After completing the mandatory courses of the first-year, students are get into the practical world of decision-making and business management in the Summer Internship Project (SIP). Spanning eight weeks, the SIP is selected according to the chosen specialisation of the students. They are assigned specific tasks which use the managerial concepts they have learned, in a practical environment. After understanding the student’s abilities and aspirations thoroughly, specific projects are assigned to each in conjunction with the companies concerned.
During the internship the students work under the guidance of a senior executive of the company and their progress is monitored by an internal faculty guide. Students keep in touch with the faculty guide on developments on the work front and obtain clarifications on the right way to progress. At the end of the program, they are required to obtain a certificate from the company they have worked with, that they have satisfactorily completed the work allotted to them. On return to the campus, they are required to submit a detailed report highlighting the practical application of management concepts in the work place as well as details on what they had learned in the company. The best Summer Internship Project Reports are published in the 'Excerpts of the Select Summer Internship Reports' brought out by the SDM Research Center for Management Studies (SDM RCMS).
