    Summer Internship Programme (SIP)

    Internships have a distinct edge over interview based final recruitment as a method of evaluating potential employees. Deserving candidates often get Pre-Placement Offers, and students at AIM have enjoyed a particularly special relationship with their recruiters in this regard. It is firmly believed by the recruiters that summer interns offer a fresh perspective to projects. They are in a unique position to provide an objective and unbiased point of view about the organization’s work process.

    After completion of three terms in the first year, the students undertake Summer Internship in industry for gaining hands-on experience. SIP is of eight to nine weeks duration. As a part of SIP, students submit a detailed project report and make a formal presentation to a panel consisting of Faculty and external members from industry/ academics.

    PGDM (BFS) - Second Year Course

    The Programme offers the student a Major in the area of Banking & Financial Services, along with a Minor in any other area, thus opening up a broader choice of careers. The second year courses are a mix of compulsory (core) courses and electives in the specialization areas of student's choice.

    There are two compulsory courses in each term. The student selects a total of twelve elective courses, eight from the Major area and four from the Minor area, as shown under. All courses carry 1 credit each.

    The second year students undertake a six-month long research project, concurrently with terms V and VI. This is a crucial phase in their programme, as it involves an integration of their theoretical knowledge with the practical world of business. Collection of data through primary research and/or secondary research is an integral component of this project. The students proceed as follows:

    Selection of project by student in his/her area of specialization
    • Submission of Synopsis as a project proposal to the assigned Faculty Guide.
    • Approval of Synopsis by Faculty Guide.
    • Execution of the project under close supervision of Faculty Guide, with periodic progress reviews and evaluation.
    • Submission of detailed Project Report, followed by presentation by the student before a panel consisting of Faculty and external members from industry/ academics.
