Creating exceptional graduates with ability and desire to lead Nepal into the future is a tall order by any standard. We take this charge very seriously and believe that only individuals who have the right combination of skills and attitude will fit this bill. It has been therefore our approach to expose our students to the best business practices, and instill in them a sense of responsibility, tenacity and integrity.
We encourage our students to see the world in the way they choose and take actions that they feel will contribute towards its improvement. We make them realize that there are no ‘guarantees’ in life, but if they work hard and smart, they can achieve the in-achievable. Therefore, we educate our students to create value for their organizations and their communities.
We teach students to hold high integrity and moral judgment. We motivate our graduates to be audacious, to own the consequences of their actions and decisions, and to stand firm in the face of insurmountable obstacles. After all, our purpose is to create leaders who embrace change; who don’t not falter and fizzle in front of the risks and challenges that surround change.
Here are some highlights of our approach:
Engagement: Engaged students mean effective learning. Our pedagogy puts students at the heart of the learning and focuses on transferring not just knowledge but also applied skills for life. Through case discussions and student and management led programs, King’s students get many opportunities to learn firsthand about business and management issues and practices.
Research: We feel that it is important for our students to understand Nepal’s problems and come up with innovative solutions. Thus, we teach our students to independently conduct researches and contextualize their findings to make them useful. Research at King’s college must always be high quality in order to produce knowledge that is applicable outside of the research setting. And it should have implications that go beyond the group that has participated in the research.
Collaboration: Because organizations have started to increasingly depend on teams, with team members from diverse backgrounds, we use collaborative teaching and team learning as an integral part of the educational process at King’s College. To be an effective leader of the future, we believe that students first need to understand how people work, what is team dynamics, and what can grow from the input of diverse participants. Students will have many opportunities to sit in various types of teams at King’s.
Respect for Standards: We encourage our students to adhere to quality standards. This is very important in our culture where giving up is more acceptable than taking risks and making comprises is just everyday business. We want our graduates to take it to heart that growing professionally, or establishing businesses, has never been harder in Nepal and that only tenacity and perseverance can ensure success in difficult situations. This is why our culture is to set high quality standards for all our students and faculty members and expect nothing but the best for them.
