  1. Management‐In‐Practice / Field Work and internships

The project assignment with organizations (Management-in-Practice or MIP/Fieldwork) has three components. A 60 day fieldwork (MIP Phase 1) after term 3 introduces the student to an organizational/business setting. During the eight week summer project (MIP Phase 2) after term 3, real life managerial issues confronted by organizations are identified, analyzed and discussed by the students. Most projects involve a large component of field work. The student is usually attached to a project guide from industry, to help him complete this stage. Possible solutions to the problems are arrived at, and presented to the organizations for implementation. A member of the faculty works as a guide for a group of students, and co-ordinates such analysis and discussions. During MIP Phase 3 the student is required to to do business scan for 30 days. In both the presentation and the report are evaluated by a committee.

  1. Business Scan (Research & Innovation Skills)

Business Scan is market research fair, and is organized by TAXILA Students. Students seek out companies which have certain market research objectives, and wish to conduct the market research and obtain relevant information. The fair is organized so as to take advantage of the unique demographic profile of the local populace. The students conduct the data collection in creative ways, and analyze and interpret the results for the client companies. It is expected that students take keen interest and associate with various tasks related to Business Scan during the second year of study at the institute and later pick up the two credit elective course on Business Scan during their second year. Business Scan is a compulsory course for students specializing in the Marketing area.
