Internship with salary is one of the concepts of the Post‐Graduate Program. It is similar to “learning from the field”. In the process, students get a feel of organizational reality: what it is, how it works, and the relationship between diverse functions. Students can relate classroom teaching to pprox. tional life. To that extent, the so‐called gap between theory and reality is bridged.


According to the Indian higher education system,

  • Two semesters of five to six months in duration, versus academic terms spread over 10 to 12 months.
  • Credits based on the workload of the learner, with one credit point generally corresponding to 30 to 40 learning hours.
  • Comprehensive continuous assessment (versus end-of-year examinations).
  • New assessment protocols based on grades rather than marks, and the use of cumulative grade point scores to define overall achievement.
  • Curricular flexibility and increased options for student mobility.
  • Regular updates to curriculum.

Under the guidelines of the RUSA reform initiatives, the LGA semester includes a minimum of 90 teaching days spread over 18 weeks, with clear definitions on the duration of instruction, assessment, and end-of-semester examinations for evaluation. LGA follows RUSA instructional methodology, with a reduced emphasis on lecturing and increased opportunity for student interaction. Instruction is divided into three components: Lecture, Tutorial, Practical (lab, fieldwork, case studies) (LTP), with credits weighted for each component based on hourly contact per week.
