We at Symbiosis Centre for Management Studies are committed to offering a programme that helps a student relate the theory taught in classrooms to the real time business environment. We believe that the art of management is best honed at the job and this cannot be substituted by the best of faculty, syllabus or infrastructure. Each student undergoes two internships, namely:
Internship with an NGO
At the end of the first year the students go for an internship with an NGO. This creates awareness of the working processes in an organization, besides inculcating in them a feeling of responsibility towards society.
Internship in a Business Organization
After the second year, the students go for their second internship program for a period of one month. This time, their focus is on learning and understanding the working of business processes and the practical working and dynamics of the various departments within an organization.
The objectives of this internship are:
- To give the students a real time experience of the corporate environment.
- To get an idea about the functioning of each of the major business operations.
- To understand the bigger picture by giving importance to the vital interdependence of systems and activities forming the processes.
The assessment of the above internship programs is done as follows:
The students are required to submit a project report after joining back for the next semester. The evaluation will be based on the feedback given by the company. The project will be allotted 100 marks which will be an internal paper.
