MDI Murshidabad Campus came into being in the year 2014, with the idea of offering top-quality management education to the deserving students, and nurturing local talent pool, to transform it into a group of global leaders of the future. Guided by a team of well-qualified and experienced faculty, every student at MDIM gets a solid vocational platform to successfully launch his/her management career.
The MDIM placement team’s basic objective is to facilitate placements for all the passing out PGPM final year students, as well as to make arrangements for the summer internships of the first-year students.
The placement process is majorly a student driven activity with institute only making some initial courtesy calls to the prospective companies, only to kick start the process. The placement team encourages students to hold and manage various placement related events, to help them strengthen their understanding of the corporate world and to improve their relationship with the businesses. These events include industry visits, research work and live projects.
This process is divided into multiple stages as follows:
At this stage, the industry representatives interact with the students via different mediums such as live projects, guest lectures, business thought leadership sessions and different corporate forums.
The placement cell shares the profiles of the students, along with other pertinent details related to them, in the form of detailed CVs.
Preplacement talks are held by the companies to provide students with an in-depth look into the prospective future of the proposed positions and roles, as well as the projected career growth.
After the preplacement talks, the companies invite applications from the interested students, and the interested students’ resumes are shared with them.
The applying students also rank different companies based on parameters that are critical to their long-term growth.
This is the final stage wherein companies carry out their selection process, starting with shortlisting of the CVs, followed by comprehensive interviews and group discussions.
