INTER-COLLEGIATE SUMMER INTERSHIP COMPETITION
22nd August, 2015
Internships, as one is well aware, are key to adding experience, skills and knowledge that help choose a career path, gives one a cutting edge, besides infusing fresh ideas and developing strategic perspectives in the areas of business. Acknowledging the enriching experience of internships in the life of an MBA student, K.J. Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research (SIMSR) announces the commencement of its annual flagship event,SPRIHA, which provides a brilliant platform for students to showcase their assimilated knowledge and know-how besides enabling them to share their internship experience with fellow students, faculty and industry experts at a competitive inter-collegiate level that evaluates the “Best and Elite” minds across both our in-house students and students across other leading B-Schools.
As students take up this challenge of winning the “Best Summer Project” award at SIMSR, their innovative and ‘Best-in-Class’ presentations across varied specializations of Finance, Marketing, operations, HR, Retail and other functional areas would be evaluated and screened by panels of faculty and industry experts. The evaluation criteria is comprehensive and judges each of the projects on parameters such as the project’s relevance to the industry, the rigor of the research undertaken and the quality of the suggestions made at the end of the project. The students also get tested on their communication and presentation skills besides their competency in handling the question hour from a diverse audience of industry experts and students. Spriha facilitates not only industry interactions but also enables brainstorming among the student fraternity from every nook and corner, making it a rewarding journey. It is therefore no wonder that the event has a wide appeal and is gaining strength from year to year.
The event is conducted at multiple levels. The Intra-B competition is confined to the in house students of SIMSR only and the semi-final and final rounds of the Intra-B competition is scheduled to be held on August 9, 2015 and August 16, 2015 respectively. The second level of the event is the Inter-B competition which extends to the students of other B-schools. The grand finale of Inter-B competition is scheduled to be held on August 22, 2015 with the winner of the Intra-B round also participating.
With the prize money of Rs. 45,000 and a gamut of other prizes, and a wider participation from all over India; we anticipate a competition more intense, and look forward to SPRIHA 2015 soaring to unprecedented new heights of recognition and prestige across students, colleges and potential employers nationally.
