As part of the University course curriculum, it is mandatory for the BBA students of the Second Year (Fourth Semester) to undergo Six weeks Summer Internship, during the period June/July.
Internships and Live projects have also to be undergone by BCA & BJMC students.
Internships are very important, because they substantially increase the chance of graduates finding employment. To an employer, a candidate who has spent time working for a firm within a particular industry shows dedication to a particular career, enthusiasm for a particular job and importantly, has experience.
Internships are also very useful to interns themselves as they offer the chance to find out what working for a particular company, or within a certain industry, is really like. Internships also allow interns to make contacts with managers and recruiters, which can later be used to negotiate full-time employment.
Companies also sometimes pay interns for their time during an internship, and stipends can be very good indeed. The highest recorded pay for a BBA internship in 2016 was Rs.12000 per month offered to interns at Tommy Hilfigers.
It is not unusual for graduates to return to the organisation who hired them as an intern, for full-time employment. Graduate recruitment surveys have found that almost half of all employers convert at least a tenth of their interns into permanent staff members.
