Praxis aims to produce "industry-ready" graduates equipped to meet global business needs. The B school provides high-quality management education through classroom training as well as intensive interaction and collaboration with the industry.
In order to ensure academic excellence, Praxis had sought academic inputs from XLRI. The nature of the collaboration included preparation of the curriculum and faculty exchange. A significant number of courses have been taught by eminent faculty from XLRI.
Infrastructure/ Teaching Facilities
A fully wired Praxis Business School campus comprises lecture theatres and classrooms in the academic block and single-room accommodation in the residential block. The hostel has a mess hall, a recreation room, gym and a night canteen. In additional to a well stocked physical library, students have access to online resources like EBSCO and CMIE databases.
Eighty percent of the knowledge and skill acquisition in a B-School happens, paradoxically, outside the classroom - at heated discussions in the cafeteria, while collaborating on group assignments, in the hostel rooms and of course in the library. Praxis extends this idea through KK - the Kollaborative Klassroom - an extension of the traditional learning environment into the digital domain. KK is a Web 2.0 based social network that allows students and faculty to interact and exchange thoughts and ideas in a manner and at a pace that they are comfortable with. KK can be accessed at http://kk.praxis.ac.in or through the Praxis Live link on the Praxis website.
The key strength of Praxis is the quality of its faculty. Praxis has opted for a mix of eminent faculty members drawn from both academia and industry. There is a strong resource-pool of visiting faculty, drawn from the academic and the corporate fields, both Indian and Global.
Members of the Praxis core team include:
