The current batch of HRM&LR students come from diverse backgrounds and elds.

The HRM&LR programme places importance on both theoretical and hands on learning. Conceptual clarity is enhanced through participation in classroom discussions, assignments, case study analysis, presentations, etc. while practical inputs are provided through the rigorous eld work system, subject related practical projects and the summer internships. The Foundation Courses help sensitize students to the social, political, economic and ecological environments of the society. All these, coupled with the focused attention that the students get owing to the small batch size, makes personal learning highly effective. The concurrent and block eldwork programme is an integral part of the curriculum and provides an opportunity for students to reect, apply and integrate acquired skills to work situations in eldwork organizations. It thereby serves as an interface between theory and practice.
