IBS believes in student-centered learning. IBS uses learning outcomes which focus attention on explicit and detailed statements of what students learn: the skills, understanding and abilities students seek to develop in them and then test. IBS then uses rubrics to assess the learning.
Rubrics are tools to assist in the measurement process. Rubrics define the various levels of each of the components of learning in a measurable way. Rubrics assist both the student and the faculty to clearly identify the level to which the outcome has been achieved. IBS uses rubrics for assessing the soft skills and summer internships for its management programs.
