Summer Internship is an important and integral part of the Post-Graduate Programme, where students intern with their chosen organization for 8-9 weeks after their first year. The internship programme helps students gain first-hand experience in a particular industry and provides them with ample opportunities to innovate, and challenge ideas and techniques imbibed in the first year. It also helps them in being more receptive to market needs, and in deciding their area of specialization in the second year.
The summer internship also has an academic component: student interns prepare a report on the summer assignment and present it to the organization. They are also required to share their learning with the Department before they register for the second year. The requirement of making a formal presentation about the project to the company and to the Department ensures that sufficient rigour and discipline are brought in to this exercise.
The Department has enjoyed extensive corporate support for summer interns with the result that summer projects have been diverse, challenging, and intense learning experiences. Increasingly, a number of international companies have seen the value of this exercise and have collaborated with the Department. Also, each company gets a chance to evaluate the interns over a long period in a real business situation and make pre-placement offers based on this evaluation. A number of companies have used these internships as a key source for full-time hires.
More than 35 companies visited the campus to recruit students for their summer internship programs. These companies represented almost all the sectors of the Indian economy: banking, financial services, investment banking, consulting, FMCG, retail, manufacturing, IT. The companies offered roles in varied profiles that included finance, sales and marketing, consulting, strategy, HR, information management, and operations. The average stipend offered was INR 20,000.
