IIM Rohtak offers entrepreneurship internship to women at J&K universities
New Delhi: In B-Schools, students typically go to industries for an internship, but at IIM Rohtak the story has been different over the past two months. The management school has offered a tailor-made summer training program for women from different universities in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), who aspire to become entrepreneurs.
The B-School welcomed some 64 female students and trained them on various aspects of entrepreneurship – from fundraising to counseling, from writing business plans to their interaction with start-up founders.
The unique program allowed these students to spend six to eight weeks on the B-School campus to acquire entrepreneurial and management skills.
“Nurturing talented women who can become future entrepreneurs and academics is one of the best ways to help J&K further develop,” said Dheeraj Sharma, Director of IIM Rohtak.
“The internship helped the students develop their business acumen and acquire skills that would help them embark on their entrepreneurial journey or pursue an academic career. The healthy internship experience included classroom sessions, project work, homework, and several business development activities that helped students develop their business understanding and cultivate a scientific temperament for decision-making, ”a declared the B-School.
While the move will benefit J&K students by expanding their exposure and management skills, it could also help IIM Rohtak attract UT’s talent pool to take courses at the B-School.
