What are the various ways of assessing students?
The Career & development cell at MICA provides advice and assistance to the recruiters throughout the hiring process. Recruiters are also invited on campus to give informal talks and lectures to students and provide an opportunity to interact with them.
Through MLS, industry professionals are invited to deliver talks on current managerial and business issues thereby facilitating knowledge transfer as well as effecting fruitful interactions with the batch. This provides an opportunity for recruiters to evaluate students and their understanding of concepts of marketing and its applied fields, additionally giving a recruiter to observe the campus, its infrastructure and gauge the overall potential of the students.
Recruiters are invited to offer projects to the students of MICA through the student research and consultancy cell - MICAMINDS. Clients have expressed satisfaction and have consistently shown interest in involving the students in additional projects. Several companies have assessed the capabilities of students as managers through the MICAMINDS projects.
Recruiters are also invited to participate with MICA through its Annual Brand Management Festival – MICANVAS, a forum that brings together industry professionals and students on a common platform, so as to enhance their interaction and mutually benefit all the stakeholders, i.e. the institute, the students and the industry. This is reflected in the design of the events, based on the requirements of companies who choose to partner with MICANVAS. Further, the panel discussion at MICANVAS brings in some of the best corporate personalities, who share their knowledge with students and give them the perspective of the industry.
