    Research Proposal Presentation and Research
    As a requirement for the completion of the coursework within 5 semesters from the date of enrolment, all scholars shall submit their detailed research proposal for approval and will defend the same. On the approval of the research proposal, scholars will graduate to the research phase. The scholars are expected to undertake original research and contribute to the body of knowledge by discovery of new facts, by fresh interpretation of facts, theories, address real life management issues or research with real life applications. On completing all the requirements of presubmission and conducting a pre-submission presentation research scholars will submit the thesis within three months of the pre-submission presentation. All research scholars shall be required to publish (or receive acceptance for publication) atleast one research paper in a refereed National or International Journal and make two paper presentations in conferences/ seminars before presubmission presentation. Scholars may also publish their work as a book chapter in a refereed edited volume published by a reputed publisher.

    Learning Pedagogy and Assessments
    At SBPPSE, we strongly believe in learner centric teaching pedagogy with participative and collaborative approach. Learning is based on a mix of reflections from academic readings, activities, case studies, field visits and simulations. In order to develop higher order thinking abilities the programme encourage peer, self and active learning. Theoretical components are well complemented by practicum, and students are encouraged to apply classroom learning to various real life situations through field based projects. Readings in the form of research papers, articles and cases from various sources like books, journals, magazines, newspaper are prescribed. The students are encouraged to read, search supplementary readings and discuss in groups. Classroom discussions in research programme will focus on the inquiries the students will develop while reading. The inquiry mode of discussion will sharpen their thinking and research skills and help them come up with appropriate research questions. The purpose of assessment and evaluation at AUD is to facilitate and promote learning with understanding. Assessment in each course of study is continuous and is based on the 11-point grading system. Assessments in research programme will be through different assessment components including seminar presentations, group work, live projects, field work, reflective writings, review reports and presentations. The assessment methodology shall enable the participants to reflect on their learning and also help them in articulating the same. The programme (as per the SCR regulations) prescribes B as minimum passing grade for successful completion of each course during the coursework.

    Workshops
    Across the university several workshops and conferences are organised for research scholars to equip them with the supplementary skills required for the research such as proficiency of language, preparing the research proposal, academic writing and methodological skills. The workshops also provide a platform for researchers to exchange knowledge from diverse perspectives in social science domain and foster interdisciplinary research. The university has setup a specialised Centre, the Centre for Social Science Research Methods (CSSRM) to provide facilitate interdisciplinary research and provide research support to its scholars. As part of the PhD programme in Management a number of non-credit workshop courses are organised for scholars to furnish supplementary skills for research based on their research interests. The workshops are open to all the research scholars of the university.
