Careers360 presents B-School Internship Experience 2016, where MBA students of top management institutes share their experiences, learning from their projects, and the importance of internship as a part of the curriculum.

In this feature, students of Prin. LN Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research, Mumbai, popularly known as WeSchool share their internship projects along with their key learning. The students completed their internships from Digital Impact Square (DISQ), a TCS innovation, on individual projects.

DISQ is a TCS social platform that provides scope for research and encourages innovation using digital technologies. Students from WeSchool went through a rigorous Bootcamp to get selected for the internship process. Based on their performance in the Bootcamp projects, students were selected to be a part of DISQ projects as innovators.

The projects they were assigned at DISQ were all social initiatives, where they had to assist the research work on the social issues, identify the challenges and bring out the solutions.

Read internship experiences of students below:

Pragathi Shetty

Project Name: 100 percent immunization (A social initiative)

Project Executive Summary: Ensuring 100% immunization is one of the critical problems of India and other developing countries. We had to analyze the challenge assisted by the existing research and meet the stake holders like medical officers, midwives, mothers and our facilitators at Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), mentors and work out on the solutions.

 

Challenges: The key challenge was the complexity of the problems, contradiction in the available data, and at times lack of information on certain aspects. Another challenge was to identify those deviant populations who were in the negative zone of immunization.

 

Learning: Working towards solving a social problem is never easy. But if you work sincerely and follow the guidelines to diagnose the problem, it helps configure effective solutions.

Poulami Chatterjee

Project Name: Institutional Delivery

 

Executive Summary: Ensuring 100% institutional delivery so as to decrease maternal & infant deaths. It is one of the critical problems faced by the developing countries in the world. We analyzed the challenge by going to research papers and meeting the stake holders.

 

Challenges: Complex and unstructured health ecosystem made it difficult to zero-in on the root cause. Insufficient data, at times and the inherent anomalies added to our challenges. Issues like non-identification of high risk cases in early stages of pregnancy. Leveraging digital technologies to provide an inclusive healthcare system was another challenge.

 

Learning: I learnt how to handle tough situations and problems through design thinking. Also, I learnt how to approach a problem from different perspectives before crafting a solution. Research, data, information ground realities can at times be contrasting. We learnt how to get down to the roots of a problem.

Aishwarya Nileshwar

Project: Crime Detection and Distress Calling and Response time

 

Executive Summary: The team had undergone 3 months of ground work to understand the problems of Nashik city in terms of crimes as well as overall safety of the city. Our research helped us understand that for crime to be resolved we need not just have a smart police system but also smart citizens. And we are here to inform, innovate and impact the lives of these key stakeholders.

 

Learning: The key learning is the art of shuttling between a worm’s eye view (micro-aspects of the project) and a bird’s eye (macro-aspects of the project) view of a project.

Sagar Jadhav

Project: Implement a definite Supply chain

 

Executive Summary: Our project consists of the challenges faced by the farmers. Our team is F2P.Inc .i.e. Farm to Plate and we have to work for the farmer so that he gets good price for the produce he is selling. We intend to make his procedure more efficient and even have a pricing strategy for the consumers as well.

 

Challenges: Thinking on a solution is very easy but with the constraints like

  • Ignorant to the technologies in this world

  • Lack of knowledge of the current system

  • Particular mind-set of these farmers

  • Our core stakeholders farmers are ignorant to change

  • Distance was a big issue to manage for primary research.

  • Lack of proper transportation during research.
