In addition to a student’s academic performance, this Professional Assessment will help employers assess the student on desired workplace competencies such as analysing and problem-solving, working well with others, adapting to change etc.
3. Faculty Internship: A four to six weeks of learning process in a business environment provides opportunities for the faculty to correlate theory with practical application, in turn making teaching relevant to the industry and augmenting the realism of the classroom course.
