  2. 2. From the Director’s Desk We had embarked on a mission fifteen years back, when we started Skyline Business School. It was to create a world class learning environment, which prepares young managers to cope up with ever increasing challenges of competitive world, which develops their versatility to adapt seamlessly in a multi cultural global environment, which trains them to be equally comfortable in a state-of- the-art as well as rustic environment, which nurtures their leadership traits to shoulder increasing responsibilities, which encourages them to analyse every difficult situation objectively, and which imbibes in them to keep their core values and ethics intact in all situations. We have great sense of satisfaction in what has been accomplished till now, when we see industry seeking our students for placements and projects throughout the year, and, when we see various surveys consistently validating our improved standings year after year. Never the less the journey to stay ahead has only begun. At Skyline we prepare you for the challenges of the new world.

  7. 7. Assessment 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. Principles 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. Grading Policy Marks Grade Grade Point Description 70 or above A 4 Very Good 60 - 69 B 3 Good 50 - 59 C 2 Average 40 - 49 D 1 Pass Below 40 F 0 Fail Those students attaining grade ‘D’ or ‘F’ are given an opportunity to improve their grade within a stipulated period of time. This grading policy may differ between courses. 8
  8. 8. Assessment Weightage Typical assessment and attendance criteria may be as shown here under. Sr. No. Break-up of Weightage Description Evaluation Criteria 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 4. Internal Examination 2 15% Eg: If a student scores 20 in a 50 marks paper, it would add 40% of 15 marks i.e. 6 marks to the final score Total of Internal 50% This is the sum-total of all the internal assessments Assessment Class Interaction 5% To the discretion of the faculty wherever necessary from 2 to 4 5. Final Examination (External) 50% Eg: If a student scores 50 in a 100 marks paper, it would add 50% of 50 marks i.e.25 marks to the final scores Total 100% This is the sum-total of all the internal plus external assessments * Activity a student can use this to add 5 participation marks to the total of his/her internal assessment results if he/she has 100% activity participation and has interacted in the classes satisfactorily. Not available to students failing in the internal evaluation i.e. scoring less than 25 out of 50 The weightage given to each component may vary from course to course. University examinations are conducted separately and degree is awarded by the University. 9
  9. 9. 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 and practice. 10
  10. 10. Skill Enhancement 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. 11
  11. 11. Academic & Cultural Committees and Groups Students take part in organising several academic and non academic activities and can opt for or be nominated to any of the following committees: Placement Committee; Trade Expos and promotional activities Committee; Sports 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: Sharjah / Dubai for Inter Ropeway Adventure sports in College Cricket Matches Rajasthan Dubai Shopping Experience Dam Dama Lake River Rafting Jungle Safari Desert Safari Kulu Manali - Hill experience Neemrana and Austrian Nanital and Jim Corbett Park List of Fetes/special student functions in 2009 Freshers Get together Outstation Trip Orientation week Two day trip for Tourism students to Festival Man Zeal The Resort and Neemrana Cricket Match TV Talk shows participation Football Match Farewell Evening 12
