Accelerator Programme

Curriculum

The Rashtram Accelerator curriculum takes you on this journey from leading yourself to leading others. The curriculum is a mix of Common-Core Courses, Track-Specific Courses and Electives. The Programme also has two project periods, each six-week, that will help the Learner understand ground-realities and get on-field experience.

  • Common CoreThis is the common core which is the foundation for all the learners and which seeks to bind the learner with the learning process
  • Track SpecificThis part is curated to provide the learners with the skills specific to their track – combined with rich reflection, field experiences and research projects helps students translate their skills into competencies.
  • ElectivesThis part is to help the Learner sharpen skills with a wide range of choice.

Academic Calendar

  • The one-year course is organised into 3 terms. Each term would be about twelve to fifteen weeks and will be a mix of classroom teaching, case studies, group discussions and presentations, fieldwork, internships, research publications and representation in seminars/conferences.
  • The basic unit of classroom content is a module and not more than 3 modules make up a course. Each module would be about 20 hours of classroom teaching and would not extend beyond a week.
  • Term 1 is the common core which is the foundation course for all three tracks
