Summer Internship Project (SIP)

UG: Graduating Batch of 2020

Summer Internship Program (SIP) is an essential part of UG program offered at FLAME University. All eligible students enrolled in UG program have to successfully complete SIP at a recognized company or organization following the 2 nd year of coursework. Duration of SIP will be 08-10 weeks. This will be valued as equivalent to two full courses in a term, i.e. 4 credits will be awarded for its successful completion. Each student will be evaluated and graded on their work in SIP. Any student, who has not completed SIP successfully, will not be awarded graduation certificate by the University.

Objective of SIP is to immerse students in the operational process and work environment of an organization and provide them an opportunity to contribute to the achievement of organizational objectives. SIP is fundamentally designed to provide students an exposure to the real-time working of organizations and to gain valuable experience.

Every student will work under the supervision of an authorized individual in the designated organization. This individual, in her/his managerial authority and capacity in the organization, will act as “Company Guide” to the student. The student will be expected to follow the instructions of company guide completely. She/he will adhere to organizational rules, regulations and norms applicable to the interns without exception. 100% attendance during SIP is compulsory. Any act of indiscipline, insubordination or any kind of inappropriate behavior, if reported by the company guide to the university, will be treated with utmost seriousness.

Every student will be assigned to a faculty member from FLAME University, who will be “Faculty Guide” to the student throughout the duration of SIP. The faculty guide will help the student, along with the company guide, in defining and achieving the objectives of SIP. Both the company guide and faculty guide will be actively involved in each stage of SIP and will evaluate the outcome.

Expected Learning Outcome

After successful completion of SIP, the students should be able to achieve the following objectives:

Get an overview about the industry/business and the macro environment in which it functions

Get a comprehensive idea about the company/organization, the micro-environment: business model, processes, functions, work-culture, etc.

Understand the importance of each of the functional areas within the organization and their interdependence for effective performance

Understand in detail about the specific functional area under focus in SIP

Learn the basics of working in an internship program : following instructions, working in teams, achieving results
