This is a mixed mode program where coursework is completed through assignments & online assessments and the research for Master's Dissertation is done as Guided Research. The candidates have to complete 4 modules of theory before commencing the research on their university-approved topic.

Following are the generic top-level program requirements. The detailed curriculum shall be provided after enrollment:
- Coursework Modules (3 core + 1 elective)
- Acceptable and relevant Topic of Research

The supervisor should at least have a Master's Degree (or preferably a Doctorate Degree) and sufficient teaching/industry experience in order to be eligible for the same. In this case, the management of financials (honorarium cost, etc.) is done entirely between the supervisor and the student.
In case a student opts for a supervisor assigned by GradXs, GradXs shall assign a University approved GradXs-Assigned Mentor from its network of highly qualified and distinguished Research Mentors for guiding the student in the best possible way. However, this shall incur an additional fee of USD 500 or INR 35000.
