The internship aims to provide IoBM students with relevant corporate experience in reputed organizations. An internship bridges the gap between the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed in one's professional life. At IoBM the Internship Program for interns is designed to allow students to work on meaningful assignments and gain real-world experience; thus, making them immediately valuable for the organizations they join upon graduation. Real-world experience is aligned with the courses studied by students. Such knowledge is of vital importance to students in two main areas:

Gain Valuable Work Experience in the Chosen Field of Interest

An internship is a great way to gain hands-on work experience, develop specific skills and knowledge, and network with people from the students' chosen field. Moreover, employers assess the skills and abilities of prospective employees by evaluating their previous experience. Students pursue career-related opportunities prior to graduation, thereby, obtaining an edge over other candidates in the competitive job market.

Decide on Right Careers Prior to Graduation

An internship provides a more accurate picture of what individuals do in certain professions. After experiencing a particular job environment and observing what it entails, students may decide if this is the right career. The internship is compulsory for MBA regular and bachelor’ students. MBA weekend program and Evening program students are exempted from the internship program as they are already on the job.
