How Does the Diploma Programme of MLSI Help in Shaping a Student’s Professional Life?

On June 3, 2020,

One of the fundamental motives of the education structure at MLSI is to prepare students for the rigors of university life and beyond. The learning imparted emphasizes on real-world scenarios through models such as concept-based learning, inquiry-based learning, and critical analysis/research. Elements such as the CAS (creativity, action, service) and the Theory of Knowledge further enhance this learning.

To get a clearer picture, here are the unique ways in which the IB Diploma can help shape and structure a student’s life well beyond school –

Time Management

It’s no secret that the IB ends up taking a major chunk of a student’s day and ends up leaving them craving some personal time. When not studying for mock exams or drafting copies of an extended essay, students are busy racking up CAS hours by volunteering through community service or rushing to make it on time for the extracurricular activities offered by the school. At first, the schedule may feel a bit intimidating for most, but the structure of the programme itself helps children manage their time.

Time management is essential during all the stages of life but is even more important when coming to college or entering a professional work environment. Without efficiency in time management, many freshmen will crack under pressure when they are presented with the extraordinary demands of college/work.

Diversity/Variety in Education

Studying six subjects means students have the option to play around with subject combinations while still at school and explore different avenues. However, the diploma ensures that this doesn’t come at the expense of academic rigour. The IB structure students follow three subjects at Higher Level – 240 hours of teaching for each. Another integral component in the curriculum is, learning a second language – which is something which has become increasingly important in recent years, not just from an academic point of view but also in terms of professionalism and international business.


An independent learning style or an inquiry-based model of study is encouraged throughout the time of the IB program at MLSI. By studying in a college that develops the capability of working and completing tasks independently with minimum guidance from the faculty, children are already one step ahead of their classmates who may struggle with this mental and emotional transition. In professional life, guidance and support are rarely handed to young professionals on a platter. It is critical to harness a sense of independence and self-reliance.

Education at MLSI is specifically curated to form intellectual, well-organised, alert, and self-reliant learners. We understand that the rigours of the world of higher education and professional life are quite different compared to those of high school, and our education structure and methods of learning are designed to prepare students exactly for this.
