There are three ways in which we will build our industry connect.
First, by creating a curriculum filled with opportunities to learn from leading practitioners through projects, internships and an ongoing lecture series.
Second, by leveraging the influential networks of our Governing and Advisory councils, comprising senior business leaders.
And third, by tapping into the extensive alumni network of BITS Pilani numbering over 55,000 with over 4,200+ founders and 3,000+ CEOs. Students of BITSoM will be in a unique position of being a founding class with access to a vast alumni network.
Summer internships at BITSoM are an opportunity for you to go out into the world of business and solve real challenges faced by organizations. They also present you with a platform to showcase your ability to apply all that you have learnt in your exciting first year at BITSoM. And as you get the opportunity to work with and learn from the best in the industry, they are a great vantage point for recruiters to evaluate you for final placements.
BITSoM’s founding class has achieved 100% summer internship placements. The students have received offers from some of the coveted leading organisations including Bain & Co, Kearney, Arthur D Little, Deloitte, PwC, EY, Korn Ferry (Hay Group), Hindustan Unilever, Tata Consumer, Beiersdorf (Nivea), Pidilite, The Hershey Company, Aditya Birla Group, Cisco, Tata Capital, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Cervin Ventures (a Silicon Valley-based VC fund) and ICICI Prudential AMC among others.

BITSoM complies with all COVID related guidelines and protocols as specified by the government to ensure the highest standards of health and safety for its students, faculty, and staff. Current government regulations do not allow for physical in-person classes in Mumbai and therefore all classes are being held online. Our interim campus in Mumbai is fully ready and functional. As soon as physical in-person classes are permitted, we will commence these at our campus.
While completely adhering to government regulations, we also do not want to compromise on peer learning. Therefore, BITSoM student residences in Mumbai have been made operational, and our students have been given the option of staying at the facility. All students who wish to stay at the student residences must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and adhere to the COVID guidelines as issued by the government.
