Discussion: Students must participate in regular classroom discussions as concepts are cleared and fresh perspectives are formed. 4. Testing and Writing Projects: Students will complete online tests for online courses and case studies for offline courses. 5.

Seminars: Students are expected to attend maximum number of seminars by guest faculty, weekly quizzes, as well as seminars conducted outside where Skyline students are sent.

Skill Enhancement
Many students generally display limited skill sets. It has been Skyline’s endeavour to maximise each student’s professional and social skills and prepare them for responsible positions at the place of work. Management games bring out those areas which need most attention, among them being communication (written, verbal and body language), personal presentations, ability to work in teams, leadership and qualities of tolerance. HR experts also give training by identifying attitudes as well as personal goals and drivers. In each semester, special emphasis is also laid on corporate requirements and ability to understand each incumbency, face competition and sustain positions, and an ability to stay updated in the changing environment and stay ahead in knowledge of the relevant work area. Mock interviews and group discussions are held/ conducted to test whether the students have been able to develop the skills that they initially lacked and later imbibed at the institute. Students are also encouraged to participate in inter-college events in areas of professional competence like business quizzes, paper presentations, business plans and advertising events. Students organise events on their own initiative and manage them with minimal support from the faculty. This develops their organisational skills while keeping the perspective of managing within budgets.



Social Projects
Giving back to society and social responsibility are areas which need to be part of every student’s orientation for inclusive growth.
