Dr. D. Y. Patil B-School has a comprehensive placement training programme in place. The training starts right on the first day of academics and continues till the students get a placement. The training includes skill assessment test, group discussions, corporate seminars and panel interview round. The curriculum has been designed in line with the needs of the industry to make the students industry-ready.
Several rounds on on- placements are conducted. Several of those rounds are screening rounds to select the students who give the best performance. The students who have the best performance appear for the final interview.
Here is an overview of the different placement training given to the students.
Skill assessment test – assessment is usually an aptitude-based test that helps determine the reasoning and analytical abilities of a student. This is part of the curriculum and is conducted within the academic structure from the first semester to prepare the students for the first round of placement.
Industry-relevant curriculum – The curriculum is developed based on the reverse system approach and conforms to the AICTE framework. This helps develop industry-relevant post-graduate programs in management. The programs have been designed with close collaboration with the association of companies. This helps make the students ready for the industry as well as develop their careers. The needs of the industry are assessed through continued interaction with companies who share their job specifications. The program educational objectives are then planned to meet the job specifications.
Corporate seminars – Seminars and workshops provide a chance to interact with experts from the specific field. Discussing the relevant topics of the particular subject, students tend to learn about the latest information and new skills related to the concerned subject. As a result of genuine interest shown by the students to know and learn about the subject, they research about the particular topic with the help of expert guidance and land in their conclusion after a careful investigation, experiment, and simulation. At Dr. D.Y. Patil B-School we conduct regular corporate sessions where renowned corporates from distinguished corporates visit us to connect with our students.
Group discussions – Group discussions are conducted at regular intervals to assess the communication skills, leadership skills, management skills, team-building skills, social skills, problem-solving skills and presence of mind of the students. Based on their performance, professional trainers helps the students enhance their skill sets with regular activities.
Mock panel interview – Mock panel interviews are conducted to prepare the students for the actual interviews. Panels of professional recruiting managers interview the potential candidates face-to-face. The panels consist of experts from the corporate world. Separate sessions are conducted for the technical aspects and the HR aspects to prepare the students for their final placement.
