Bangalore: Indian Institute of Management - Bangalore (IIM-B) has made summer internships students who have at least 34 months of work experience. Earlier, the summer internships was mandatory, as part of the post-graduate programme at the IIM-B.
 
Presently, students will have the choice to work on other projects in campus or outside. Also, they can pursue other plans during the month of April-May, the period when students are usually busy with their summer internships. However, it has not been decided yet whether these students have the alternative to take up extra credit courses in campus during that period.
 
Ms Sapna Agarwal, Head, Career Development Services at IIM-B, said some of the students come back after the internship and told that the work they did during the eight weeks was similar to the work they did before joining the course at IIM. She added, therefore, they have decided to give them a choice to take up the internships, this year.
