SDMIMD Summer Internship Projects:

Summer Internship Project at SDMIMD Mysore is designed to provide the PGDM student with an opportunity to work and gain first-hand exposure to the environment, work culture and processes that prevail in real-life organizations. Based on the learning of the first three terms of the program, the student is equipped with the conceptual skills but lacks the experience of putting this learning into practice. SIP provides the intern an opportunity of learning and decision-making.

SDMIMD requires that every student undergoes such an experiential learning process at the end of the first year of the PGDM program. The Placement Cell will help the students in finding suitable summer projects and will also provide necessary guidance in completing their assignment. Students may be allowed to source a SIP on their own provided the project details meet the requirement of the Institute. In such a case, the concerned organization should provide a written communication to the Institute before a specified date confirming the project.
