As per the Bangalore University MBA Curriculum, student has to undergo four weeks of internship in an organisation to get the first hand experience of ‘How an Organisation Works?’ An internship consists of an exchange of services for experience between the student and an organization.
Students can also use an internship to determine if they have an interest in a particular career and create a network of contacts. Students often see it as a way to develop their capabilities by practically applying the academic elements of their MBA degree and as an opportunity to learn about the work environment. It is common that previous interns would become employees to the organization once they have acquired the necessary skills and experience.
PRE PLACEMENT TRAINING
The Pre placement training programs are conducted by the in-house trainers as well as the experts from industry. We choose our trainers from various professional bodies and many others who could mould personality of the students and make them suit the needs of industry. Executives from industries organize the career guidance program and pre placement training program and the placement cell updates the students about the vacancies. Students are also informed about the crucial points of success.
For e.g. Infosys and Deloitte insist that students excel in English tests; Mahindra Satyam insists the students excel in Aptitude and Reasoning; SBI Life choose students based on their performance in online tests on English, Data sufficiency and Psychometry. Pre placement training teams visit the campus and educate the students on the process of selection and train them to face the interviews effectively.
