Outcome-based Education @JSB
The outcome-based approach to designing courses at JSB intends to make the expectations more transparent for students, any regulatory or accrediting body and all stakeholders. Instead of the instructor deciding the syllabus, this approach starts with a specification of what the student is expected to achieve by the end of the program/course.
These learning outcomes could be knowledge acquisition, mastery of skills, or development of attitude or ability. These outcomes will be specified in publicly shared statements in a clear way, along with the assessment criteria by which they will be measured. The programme is then written; complete with assessments designed to test the criteria in a way that it facilitates students to work towards achieving the stated outcomes.
The PGDM Programme has clearly defined Program Outcomes which have been carefully drafted to ensure that they include subject-specific skills and generic skills, including transferable global skills and competencies. The Programme Outcomes (POs) focus on knowledge and skills that prepare students for further study, employment and citizenship.
Within the framework of Outcome-based Education, the three most important learning methods used by JSB faculty are:
Case Based Learning (CBL) is generally a decision-making or problem-solving exercise. The actual data and information of an organization are given to students along with information about the decision-makers and others. Students are then required to identify the issues or problems and analyze the given information to solve the problem and make a recommendation. In CBL, students are highly involved in classroom learning.
Problem Based Learning (PBL) is an unstructured or semi-structured real-world problem. Unlike the case studies where information is already available, students take the responsibility of identifying the problem, getting essential information, resources, etc., and thus the learning takes place. Teachers and even participants themselves become facilitators/mentors/guides.
Project Based Learning requires students to work on a complex problem/question for an extended period of time. Projects are focused on student learning outcomes and may involve field work.
As we continue to leverage the excellence in management education in the country, JSB Ghaziabad is honoured to receive the highly prestigious and coveted Times Business Award 2023 for "Excellence in Management Education in Delhi/NCR". The Award is received by Prof. (Dr.) Tapan Kumar Nayak, Dean Academics from Renowned Actress and Padmashri Awardee Raveena Tandon at Hotel the Grand, New Delhi on April 14, 2023.

JSB is committed to disseminate the values-based futuristic management education to all the aspirants in the country by following the core values of Jaipuria Group of Educational Institutions i.e. Empower, Enthuse, Excel.
