Summer Internships are an integral element of learning at a B School. They offer students an insight into the real corporate life and prepare them for their future careers. SCMS Cochin not only has a strong network with the industry but a placement cell with experts, who strive to bring the best opportunities to students. Moreover they are offered internships based on their interests and strengths, which works for them in the long run. Neeta Antony, student of Batch 2016 agrees as she says, “Having worked with Technology Production sector, my Summer Internship Programs (SIPs) on customer usage pattern of technology products with South India Bank, Coimbatore was the perfect learning experience to build on it.”
Students from the institute have an opportunity to do their SIPs with some of the biggest names in the industry. Their projects offer them an insider’s view on how the corporate companies work, and prepare them for the challenges of the industry. That’s the reason students from SCMS Cochin are picked up by the big names that look for professionally groomed management students. ICICI Bank, Reliance, Vodafone, Asian Paints, Deloitte are just few of the top recruiters of the previous season. Importantly, often a number of students who undergo their SIPs are offered Pre-placement opportunities by their SIP companies.
Mr. George Joseph, Placement Coordinator, SCMS Cochin School of Business states- “We try to find companies that are the right match for our students and prepare them for the final placements by giving them the best hands on experience,” he says. However, as he mentions, SIPs only build on the overall learning experience at the institute. After all, SCMS Cochin remains committed to creating socially conscious, successful business leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. It aims to do that through initiatives like Industry Interface sessions (III), Integrated Management Learning Program (IMLP) sessions, LIVE projects, simulation games, MDPs, PDPs, etc. and coupled with the SIPs they ensure that students have the best platform for their careers.
