Corporate Interface and Placement Cell
The Corporate Interface and Placement Cell at NDIM is a largely student-driven, professional body incorporated for facilitating recruitment of the country’s best minds by global corporates. To recruit talent from NDIM, companies can register anytime on our official website through a readily available form. The Corporate Interface and Placement cell has a clear objective of ensuring all students of the BBA program get placed every year in top notch corporate, businesses and organizations and also to equip them with industry-specific knowledge.
To facilitate this objective, a ‘Placement Awareness Programme’ is conducted every semester, where the placement representatives visit each section of every semester. This ensures that the students are well informed about the placement activities of the college and their role in it.
This cell conducts the following main activities in the college:
· Final Placements
Our students have been placed for summer internship/ final placements in top corporates such as Sharekhan, Cosmic Group, HCL, Intarvo Technologies, ICICI Bank, Hero Honda, Bajaj Capital, Omkam Technologies, Barista, Future Retail, Soulfull, ADG Online, British Telecom, Kotak Securities, ICICI Bank, HDFC Securities, Swiggy, Zomato, Home Jiny etc.
The Corporate Interface and Placement cell also organised during the year Winter Internships and received a tremendous response from not just start – ups but also from prominent companies like Cadbury, Future Retail, HDFC Securities and HDFC bank.
Campus to Corporate Program at NDIM
Employability requires three key ingredients of competency: knowledge, skills and attitude. Academia over time has done a fairly good job on the knowledge front, but the gap is observed in areas of technical skills development including enhancing the students’ soft skills and behavioural skills.
NDIM's Campus to Corporate program emphasizes learning beyond the curriculum through mock interviews, GD's, PDP's, resume building, seminars, role plays, group exercises, field surveys, visits, workshops and corporate talks.
Corporate Interface and Placement Cell Activity
The Corporate Interface and Placement Cell makes efforts to call the companies for campus placement. A communication is sent to corporate telephonically, through email or visit to the company. The student database is forwarded to the corporate as per their requirement. Some of them provide industrial training, market surveys, field projects, product launches and campus recruitment. As per their policy they short list the student. After finalization of date and time, the Company conducts campus drive in the college premises or they call the students at their premises. Those students who are through with the aptitude test are qualified for next round like technical and HR interview. Once a student is placed in one company then he/ she is not allowed for the other corporate.
It is observed that most of the students of BBA program lack in communication and presentation skills. Due to this fact they are low in confidence and are unfit to get a job. There was a need to make them aware about the opportunities in specific fields. They were made aware of increasing corporate demands through various talks.
Campus to corporate program was effective in enhancing student capabilities in these areas through various activities like career counselling, corporate talks, mock interviews, mock GD’s, PDP’s, resume building sessions organized during the year.
