Corporate Training & International Internship
Wrest Corp’s International Internship Programme for Global Apprentice gives students exciting international work experiences to work for Fortune 500 and NASDAQ featured companies for 3 months in Canada, Mexico, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, UAE, Vietnam, Cuba and few other European countries.
While students gain practical experience with some of words leading conglomerates, the organizations which host international students benefit by getting smart interns with new perspectives & outlooks especially from India and China. These internships are around 3 months, mostly unpaid, but few deserving students on certain projects, also get paid according to local laws.
International Internship & Placement Opportunity for MBA Students in INDIA
Which are the leading B Schools in Delhi? Why B Schools in Delhi offering PGDM programmes like IMT, IIFT, Fore, LBSIM etc attract higher remuneration than some of other prominent b schools? Are recruiters in India stigmatized with certain b schools, thus overlooking brighter students in other b schools?
One of the major factors that gives a great edge to students from prominent b schools is the corporate interface, which includes guests lectures, corporate mentors and most importantly rigorous 3 month internship programme with leading organizations where students are expected deliver results, and not just complete a mere formality.
So far, it’s been only the elite Indian B schools like the IIM’s, XLRI, etc., which provided international internships to its student which gave them tactical edge over other students, thus attracting higher remunerations.
Even some of Top B schools in Delhi providing MBA and PGDM programs like IMT Ghaziabad, LBSIM, BIMTECH, Fore etc don’t provide this International Internship.
Now Wrest Corporation, a leading Canadian based firm has is all set to provide International Internship Programme to over 100 bright students every year, which was traditionally restricted to the IIM’s only.
This global apprentice international programme will be delivered with Fortune 500 and NASDAQ featured companies in US, Canada, Mexico, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, UAE, Vietnam, and few European countries.
While students gain practical experience with some of world’s leading conglomerates, the organizations which host international students benefit by getting smart interns with new perspectives & outlooks. These internships are around 3 months, mostly unpaid, but 10% of students on certain projects, also get paid.
Now it would be possible for students to work from brands that we have only heard of like General Motors, Ford, Microsoft, Hilton, Goldman Sachs, British American Tobacco etc in their Corporate Offices.
There are lakhs of students who complete their MBA programme each year, but getting a good job remains a challenge. Most of the Tier 2 and Tier 3 B schools only offer an average package of 3-4 lacs, despite high claims.
The rationale for low remuneration could be that Industry is in dire need of skilled manpower which most of B schools have not been able to address. Recruiting untrained and inexperienced MBA students adds to the training & development costs of companies which organizations are now trying to cut.
This international internship programme not only helps students to gain work experience with Fortune 500 Companies, but also provides them with vital corporate skills that have potential to get them in the same league at the IIM’s and other prominent b schools.

Set a Target:
