Since 2018, Calcutta Business School has launched a concept called Preparatory Classes before formal Orientation in July for about two weeks in June, to give its PGDM Program students a heads up on the main program. These classes were started with the objective of acclimatizing students with basics of logical sense, mathematical abilities, various facets of management education and communication skills. ‘Preparatory Program’ would help students in getting a preview of the pedagogy at CBS which emphasizes on case study method, group work, project activity and experiential learning. The topics covered in these classes include mathematics, statistics, soft skills, English Communication for Managers, etc., so that they are able to understand the essence of the courses to be covered in the PGDM Programme.
