TVS- India Internship

The TVS India Internship program, organized by the DCMME/GSCMI Center in conjunction with the TVS Motor Company, was developed in 2006. Providing a unique study abroad internship opportunity in Bangalore, India, this trip assists students in developing a global business perspective while enhancing their resume profiles. Participants have the distinctive opportunity to take concepts learned in the classroom and apply them to real life business situations. Work on this two credit course begins around mid February and culminates with a three week visit to Bangalore, India in May where students work on their projects with TVS mentors and present their final work to TVS Company representatives. Engagement in various cultural experiences are also offered through planned weekend activities (Taj Mahal etc).

The TVS internship is open to management and IE majors with a minimum achievement of a junior grade level, in good academic standing in the university. This is a working internship for the serious student who is looking to differentiate themselves from his or her peers. Students are selected based on academic standing, work experience, and exposure to international travel.
