The Objectives

The Summer Internship Programme (SIP) aims at widening the student's perspective by
providing an exposure to real management, organizational and environmental situations.
Positioned between the first year and the second year, this programme is the most effective
component in enabling the students to relate management theory to practice.

The main objectives of SIP are as follows:

01. To help students to understand where they are and where they have to go.
02. To get hands-on experience of real corporate management in general and obtain deeper
understanding of specific functional areas of management.
03. To help students to appreciate the linkages among different functions and develop a
realistic managerial perspective about organizations in their totality.
04. To help student in exploring career opportunities in their areas of interest.
05. To sensitize the students towards management/organizational issues and to help them
identify the constraints and opportunities for development.
06. To provide students an opportunity to get an in-depth study of the
management/organizational issues.
07. To link the theoretical inputs given during classroom sessions with a practical exposure,
during which students conduct field-based scientific and empirical research;
08. To provide the students an opportunity for practice of research skills, especially, the
formulation of research questions and hypothesis, data collection, data analysis, critical
reflection on the available data and research report writing.
09. To enable students to develop their analytical, critical, creative, innovative,
communicative and decision-making skills in the development field.
10. To teach students the methodology and importance of the process of documentation
(photo, audio, video).
11. To help the students to learn to prepare, implement, and monitor management/
development related projects on burning issues.

The Procedure

During the Orientation Classes, the students will be given inputs and practical exercises on the
Basics of Research Methodology and its links with different Functional Area of Management -
Human Resource, Marketing, Finance, and Rural Management. The faculty will guide the
students keeping in mind his/her area of specialization, research methodology and the
organisations where they do their SIP. The entire aim of this exercise is to promote critical and
developing analytical skills among students.

In the Organization, the student works, either individually or in a team, under the counsel of an
executive (Project Guide/HR Manager) who supervises and evaluates the performance of the
student during his/her SIP period and sends a feedback on the same to the Institute. The student
prepares and submits a report to his/her respective Organization and gives a presentation to the
organization, keeping in mind the requirements of that Organization.

The Components of the SIP Report

The SIP report should be a "Research" paper, which broadly describes the work experience of
the student. The following components are to be included:

1. A brief description of the organization -- its history, vision-mission, organizational culture,

administration, Financial Managing and functional areas of work.
2. Description of the study of an issue or a problem or a challenge the organization faces, as
directed by the management of that organization.

4. Reflections on the usefulness or relevance of the theoretical inputs for the field work carried
out during the SIP.
