Institute of Management Studies (IMS) Ghaziabad recently organised a sensitisation workshop on Summer Internship Project (SIP) for its students of Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) to help them make the most of their upcoming internships.
The workshop was conceptualised under the guidance of Urvashi Makkar, the director of IMS Ghaziabad. Speaking on the occasion, Makkar highlighted the significance of the term ‘sensitisation’ in terms of giving the young minds a sense of purpose as to why they will be doing the SIP.
Referring to summer internship as a “milestone”, she emphasised that students must try to draw maximum opportunities by converting their SIP into pre-placement offers (PPOs) and climbing up the corporate ladder.
The expert speaker for the session was Manoj Pant, an associate professor at BIMTECH, who advised the budding managers to take up their summer internships with a positive attitude coupled with the right blend of confidence and humility. Citing various examples from the corporate world, he addressed the queries of the students in the interactive session.
Suggestive feedback given by the corporate recruiters was shared with the students by Asjad Iqbal, the head of the Corporate Resource Centre at the institute. Students were also apprised with the guidelines, assessment, timelines as well as probable topics for project work in various functional domains.
