The Corporate Internship Program (CIP) at FIIB is a rigorous 12 week engagement with the corporate world where each student gets a hand-on experience of working with a company in the preferred area of specialization and career track.
The challenges thrown by the situation of lockdown due to the on-going pandemic didn’t have much of an effect on the internship selection and on-boarding process as both we at FIIB and also our CIP partner organisations were already equipped with the process and technological tools to run the process smoothly on the virtual mode.
