REGISTRATION
As a part of MBA course curriculum, every student has to register with the Corporate Resource Centre for summer internship. Registration takes place at the institute after the End-Term examinations of the second semester. The students are advised to register themselves on Amizone as per the required deadlines. The information has to be furnished in the prescribed Performa given on Amizone. The students, who will proceed for summer internship without having registered will be declared ‘fail’ in summer internship. Also such students will not be allowed to register for Semester III.

SUMMER INTERNSHIP GUIDES
During the entire summer internship, students are required to work with two guides, Industry Guide and the Faculty Guide. The faculty guides shall be allotted by a panel appointed by Head & ADG, ABS. Students are advised to arrange a meeting wherein the faculty guide and industry guide can interact and help the students to deliver good results.

INTERACTION WITH INDUSTRY GUIDE
The faculty guide will interact with the industry guide periodically. In the beginning, this interaction helps the faculty guide to chalk out an effective orientation program and later the whole internship program. These meetings will also enable the industry guide to know about the progress of the projects and assignments. At the end of the internship, the faculty guide will seek the industry guide’s critical comments on reports submitted by the student with a view to receive the much-needed feedback on the student’s work. The students should interact with the professional experts in the organization periodically. These interactions help the students in letting the experts know about their progress in the assignment and also to get the directions and instructions for further study. In these meetings, the students may clarify their doubts and discuss their assignments for better understanding and working. When the assignments are in progress, the role of the experts is that of a consultant. Normally the students are required to approach professional experts with prior appointment and after discussing with the faculty guide and the industry guide, so that they go well prepared and derive maximum benefit from the experts. Every effort should be made to ensure that professional experts do not have to worry about routine details concerning the educational and administrative organization of the internship program.

INTERACTION WITH FACULTY GUIDE
The regular periodic interaction between the faculty guide and the students is necessary. This interaction helps in continuous monitoring and guidance of the students in their project and assignment work. In these meeting, the faculty guide will advise the students about their performance and progress in the project and assignment task undertaken by them. Student must ask the faculty guide about his/her strong as well as weak points and the ways to improve upon the weak points.

ORIENTATION PROGRAM
The orientation program is aimed at ‘know-your-organization school’. It is suggested that in a period of 2 to 3 days, the student should become familiar with the organization structure, processes involved, historical developments, and future expansion programs of the organization etc. They should visit various departments, shop floors, attend orientation lectures by the organizational experts, and refer to various annual reports and manuals. The student should become familiar with the organization in all respects. The faculty guide may conduct a test and as well as ask the student to submit an interim report to discuss the learning in the orientation programme.

SUMMER INTERNSHIP ASSIGNMENTS AND OPEN ENDED PROJECTS
After the completion of the orientation program, depending on the student’s interest and the opportunities available in the organization, a student may choose a particular department or activity or function or an on-going project within the organization. This may later be converted into a project or assignment. The strength of the internship program and the latent abilities of the students can be effectively harnessed into these projects or assignments. The faculty guide will play an effective role in chalking out this particular aspect of the internship program in consultation with the industry guide. If the opportunities are not available for the students to participate in the projects or assignments, they may be asked by the faculty guide to make an in-depth study of the organization on a specific aspect of the management. In order to keep track of the progress made at various internship organizations, the faculty guide will keep collecting various types of information from the students at different points of time.

ATTENDANCE
The students are required to follow the timings of the organization and attend to their work daily except on holidays that are applicable to the organization. They should observe all the rules and regulations, which are applicable to the employees / Summer Interns of the organization. Students should remember at

A CRC member will be allotted to every student to facilitate this process and to verify and validate the information given by the student in the synopsis. after the assignment given by the industry guide is over. or professional standards for the position. Writing a diary has to be periodical. It also provides a wonderful opportunity for the faculty guide to study and evaluate the student’s ability to collect and apply information and analysis techniques. In the synopsis the student is required to submit validated information of the industry guide and HR Personnel. The project diary is an important parameter in deciding the continuous evaluation marks. Continuous Evaluation by Corporate Resource Centre The continuous evaluation by CRC will depend upon synopsis. 2011 for which invitation letter will be given to students to invite the industry guides.Page 6 of 42 Project diary (See Appendix C): The project diary maintained by a student enables the faculty guide to judge the points mentioned earlier. it shows his/her hard work.

If a student gets PPO form the company where he did summer internship. The industry guide will also be requested to offer his/her observations on the student’s potential and performance along with information on the kinds of work he/she did and the experiences he/she encountered during internship (see Appendix D). It is an attempt to cultivate the habit of documentation and to encourage him/her to search for details. comparing him/her with other students of comparable academic level. dedication and quality of work while working for the company. However if an industry guide is not from NCR. The faculty guide will check and sign the diary periodically. . pre placement offer (PPO) received by the student after the summer internship and confirmation of industry guide/industry mentor to attend Global Leadership Summit (see Appendix F). the student may invite industry mentor for the same. The students are advised to follow the guidelines of the organization for submission of the report. Project Report to be Submitted to the Organization Generally the organizations where the student is working ask for submission a project report.

The dates for submission and viva voce will be announced separately.Page 7 of 42 It is important to bear in mind that even though the project report is submitted only at the end of any given assignment. Therefore. a final draft is examined and approved by the faculty guide and the candidate is ready to prepare a document for final submission to the academic department for viva voce.

Students are advised to strictly follow the format and guidelines for internship project report (See Appendix A to A4). The pre submission board may like to give some suggestions for the improvement of the report. The scholarly work done by the student prior to the final preparation of the project report is outside the domain of this manual. in reality. Pre-Submission Board and Final Viva Voce Board. however the final decision to implement those improvements solely lies with the faculty guide (see Appendix G).
