Summer Internship Program Batch 2018-20

Our 1st year students are yet to start for their summer internship program. However, few companies have approached us to give opportunity to our students to do summer internship in their organization. Profiles like international marketing, business development, market research; supply chain management, digital marketing survey, etc are on the desk for our students. Expected Average Stipend per Month is 10k.

Summer Internship Program is a path to enter a pharmaceutical corporate in a profile of interest and give a linear growth in long time. Companies do offer PPOs (Pre-Placement Offers) to candidates who performed well during their summer internship.
