Designed with inputs and insights from experts in higher education, management practice, liberal arts and women's studies, Vedica's curriculum offers a unique and unparalleled selection of skills and values to prepare Scholars for a successful career.
The four converging tracks that define the Programme are:
Mastering Management Practice
The curriculum in the management track consists of a wide range of fundamental business topics that equip you for a career in the government and development sectors and entrepreneurial ventures. The Vedica curriculum strives for managerial excellence in its Scholars by focusing on this essential core of a robust management education.
Learning from the Liberal Arts
Can one make the right choices for their organisation without understanding the economics, politics and sociology of the Workplace? What sets a Vedica Scholar apart from her peers? Top-rated enterprises and recruiters are looking for employees who bring perspective, diversity and an 'out-of-the-box' approach to problem-solving, which this track assures for our Scholars.
Thinking & Communicating for Impact
Persuasion and clarity in communication form the bedrock for success. Thinking critically and communicating effectively are amongst the most sought-after attributes in a potential employee. Vedica Scholars outshine their peers through their training in Professional Communication.
Taking Charge of Personal Growth
At Vedica, we believe that a woman must be her best not just in the world, but also for the world. She must see her own personal growth as her responsibility. The Personal Growth track at Vedica offers Scholars a platform to introspect and grow not just as a professional, but as an individual.
Who you learn from is important
Vedica invites prominent academics and industry practitioners from around the world to teach and mentor at the Programme. To bolster the overall learning experience, Scholars are consistently exposed to guest interactions with prominent business leaders, diplomats, entrepreneurs and artists. Innovative pedagogies and industry experience of the faculty—coupled with our guest lectures—come together to tailor a robust learning journey for each Scholar.
