Directors Message
Dear Friends,

Let me first share with you my reasons of reaching out to you.

I have a unique profile that the last business I started (GlobalLogic) grew to
over 10,000 people within 10 years. I saw a hyper growth business from the
inside and learnt first hand about people like you and me the most.

All this while, I saw a constant fact around me as I interacted and reviewed
thousands of job applicants and handheld successful professionals. I found
that a true professional is created within a great campus. A sincere hand-
holding experience in campus which hones skills and boosts confidence is
what is required for a great first job and a greater successful career
progression. Specially when it comes to a PG Management program, an
industry oriented program where each student is allowed to excel, is the key.
Rajul Garg,
I saw a great opportunity in re-imagining PGDM/MBA to meet todays needs.
At Sunstone, we made it contemporary, industry oriented, more practical,
even more fun! For your benefit, the product has been re-done ground up. It
is common in other industries - 2G gave way to 3G, which is now giving way
to 4G. These are not incremental improvements, they are complete re-
designs. This is the real potential in a campus program that can be yours now.

We started on this path four years back with our path breaking problem
based learning design for experiences professionals. We saw amazing results.
We are now bringing this innovation to full time campus MBAs. We have
partnered with colleges to do a complete re-design we take complete
responsibility of the students from admissions to placement.

What is Sunstone?
Sunstone started as a management education entity in 2010 directly
emanating from the corporate domain with the idea of Designed by
Industry, For the Industry. It then extended its footprint into the regular
campus programs and expanded fast to encompass multiple campuses
and courses thereby transforming itself into Sunstone Eduversity, an
equivalent to a university system with diverse campuses and courses.
Sunstone MBA is built over 4 primary pillars:

1. PG Management Education should be designed for the student
seeking a career
Management graduates should get a launch pad for a good start in their
careers. Hence, education has to be very closely integrated with the
industry requirements. Every part of Sunstone has the stamp of the
corporate world. Right from the founders, faculty, the course curriculum,
the live projects, internships, pedagogy, activities and finally placements.

2. Curriculum should be Job-oriented not Theory-based
Management professionals are required to solve real business problems
and work in intense business situations. Hence, the curriculum should be
closer to real situations rather than covering theoretical aspects only. All
courses at Sunstone are mandated to have real business problems and all
theoretical aspects are followed by real business use cases.

3. Faculty from Industry should act like a career mentor
Purpose of faculty is more than broadcasting the lectures- it should
include coaching students for real corporate experiences. We believe that
students only learn when they work with coaches to practice
management concepts in realistic situations.

4. Use of technology to create new age managers
Technology has reduced the information gap and students have access to
the best possible content in the world. Sunstone leverages this content to
make sure the students are aware of global phenomenon in
management. Technology understanding is also a requirement to be a
informed manager in current information age.

for global
Having established itself as the best online management course in India, Sunstone now has
under its domain UG courses like BBA and B.Tech. beside the flagship MBA / PGDM courses.
Further showcasing its deep corporate connect and ensuring that knowledge percolates right
into campus programs, Sunstone Eduversity is positioned on the lines of Corporate in Campus.
Sunstone Difference
Story of Sunstone
The backbone of any educational enterprise is its faculty. The
founder of Sunstone is Mr. Rajul Garg, a corporate entrepreneur and
achiever. After his engineering graduation from IIT Delhi, he co-
founded GlobalLogic and later delved into many more corporate
ventures in technology, healthcare and education. He realized it is
time to give back by enabling more and more young people Achieve
Job-Winning-Ability and Learning-Attitude (JWALA) at college itself.
He is the main force behind the curriculum development which
comes not only from his vast corporate knowledge and interface but
also with the support of a large team of Sunstone faculty who have
successful corporate backgrounds.

The co-founder of Sunstone is Mr. Dinesh Singh who is also an
engineer from IIT and an MBA from Cornell USA, who worked with
best consulting companies such as McKinsey & Co and has diverse
experience in education, telecom, healthcare, retail.

Mr. Nituj Gupta, the Executive Director of the Campus Programs is an
honours mechanical engineering graduate from NIT Rourkela with
several post graduation qualifications in management, sales and
marketing, materials management & ecology and environment
management. He has an illustrious corporate background spanning
public, private, MNC with international experience

Sunstone in the context of evolution of PGDM/MBA
An important thing to understand is the evolution of management education in India. The IIMs
have been the leaders in this space and as the demand for management education grew several
institutions mushroomed all over the country. Most of the colleges lacked the most important
corporate interface which was required to ensure the end result of a commensurate placement for
their students. The result was that the students slowly got more skeptical and the demand for the
program started waning. Does that imply that the management program has lost its relevance? It
is actually the other way around. The human capital has become even more important to any
successful corporate enterprise. Management education in the same continuation is still an
indispensable part therefore with most domains still needing management professionals.
Management education needs to be practicable
and applicable in real world scenarios. Sunstone is
restructuring the management education to build
new age managers who can instantaneously add
value in corporate world

Sunstone Pedagogy - UPLIFT
The basis of Sunstone program is learning experientially, similar to the way we learn at work. There are
two ways in which we make this happen firstly, by following a problem based learning pedagogy and
secondly, by following a strong peer collaboration approach to learning. This unique pioneering and
successful pedagogy of problem based learning has been graphically represented below. UPLIFT is
further a customization to suit the student entering the campus programs.

Sunstones innovation in curriculum is interwoven with regular PGDM program to make
students corporate ready. The program is integrated with regular industry internships at
different intervals including before joining the program, after finishing 1
year of program
and final semester of the program.
Sunstone Pedagogy - UPLIFT
Sunstone has successfully pioneered the online PGPM course for working candidates with the
Problem Based Learning pedagogy. Taking this forward and customizing the same for the regular full
time classroom based PGDM/MBA programs, Business Programs at Sunstone Eduversity have come
out with the UPLIFT pedagogy.
U understand. Classroom Teaching as practiced mostly in regular courses with the objective to
make students aware of the basic concepts.

P practice. Theory and practice are deeply interrelated where theory is a documentation of practice
and as new things are practiced the theory keeps getting evolved. Understanding is enhanced by
practical examples related to the actual usage in the industry.

L learn. This is the stage where the established problem based learning approach which is the
hallmark of the teaching methodology at Sunstone is applied. The previous page has a detailed
graphical representation explaining this part of the pedagogy.
I imbibe. To ensure that any learning becomes a permanent part of the way a student thinks it has
to be imbibed and internalized. That means that the student needs to do individual activities and got
through evaluation methodologies which ensures that the student internalizes the learning and the
same is reflected in the evaluation.
F- future. Students need to be further mentored and tutored to think and innovate beyond the
current way of doing things to how things could be shaped in the future. That is the way the industry
grows and a competent manager not only has to be deeply involved but has to be the driver of this
T technology. Technology has reduced the information gap and students have access to the best
possible content in the world. Sunstone leverages this content to make sure the students are aware of
global phenomenon in management. Technology understanding is also a requirement to be a informed
manager in current information age.
