The goal of a successful educational program is effective through curriculum development and it should be able to meet
the needs and current demands and the expectations of the stake holders. The students admitted in a program belong to a heterogeneous group. In an undergraduate program, the students have variety of options. Many prefer to seek employment, some aspire for higher studies, few are interested in entrepreneurship and very few opt for research. The curriculum should cater to the needs of all these students. So the curriculum should be designed in such a way that it has all the KSA's (Knowledge, skill and Abilities). Employers want people who can think intuitively, who are imaginative and innovative, who can communicate well, work in teams, and are flexible, adaptable and self-confident (KenRobinson). The present study tries to seek answers to the following questions: What are we trying to achieve through the curriculum? (Intent) How do we need to organize the curriculum to achieve the agreed intent or aims? (Implementation) How do we measure the impact of the
curriculum and continuously improve it? This is done by studying the various models developed in the curriculum designing process and coming out with a model which is inclusive of the demands of the stake holders.
