The Summer Internship Program (SIP) forms an important component of MBA program at IBS. It is an attempt to bridge the gap in the student’s perception between theory in books and practice in the corporate world. Under this, students undertake a 14 week SIP at any organization/company during the intervening period between close of Semester II and commencement of Semester III. SIP carries a weightage of 18 credits, which is normally equivalent to six courses.
The SIP, which would be a simulation of real work environment, requires students to undergo the rigor of professional environment both in form and substance. It exposes them to technical skills and helps them to acquire social skills by drawing them into contact with real professionals. Students are encouraged to take up time bound multidisciplinary and goal-oriented assignments involving team work.

At the end of the internship all the students submit a detailed report on all the cases studied, attended by him/her, duly evaluated by the advocate/faculty concerned.Moot Court

The mock trials help in understanding the requirements of the clients and prepare them in right direction.
