FORE School of Management, New Delhi uses the concept of credit to define the weightage of a course in the curriculum. Courses are listed as one or half credit courses depending on the indicated workload for each course. The norm for one credit course is that it involves about 30 hours of classroom teaching and adequate time outside of the class towards reading, assignments, project work, etc. In line with this, a half credit courses will have a proportionately half the work load. Most of the core and elective courses are one credit courses.
