IIM Indore UAE Placements for Summer Internship for the Class of 2014. For a batch of 38 students, the opportunities below are decent and interesting. What caught our eye were the internships in policy and research. This isn't explored enough according to us. If the batch size remains small, we believe this programme is promising. Another aspect to attract recruiters is that 100% students are admitted to this programme on merit.
At the outset, me must mention that our knowledge about this programme and its placements is relatively low because of its short history and lack of our network. However, we have received many queries regarding the placements for this programme and we are happy to report it in our format. We have done as much as we could to verify information. But, potential applicants and recruiters are advised to dig deeper and get as much information as possible first hand. We can confirm that the career services centre of the parent campus does not actively help either the PGP at RAK or PGP at Mumbai programme students. There are independent committees at work at both these campuses. A Corporate Resource Manager has been appointed who also looks at placements. IIM Indore is associated with the Higher College of Technology which is very influential in the region. Also, please confirm with students studying at RAK UAE if there are any companies mentioned here that made offers outside the institute's placement process.
We have done a feature on IIM Indore PGP at UAE a few months back which you can read here.
Please find a brief introduction (marked in blue below) by the IIM I UAE Media cell followed by the report in the InsideIIM format.
