OUR APPROACH

At Eruditus, one of our focus areas is how to create and provide relevant programs that don’t just help you with ‘what is’, but also prepares you for ‘what could be’.
This encompasses a comprehensive framework required to deal with inherent business challenges.

We know

  • Not just content, the method is important too

    Our programs are created using a broad spectrum of learning methods and modules, all put together to adapt around your busy schedules and work commitments. Along with this, emphasis is also put on how you learn. Learning through actual classroom interactions, online sessions, case studies, real-time simulations and practical exercises push you right in the face of dealing with challenges. Our programs would encourage you to ask relevant questions, provoke strategic thinking and debate with peers – skills that you could put to use even in your every day office environment.

  • How teaching does matter

    Eruditus collaborates with some of the best business schools and faculty who provide a complete 360-degree learning experience. They don’t just teach the latest innovations required for business, but also design innovative courses that are relevant in the current professional scenario.

  • Customized programs are required

    Every company’s needs are unique. Every academic institution’s objectives are different. We not only recognize this, we embrace this. Spending a lot of time, pre-programme, to understand the unique needs our partners is a cornerstone to the Eruditus approach. For this, we constantly work to design and bring you programs in a range of formats, such as short-term workshops, classes that last a few weeks or months, online sessions or complete modular programs. All programs are designed around what participants require in terms of curriculum, time available and affordability.

  • Long-term relationship

    Most of our partners have conducted follow-on learning sessions with us. Our commitment to our partners goes beyond just a learning intervention. We take a keen interest in meeting the company’s or education institutions long term objectives.
