Employability Enhancement Activities
Aptitude Calibration Test

Many MMS/MBA students wish to know which specialisation stream suits their temperament and aptitude.

The Institute faculty have designed an Aptitude Calibration Test which can assess the current level of student knowledge and inclination towards different management specializations such as Marketing, Human Resource Management and Finance.

It helps them to choose which specialisation to opt for. This test is for a maximum of one hour.

Evaluation is done after the test and the result is displayed on the Institute’s notice boards for students to see their current scores across the specialisations.

Career Opportunities in MBA/MMS Specialisation Streams – Guest Sessions by experts

Every year guest sessions are conducted by Industry experts wherein they explain the careers available in their domains and career paths students can take once they graduate from the institute. Such guest sessions are conducted for all specialisations opted by the students i.e. Marketing, Finance, HR, Operations & Systems.

CV Designing & Resume Building sessions

Our CV is the first opportunity we get to make a good impression on a potential employer. The Institute understands this and hence arranges CV Designing & Resume Building Workshops for all students every year. These workshops are conducted by highly experienced HR Professionals from the industry.

Mock Interviews for each student

Mock interviews enable students to have a fair idea about what they are going to experience at actual interviews, and prepare them how accurately they can deal with it.

They help candidates reduce their anxiety about interviewing by training them for the typical interview questions.

The Institute arranges Mock interviews for each student based on the specialisation they wish to opt.

This combination of a Domain Expert and an HR Expert facilitates both technical and personal/HR round questioning, evaluation and feedback for the student.

Two industry experts are invited for each panel of interviewers, one being the domain expert (i.e. Marketing, HR, Finance, Operations etc.) and one being the HR Expert. This combination of a Domain Expert and an HR Expert facilitates both technical and personal/HR round questioning, evaluation and feedback for the student.

Ms Excel Workshops

Proficiency in Ms Excel has become the basic requirement for any MBA/MMS student seeking employment. All businesses irrespective of the size of their business operations require their employees to be proficient in Ms Excel. For students opting for Finance it becomes a critical skill for their job.
