Summer Internship Program (SIP) 

On completion of the first year, all students are required to undergo a Summer Internship Program of 8 to 12 weeks duration. This helps them to gain hands-on experience in the application of management concepts and functional skills. This practice of ‘Learning by Doing’ enables the student to relate the rigor of theory in the world of business. The students work on projects specified by the company in which they undergo SIP. At the end of the summer internship, which is done under the supervision of a company executive and a faculty mentor, students are required to submit a report to the company and to the institute. The concerned company executive normally provides feedback to the Institute on the student’s performance. Successful completion of Summer Internship Program is an essential requirement for the award of Post-Graduate Diploma at IMI New Delhi.

Faculty members at IMI New Delhi enjoy academic freedom to adopt appropriate pedagogy for imparting education in respective courses. Pedagogy is normally a combination of lectures, case discussions, presentations, assignments and project work. The primary emphasis is on interactive and participative methods of learning.  Faculty members for all the programs are primarily in-house from the Institute but may also include adjunct or visiting faculty members. Guest lectures from industry practitioners are also organized regularly to expose students to the current business environment and practices
