Placement process at MDI is a student managed activity.
Placement at Post Graduate Program in Management
At MDI, it is institute's belief that experiences of corporate leaders provide invaluable learning to the students of management. The Business Thought Leadership Series has been designed to serve as a forum for exchange of intellectually stimulating ideas between business heads and future managers through the lecture format. Such sessions see students getting a practical perspective on the theoretical concepts learnt in class with the industry stalwarts gaining fresher and newer ideas. Continuing with this tradition, MDI saw the most successful managers, leaders, and thinkers descend on campus during the previous academic year.
Apart from ‘Business Thought Leadership’ sessions the college also have the Synapse series, apart from Workshops, Live Projects, and other corporate forums. The aim of the Synapse series is to have senior practicing managers share their functional expertise with students and provide them a practical view of the various functions of an organization. The series is conducted in a lecture format.
Workshops serve as customized avenues for organizations to interact with students. Simulation games, experiential exercises, and domain-specific training are some examples of the types of workshops that have been explored in the past.
Live Projects are an excellent opportunity for the students to assist managers in solving live business issues. These live projects could either be in the form of an independent project or a part of an ongoing project. For students, these projects are an opportunity to showcase their skills in the related areas in real business scenarios. For participating organizations, it is an opportunity to evaluate and leverage the caliber and intellectual capital of the students. At MDI, Live Projects are considered extremely serious assignments and hence each project is supervised by a faculty mentor who both guides the students doing the project and continually monitors the project’s progress. The students have been appreciated in the past for their efforts in Live Projects at leading organizations such as ABN Amro, Bharti, Cadbury, Deloitte, CRISIL, HUL, McKinsey Consulting, Philips, ICRA, Motorola, Nestle, Nokia, Reckitt Benckiser, RPG, Apollo Tyres, Aditya Birla Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ranbaxy, etc.
Apart from the above, Delphique, the flagship research event of MDI has been a meeting ground for students and the industry for the last 14 years. Delphique strives to collaborate with various leading companies for knowledge partnership for different panels spanning all management verticals. Delphique provides a platform for the Knowledge Partner to highlight the upcoming trends in its industry to the students and give them an opportunity to work on a research project on a relevant topic.
The Marketing Research Fair, Illumina, which is scheduled around Diwali (hence the name) offers organizations an opportunity to conduct extensive marketing research through the thousands of consumers who visit this fair annually. In the past, companies such as HUL, Pepsi, State Bank of India, the Aditya Birla Group, and Eureka Forbes have actively participated in this event and benefited from it.
As a compulsory part of curriculum, PGPM and PGP-HR students are required to undergo Summer Internship with an organization for a period of 6-8 weeks. The selection process for Summer Placements starts after the first term for the first year students. The period of Summer Internship is normally from the beginning of April to the mid of June.
Apart from the summer internship by the students enrolled in the PGPM and PGP-HRM courses, 30 students have enrolled for the Post Graduate Program in International Management (PGP-IM). These students do their internship abroad for a duration that can vary from anywhere between 4 – 12 months. In the past, PGP-IM students have interned with companies such as Bombardier, Sanofi-Aventis, Credit Agricole, BNP Paribas, Henkel Germany, Schwarzkopf, L'Oreal, British American Tobacco, Cartagena Capital, Dassault Systems, Allianz, Schneider Electric, NOAH Advisors, GE Healthcare, Orange, GIE AXA, etc. Several of these companies tend to absorb the interns as full-time recruits post the completion of the students’ academic curriculum.
