The course units are prepared to comply with the National Occupational Standards of the UK ensuring that the students studying the course are job / industry ready. Additionally the students are encouraged to undertake primary and secondary research cases to gather relevant industry data. Industrial visits, company open day sessions add to the student’s knowledge about the industry. Students engage with industry experts during “Industry - Academia Interaction Series” through webinars and seminars.

Careers360: What role do you think internships play in grooming the students, how does MET help students get the best out of the same?

Dr. Seema Tatwawadi: We focus on empirical pedagogy and believe that there are certain managerial competencies which can’t be taught in the classrooms. The internships provide real-life experience and exposure to students and help in developing managerial competencies. Internship boosts the confidence of the candidate and gets the students ready for the future job/career.

It stimulates teamwork and responsibility, develops adaptability during the pressure situations and sparks the problem-solving skills in a candidate. The internship provides a great learning curve to interns and makes them ready for a professional career.
