B-Schools and industry, which for long had been operating in separate domains, are rapidly inching closer to create synergies. PCTE recognizes these constantly evolving management paradigms and in response has identified means of further strengthening academia-industry partnerships.
Grand Thursday is a flexible ongoing industrial internship for the student, where he/she goes and works with a single organization of his/her interest once a week throughout the two years of their program. This activity helps the students to get opportunities to interact and get mentored from eminent industry giants and skilled professionals. It also helps students to understand what the market expects from them.
All the students of MBA and PGDM are a part of this activity, and they are allocated to industries according to their chosen area of specialization. The activity helps students greatly in career development, developing leadership qualities & management skills and making them aware of actual industry functioning.
