mMBA State 2011

 

Introduction: mMBA State 2011 is designed with new concepts of rolling batches where a student can enter into a batch at any point of time with some standard constraints. The module structure is designed to meet the rolling concept. Read the following points carefully to understand the new structure:

 

·          Each session is of 90 minutes duration.

·          Nomenclature of subjects is as follows:

o         Quantitative Aptitude (QA)

o         Verbal Ability (VA)

o         DI and LR (DI & LR)

o         Personal Development (PD)

·          Nomenclature of courseware is also changed as follows:

o         Reference Books (The Theory material)

o         Concepts (The session material)

o         ST will be called as Self Section Test (SST).

o         SST will be called as CST (State)

o         Concepts, Word list, Word Miscellany, FLT, Builder will remain same.

·          The macro structure is similar to previous year i.e. Thrust module will be followed by Accelerate, Propel, mSuccess and CGB module.

·          Each Module is a rolling module i.e. each module is a set of ‘n’ weeks. Each week will have a certain learning objective independent to other weeks. Students will be admitted in a module at the start of any week. After completing n weeks he will be shifted to next modules. Let’s say a module is having 10 week structure. A student who will join the module in week 1 will end at week 10, a students joining in week 2 will study till week 10 and leave the module after week 1, a students who will join in week 5 will study week 5, week 6 , 7, .. , 10, 1 ,2.. , week 4 and will be shifted to next module after week 4.

·          PD sessions will be planned every alternate Sundays i.e on I and III and will have a standard structure on all Sundays (Refer following pages for details). All fourth and fifth Sundays can be kept off or can be used for session adjustment.

·          SAT will be planned on every second Sunday and will also have a standard structure.

·          PCSs will be planned in Thrust, Propel and mSuccess. A PCS week will be planned every month. The point of PCS will be two months after a student joins Thrust, after TTT in Propel and after Understanding Interview in mSuccess.

·          Induction modules will be inserted before some of the modules to handle one/two issues:

o         In the concept of rolling batch if there is a need to explain some necessary concepts to the students then those concepts could be covered in induction module.

o         The material which are distributed only once i.e. not related to sessions like courseware of thrust,  accelerate etc. will be delivered in induction modules

·          Induction module of mMBA state will have a five session structure.

·          “Thrust MST” module of mMBA State will have a 18 week structure.

·          Propel will have three parts as follows:

o         A three week rolling module including CSTs and TTT.

o         A test series including FLTs, other TTT and B school sessions etc.

·          Structure of mSuccess, CGB  will be decided later

·          For detailed structure refer rest of the document and Structures in NERVE.

·          Test series will start from April 2010 and run till Feb 2011. The design of test series will be finalized in last week of February.

·          Support to sharp batches will remain like last year (or may be reconsidered in May)

o         Builders will be planned for Rest of the batches

Students joining the course of mMBA state 2011 will start their preparation from the Induction module. Since the larger structure of Thrust MST is rolling in nature, the induction module is designed in such a fashion that the necessary and general thing could be covered initially. The material required for Thrust MST as well as Induction will be distributed in the first session of  the Induction module

·            Personal Counseling Sessions (PCS)

 

mMBA-Intro: This is the first session of the induction module. Here we cover Introduction to CH EdgeMakers, Introduction to the product, Teaching Methodology, CH Edgemakers-Infrastructure and some general terminologies

 

Concepts are session material designed to be discussed in the session. Every concept will contain 20 to 30 questions based on certain topics. Concepts Exercise are designed to give lot of practice of particular variety of question to students.

 

PD sessions: These sessions are conducted on Sundays. The larger aim is to improve the students on awareness and communication part.

 

Personal Counseling Session (PCS): PCS is aimed to give students inputs on their performance and to handle their problems related to mMBA. The PCS is conducted thrice in the course i.e in Thrust MST. Propel and mSuccess.

Identification of sharper lot of students.

 

This identification is done by the batch faculties. This job could be done in a structured way. For this task following steps should be followed.

 

Step I :A table should be created in the format shown below:

 

S. No.

Reg No.

Name

Discipline

Percentage in

Grads given by Faculty

 

 

 

Grad

12th

10th

QA

DILR

VA

PD

Veto

Total A+

Total A+ (Out of QA/ DI/LR/ VA)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step II: All the faculty of the batch should grade every student as A+ / A / B / C. If a faculty feels that some particular student must be selected to sharper batch He/She can give a veto to that student i.e. in the veto column faculty should sign. Here HODs must explain the definition of A+ / A / B / C to the entire team as per the following table:

 

 

Grade

Objective parameter (%ile in MAT)

A+

He Can Score more than 95

A

He can score in the range of 85 to 95

B

He can score  in the range of 70 to 85

C

He can not score more than 70

 

Step III : Now operations should collect such sheets from all the batches and select some students for sharper batch. Selection criteria are as follows:

 

1.       First set of student should be made by the students getting 4 A+ and Veto

2.       Then second set of students should be selected who get 3 A+ in MA, IRA and VCA.

3.       The third set should be identified with 2 A+ in any of the two out of MA, IRA and VCA and A+ in PD or 1 or 2 A in rest of the two subjects.

4.       Fourth and last set could be formed with the students getting 2 A+ in any of the two areas and 1 or 2 A in rest of the subjects.

 

Now the batch / Batches should be formed by keeping in mind the priority in the order of first to fourth set. Now the decision lies on Academic and operations team of centers about the optimum number of batches.
