Placement Process

At KSOM, we understand the challenges students face while choosing their career paths. Many times students end up choosing a wrong career, something which is not aligned to their individual competences.
Placement process at KSOM starts early (towards the end of the first year) with each student undergoing a Competency Assessment and Career Management programme. Students are evaluated on various parameters to gauge their competencies and, areas of strengths and weaknesses. Output of the programme is made available to the mentor of each student so that a student is given proper guidance to choose the right career path and work on improvement areas.
Placement takes place under two categories: Summer Internship placement for first year students and Final Placement for second years.

Final Placement for Second Year MBA Students:

The placement season usually begins around October – November and usually continues till the month of May, the next year.

The placement process is usually as below:

  • Recruiter conducts a pre-placement talk and provides details of the job profile.
  • Recruiter provides the short-listing criteria.
  • KSOM sends the resumes of students based on the above criteria. Recruiter may or may not create a further shortlist
    at this point.
  • Recruiter visits campus. Some recruiters choose to give a pre-placement talk at this point.
  • Recruiter conducts the placement process (GD, PI, Written Test etc.) with support from KSOM’s placement cell.
  • Recruiter sends the final selection list.

Summer Placement for First Year Students

Each student at KSOM has to undergo 8 weeks (usually in the months of May and June) of Summer Internship in a reputed organization to experience the workings of the corporate world firsthand. Academic session begins in the first week of July and hence each student has to complete his/her internship by then.

Details on the Summer Internship

  • Summer Internship placement for First Year students begins around February. Each student is allotted a faculty member to oversee the internship.
  • Organizations picking students for summer internships pay the students a stipend for the 8 weeks.
  • The stipend is meant for a tangible and meaningful output the interns are supposed to provide to the organization.
  • Each organization preferably should create a Project with at least the following: Objective, Audience, Method and Deliverables. This project can be arrived at either by the organization itself or in consultation with the student and faculty mentor.
  • To ensure that the project is on track and the student is getting the requisite inputs and support, it is suggested that the organizations appoint a corporate guide to the interns.
  • Every fortnight, the intern would appraise his/her faculty mentor of the progress, obtain signoff from corporate guide on completion, create a full project report and make a presentation for final evaluation at KSOM
