Internships not only offer a good learning experience for the candidates but can also enhance their resumes. The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) are renowned and prestigious business schools in the country. IIMs also offer internship opportunities for students. Here are a few IIM internship options.
IIM-Ahmedabad (IIMA) is one of the best IIMs and is the most sought-after B-School in India. IIMA currently has an internship opportunity for candidates interested in assisting history related research projects. Interested candidates can send an email to Professor Chinmay Tumbe (IIMA) at firstname.lastname@example.org along with their CV, written sample, letter of motivation, internship dates among others. More details are available on IIMA's website.
IIM Kozhikode (IIMK) is also offering a research internship opportunity for students of premier higher educational institutes. Selected candidates would also be eligible for Rs. 5,000 monthly stipend and free hostel accommodation during the internship. According to IIMK, interested candidates can send an internship application directly to the faculty member they want to work with. Other details are available on the IIMK website.
Candidates could also try for internships at some IIMs by sending their applications via email. They can visit the faculty page of the IIM of their choice and find a professor, under whom they want to do an internship, keeping in mind their career interests.
Before sending their internship application, candidates should do good research to gather information about the professors. Candidates must ensure what they want to work on resonates with the work of the professors they want to intern with. Next, they can send their cover letter and internship resume to the professor's E-mail ID. They will hear from the concerned professor if their application is selected.
