between peer groups.
Apart from cultivating organisational capabilities in students, these activities provide a practical
educational experience and develop other soft skills such as sporting spirit, discipline, behavioural
norms and group dynamics. In the past students have been to:
