Summer Internship Program
The summer Internship Program (SIP) aims at widening students’ perspective by providing an exposure to real life organizational situation. Summer Internship is an important and integral part of the academic curriculum. The Summer Internship lasts for 10- 12 weeks and tests the students thoroughly on their learning. These internships give students insight into the practicalities of work in the corporate world across various sectors. During these internships, the students undertake projects under the guidance of company senior executives (project guides) and the Institute mentors (Faculty Guides) closely interact with the students on a week to week basis. The objective of the internship is to enable students to gain first-hand experience in a particular industry. It helps students with ample opportunities to innovate and challenge ideas imbibed in the first year. It also assists students in being more receptive to market needs, and in deciding their area of specialization in the second year.
We are thankful to the following Organizations for giving opportunities to our students to do their SIP

Career Coaching & Mentoring
IIKM Business School’s unique Centre for Career Coaching & Mentoring (CCM), the first of its kind in India to support both student's and professionals. It is a student-centric development innovation where performance enhancement is accomplished through administration of assessment instruments followed by individual coaching with the help of psychometrical analysis.
How Mentoring Help?
Mentoring is one of the tools used by IIKM to nurture and grow its students. The mentor's job is to promote intentional learning, which include capacity building through methods such as instructing, coaching, profiling experiences, modeling and advising. Our Mentors understand the student’s true potential, and help them get clarity to attain career and life goals. Important benefit of this approach is that students are equipped for their life long career progression.
Students need someone to help and motivate them along the way. Maybe they need a ‘secret-ally’ to support them and boost their confidence. This ‘secret-ally’ is the Career Coach. Students need coaching when they are deliberating over a number of career options and need clarification about what they want from their career and how to attain it.
Career Coaches clarify students career goals as well as develop and implement a strategy to achieve them. It helps in unlocking a person’s potential to maximize his/her own performance. Career Coaching also helps in reduction of the attrition rate of employed managers by enabling a better fit for the recruiters’ needs.
