Teaching Methodology & Study Package
IIF adopts a unique teaching methodology. IIF supplies study package containing high quality relevant text books/ IIF publications and study notes on each subject in the beginning of each semester. IIF mails a study plan mentioning the dates on which the additional communications and test set modules will be sent. IIF sends test questions containing - true/false questions, multiple choice questions, short answer questions, long answer questions and case studies, every fortnight, which may be attempted by a candidate and sent back to the IIF for evaluation. IIF returns the evaluated test questions to candidates. IIF sends the case studies for being attempted by candidates. The cases are representative of actual managerial problems which occur at various business environments. The case analysis method demands students to make decisions, develop, implementation of plans and explain, and defend their actions via discussions or written presentation. These studies develop the talent and confidence to face the real world problems. All the case studies after evaluation are returned back to the candidates.The candidates progress is monitored and feedback is obtained from time to time during the semester.

Evaluation System
The evaluation system in the Institute is continuous and rigorous. The system is expected to motivate the students towards excellence through continuously monitoring their performance and providing them timely feedback. A student is evaluated on the basis of class participation, quizzes, corporate interaction, home/class assignments, presentation, managerial experience (inhouse training), industrial trainings, mid-term and final examinations.

Examination Scheme
IIF follows a unique open book examination system. The question papers are sent to the candidates by registered post. They are expected to attempt in one sitting and return the answer books within one week by registered post. However, if one is unable to send the answer papers within one week, the student may submit the answer papers in subsequent weeks. There is a graded penalty for late submission.
