Internship

Internship

Academic background is not the only thing employers look for in candidates, but also professional experience. Through internship, not only can BBA-MGT students put Management theories and academic experience in into practice, but also gain hands-on professional experience and insider perspective of the industry.  A better understanding of the workplace and skill development will also provide students a cutting edge in job hunting after graduation.
