Today, Corporate India clearly feels a need to connect more with Management Students and in many cases have asked for a longer summer internship duration, so that students are well-acquainted with the corporate culture when they join the company payroll.
Given the clear need, corporate exposure at KSOM is intense and significantly higher than other comparable B-schools. On an average, there is one corporate interaction event per week, at the school.
Seminar series lecture is the most frequent mode of corporate interaction, where a middle / senior management executive take an entire session (instead of a regular class), and speak about their real-world experience. The experience is clearly linked to the syllabus and brings a practical aspect to substantiate the theoretical learning. This keeps the students abreast of the current happenings and provides a platform for them to interact with luminaries of different fields.
These interactive sessions enable our students to observe, ask questions and infer. Every course has identified number of sessions earmarked for seminar lectures.
