The Objective:

The overall objective of summer training is to offer a practical


exposure to the students of management discipline concerning real business
environment. The intent is to provide an arrangement whereby students are
able to relate the classroom learning with the practice. During summer
training students are expected to:

1. Observe keenly business practices in real business environment and


calibrate the Input with their classroom learning.
2. Using classroom learning to resolve issues being faced by business
entity where he is pursuing his summer training. This helps a student
to further test his learning on the practical side of the things.
3. Learn to attend issues in hand with a scientific temper. They are
expected to use their knowledge concerning research methodology to
understand some important issues being faced by enterprises and
study. analyse & synthesize the same in order to offer a feasible
resolve.
4. Identify an opportunity of summer training that matches with the
specialization that he intends to pursue.

What they are required to do at the Summer Training:


1. First of al they need to internalize the working environment of the
business entity where they have been placed to peruse summer training.
2. They should take a stock of what they are expected to do during their
summer training assignment. For the same, they should take few sittings
with their superior to whom he is expected to report.
3. At the same time a student is expected to keenly observe the environment
and underpin the broad issues where he could contribute in offering
resolve. He should keep in mind that his/her areas of interest should sink
in with the specialization that he wishes to undertake during the next
semester.
4. Few of the students may find that the job allotted during summer training
does not has any scope of working on any relevant issue. In that case also
the onus will be on the student to get back to his research mentor and try
to identify an appropriate area for his project work.
5. Whole design of the work will have to be ratified by the research
mentor of the student. Any work conducted without approval of his
research mentor will not be evaluated when the same is submitted to
Faculty of Management.
6. The student will have to take a break of 04-05 days from his/her summer
training in order to access electronic data base of articles available with
the institute in order to develop theoretical base of issue that he/she is
attending.
7. After completion of his training a student will submit a preliminary
report to the business organization. He is supposed to work in detail on
the data collected during summer training when he is back in the
Campus. Every student has a facility to work on PASW 18.0 installed in
campus to analyse the data.
