Internship & Placements
Placement at IUU is a rigorous process that begins with the induction of the student in the University and culminates into a final job offer to the student. Various parameters are laid down for the students to be eligible to participate in placement and they have to formally register themselves for availing the on-campus/off-campus placement opportunities provided by the University. Students who do not register and not found fit on these parameters are not allowed to apply for any placement opportunity offered by the placement cell. The Career Services Cell takes care of multiple responsibilities to provide better training and placement opportunities to the students.
The process of placement can be summarized as under:
1. Gap Identification & Skill Development
The cell identifies the areas related to communication, personality, business etiquettes and effective decision making where students need to improve to get better placement opportunities. Skills required by different Industries are developed in students through regular training and development programs. The Career Services Cell keeps itself updated about the changing requirements of the corporate world and prepares the students accordingly to serve the industry professionally.
2. Grooming & Etiquette Training
The students are exposed to this training to moderate their behavior to suit the modern society. Such trainings cover the importance of personal grooming, appropriate business dressing & dining etiquettes, verbal and non-verbal communication, telephonic & mailing etiquettes and general professional conduct.
3. Personality Development Program
It all starts with the process of Personality Mapping – I, Me and Myself followed by Regular Personality Development programs conducted for the students to bring a positive change in their attitude, body language and personality.
4. Mock Interviews and Group Discussion
Mock interviews and Group discussions are regularly organized by the panel of Experts to sharpen the communication skills of the students. This helps the students to improve their knowledge in diverse areas and communicate coherently.
5. Summer Training & Internship
At the end of the first year, the students of MBA Full Time are required to undergo for the Summer Internship of 8-10 weeks during the months of June and July. Our MJMC students take-up 4-6 weeks Internship program in media organizations of repute after the completion of their first academic year.

The objective of Internship is to give students an opportunity to apply learnt techniques, develop sound decision making abilities and learn about organizational structure and culture.
6. Pre Placement Talk (PPT)
The Pre-Placement Talk has been the standard practice to facilitate interaction between the industry and the students. The organizations participating in the placement process are requested to make a brief presentation about themselves, the opportunities and prospects ahead for the aspirants along with the detailed job description for the positions they wish to recruit for. In order to facilitate the process of PPT, the University provides the necessary support.
7. Final Placement
The Campus Recruitment Program commences in the month of August and begins with filling up of the Training and Placement Assistance Form. A list of eligible students is taken out by the Department who are allowed to sit for the final placement process. The students then are geared up to deliver their best. In this regard, the major focus of the Career Services Cell is on developing life skills in our students, regular corporate interactions, summer internships and final placements.
