Post Graduate Programme in Management [PGPM], batch of 2016
The first year at IFMR lays foundation in core business courses that prepares the students for taking up specialized electives in the second year. The process of summer placements or summer internships, popularly known as 'summers', started sometime in September and went until February-March. The selection process is intense and is like a Mini-drill for the final placements. The students are under the guidance of our experienced faculty. As a part of the mentor-mentee system the students are allocated internship mentor to guide them through the internship projects.  About 50% of the batch is fresher and until the summer internship project, their interaction with corporates is nil. It is only after the hands-on experience of the summer project that the real picture starts to build for them. They are better informed about their interests and the field that they would want to work in. Summer internships are an opportunity for students to experience roles and responsibilities in the area of their choice and make a more informed decision about their career in the final placements. The internship for the batch 2014-16 saw visits of 52 companies which included some big names like Barclays, JP Morgan, HSBC, RBS, Capgemini, SBI caps, Crisil, HCL, TAFE, ICICI prudential, Murugappa Reliance Infra, RBI, Syntel, Hinduja Leyland Finance, L&T and BharatMatrimony. The roles offered were in the field of Risk Analysis, Finance, Marketing, HR, operations and Analytics. Some of the other good names were Wealth Advisors, Credit Café, Venture Intelligence, Expilco Consulting, Shipnet and IFMR Lead. The batch also witnessed roles in niche sectors of finance by Annapurna Microfinance, Sesta and MicroSave.
