New Delhi: In B-schools, students usually go to industries to get internships, but the last two months at IIM Rohtak have been a different story. The School of Management has offered a summer training program tailored to women from various universities in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) who want to become entrepreneurs.

The B-School has recruited some 64 female students and trained them on various aspects of entrepreneurship – from how to raise funds in consulting, to writing a business plan to communicating with start-up founders.

The unique program allowed these students to spend six to eight weeks on the B-School campus to learn entrepreneurship and management skills.

Dhiraj Sharma, Director, IIM Rohtak, said that nurturing women talents who are likely to become entrepreneurs and future academics is one of the best ways to help in the further development of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Internships have helped students develop their business skills and learn the skills that will help them advance in their entrepreneurial journey or build an academic career. The B-School said the healthy internship experience includes classroom sessions, project work, assignments and a number of business development activities that helped students develop a business understanding and a scientific disposition to make decisions.

The move will benefit students from Jammu and Kashmir to enhance their connectivity and management skills, but IIM Rohtak can also help attract a pool of talent from UT for B-school courses.
