About the Program
The Group Management Cadre (GMC) Internship Program places talented students in their first-year of business school into challenging summer internships with businesses across the Group. Past GMC Interns have carried out projects with long term impact. In Mahindra Two Wheelers, they have evaluated the launch of a Scooter brand, Duro and proposed its future marketing and product strategy. In Mahindra Finance, they have created a rating methodology for lending to small enterprises and developed our microfinance pilot program. At Mahindra Lifespaces, they have designed a Quality Improvement Plan based on customer feedback. As a GMC Intern, you will contribute real deliverables to the sector of your choice. You’ll create lasting relationships with Mahindra managers and leaders across all levels through close interaction on your projects. And you’ll experience the complexity and opportunity of working for a dynamic, high-growth federation of diverse businesses.

What We Look For
global mindset · result-orientation · innovativeness · team player · strategic thinking We look for candidates who are bright and hardworking, but other leadership qualities are just as important. Succeeding in the Group Management Cadre Internship Program requires a combination of creativity, critical thinking, and people skills. We need people with a global mindset to guide Mahindra in our expanding global influence. We seek talented, self-motivated workers who take the initiative to pursue new ideas. We want innovative thinkers who take well reasoned risks and think critically about how to improve existing processes. Good people skills with clients, partners, customers, and internal teams are imperative. We need people who work effectively on teams, value individual dignity, and respect the time and efforts of others. Successful GMCs excel with high levels of responsibility. They lead projects with important impact on company performance, customer satisfaction, and internal systems.

Hiring Process
The recruitment process begins in September with a round of campus visits. We send a recruitment team to hold a series of on-campus information sessions. Currently, we recruit from India’s top 17 business schools: IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bengaluru, IIM Kolkata, IIM Indore, IIM Lucknow, IIM Kozhikode, XLRI Jamshedpur, XIMB Bhubaneswar, FMS Delhi, IIFT Delhi, IMT Ghaziabad, MDI Gurgaon, SP Jain Mumbai, JBIMS Mumbai, NMIMS Mumbai, SIBM Pune, and SCMHRD Pune. First, we conduct a group interview where we invite candidates to talk about each other’s skills. This provides us with insight into candidates’ soft skills, interpersonal skills, and personality to enable us to identify good fits with the Mahindra culture. Next, interviews are held with our Human Resources and Business teams later that day. This interview helps us match candidates with positions they will enjoy and excel at. We hold a 100 percent commitment to meet your functional preference and an 80 percent commitment to meet your top two sector preferences. Offers are extended immediately after the interview. The final step in the process is a medical exam at a Mahindra-approved clinic to make sure you are physically fit to do your job.
