Student Internship
ISBR believes that MBA is not only about learning and acquiring skills within the campus. It just goes beyond that. As we are the budding professionals, we must know on where we can enhance ourselves in a better way. But this is not possible only by attending the class room sessions. Hence every student undergoes internship programs to hone his/her skills in this professional world where in they directly interact with industry and learn on-the-job skills.
Students can thus work in each and every sector of their choice. Generally an internship lasts for two months. The main objective of internships is to provide students with the knowledge of both Action and Comprehension. Here, action refers how to undertake the work in the organization and comprehension refers how the students need to work in this present scenario. This helps them to put as an experience on their resume which comes handy during the time of placements. Internships are useful for both experienced and inexperienced students. Inexperienced students learn their first lessons in corporate works culture, where as experience students augment their prior experience.
Skills like time management, team building, target orientation etc. cannot be taught in a classroom. This skill can only be imbibed in students if they are working on a live project.
But just doing internship is not sufficient. Once the internship is over, student is reviewed of their work. Competition between students for best internship award will be done. Judges drew from both college faculty as well as industry veterans. This enables students to improve not only their presentation skills, but also make the feel proud when they win the award.
Internship at ISBR is very strategically designed.
