SUMMER PLACEMENTS REPORT 2018

Summer Placements Report - Archives

Summer Internship is an integral part of the PGP course at Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode. During their first year, students are trained in functional areas of Marketing, Finance, Consulting, Economics, Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management, Operations and Information Technology which orient them towards a business culture. The courses aim at molding their work ethic and developing skills highly valued by the contemporary industry.

At the completion of the first year in PGP course, students spend 8-10 weeks during the summer in the industry. Students are exposed to a real time business environment, and take up responsibilities and goals which aim at being mutually beneficial for both the student and the organization. It serves as a platform for applying the management theories learnt in the classroom and helps in providing clarity about the functional area that they desire to specialize in. Internships thus have a crucial influence on the career path and choice of organization by a student.

  • Internships have a distinct edge over interview-based final recruitment as a method of evaluating potential employees.
  • Deserving candidates often get Pre-Placement Offers, and students at IIM Kozhikode have enjoyed a particularly special relationship with their recruiters in this regard.
  • Summer interns offer a fresh perspective to projects. They are in a unique position to provide an objective and unbiased point of view about the organization’s work processes.
  • The students also act as brand ambassadors for the organization on campus, acting as spokespersons and spreading awareness about the company in general.

The average monthly stipend offered in 2014-15 was Rs.40,000/- while the highest was Rs. 95,000/- per month. In addition to this, to and fro air-fare or II A.C. rail-fare from the Institute/home town to the place of the training was provided by the organizations. Companies also bear any cost incurred related to traveling for the purpose of the project.

The recruitment process for summer internship commences from the first week of October. Companies can plan interaction with the students, either on any prior day or on the day they visit the campus for summer recruitment. Companies can choose any method suitable to them for selecting summer interns.

Companies are encouraged to send us their Job Description at least 15 days in advance. This will enable us to forward the resumes of interested candidates, and any other information that the organizations may require, before their visit to the campus.

Since students are obliged to accept the first summer job offered to them, companies are requested to select students well in advance.

Lateral Placements

Laterals provide an opportunity for the students to leverage their prior work experience and negotiate with the organization for a designation higher than that of a management trainee or an entry role MBA graduate. Companies benefit by gaining from the added advantage of accessing a rich talent pool with relevant exposure to the respective industry. The minimum work experience required is decided by the company based on the role and the profile of the batch.

Final Placements

Final placements are conducted at the end of the second year for final year students. During final placements, companies are allotted slots based on a democratic slotting process. The process will start in the month of January. Students who get offers during lateral placements will be automatically signed out of the placements process and will be unavailable for final placements. A student on getting an offer during the final placements process is signed out of the process.

Placement Chairperson's Message

Dear recruiters,

I would like to begin by thanking all our prestigious recruiters who have been a major source of encouragement for keeping our focus on the alignment of our courses with changing industry requirements. The time has come again for us to present a group of vibrant, young and dynamic minds to the outer world that waits to test and absorb the talent radiating from every individual.

At the institute we systematically expose our students to the strong fundamentals in their subject areas. At the same time we hone their interpersonal skills to create a brand of managers who have a global outlook, cultural empathy and social responsibility. Apart from the trimester based rigorous coursework, the students of the institute are also oriented towards building their managerial skills and perspectives by conducting consulting assignments, corporate interactions, business competitions, social development projects, interest group interactions, and extra-curricular activities.

Our institute is committed to creating excellence and perfection as its core mission. It constantly practices innovation in management learning that is not only conceptual but also analytical and oriented towards decision making.

Needless to say we take great pride in our industry partnership and constantly strive to make this affiliation mutually beneficial. We therefore take this opportunity again to invite you to the placement program for the new batch and eagerly seek your invaluable cooperation.

Best Wishes!,

Prof. Shovan Chowdhury
