Vedanta Limited, India’s leading global diversified natural resources company, has launched its ‘Global Internship Program’ with 10 students from top ranked global business schools, diverse backgrounds and nationalities. The students will assist senior management for intense, fast-paced and holistic projects across the company’s global businesses. The Global Internship Program engages with the Harvard Business School, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the London Business School, along with other high ranked institutions.
“Vedanta’s Global Internship Program (GIP) is designed for high achievers to apply their academic knowledge, analysis and business acumen to some of the most challenging projects, in a real-life environment. The program provides students with an excellent platform to enrich their overall B-School experience and get exposure to diverse cultural and international locations. The GIP is structured in a way which will empower the students to gain tremendous exposure working across our operations, within India and globally, at corporate offices and plant locations, with our top leaders to get a flavor of both the worlds”, says Mr. Suresh Bose, Head Human Resources, Vedanta Limited.
The first batch of students commence their projects on 16 June 2016. The selected candidates will work in their respective roles for a duration of 6-12 weeks each. Every internship program is designed with well-defined project deliverables and target outcomes. The interns will spend time collaborating and partnering with leaders across the organization to learn about Vedanta’s businesses and identify creative ways to approach situations.
The interns will be mentored throughout the internship and their progress monitored. In order to drive meaningful impacts to the business, interns will be able to pursue excellence and identify opportunities to leverage their expertise. At Vedanta, they will experience a healthy work life balance along with networking and enjoying a unique diverse culture.
