We at SAMSOE, believe that simply studying from textbooks is not enough. Today, it is important to acquire skills that would enable individuals to apply their classroom training to a rapidly changing world. Towards this end, we incorporate various modern techniques to engage out students and instil in them the spirit of inquiry.

Case studies and real world examples are integral part of the curriculum at SAMSOE. That apart, students are shown movies and documentaries to help them associate textbook knowledge to real world scenarios. In some course students are engaged with the subject matter through games and other class activities.
