Jamia Millia Islamia Secures 100% Internship Placement For MSc Students
Jamia Millia Islamia University has secured 100 per cent internship placement for its students of MSc Banking and Financial Analytics.
All 42 students of MSc Banking and Financial Analytics at Jamia Millia Islamia University have been offered internships at various Indian banks. Many students have been given internships at nationalised banks. The University is expecting that these internships would open opportunities for the students for final placements and help them prepare for the job environment. The University also said that newly inducted programmes on Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security in the curriculum have enhanced the employability of the students.
Prof Halima Sadia Rizvi, Head of Department of Economics said that “The entire fourth semester of the Programme is devoted to an internship with a view that the students can have the practical experience and are groomed enough so that they are fully ready for their smooth final placement with no cultural shock”.
JMI Vice Chancellor Prof Najma Akhtar appreciated the efforts put in by the Department of Economics for successfully launching and running this programme. While congratulating the heads and professors involved she remarked: “It will further enhance the image of the Department of Economics and the Jamia Millia Islamia alike”.
Explaining the importance of these banking internships, Prof Shahid Ashraf who is one of the faculty members of the economics department said, “Bank has an important role in monetary policy and economic development, which is going to be more important in future. The programme is designed with this vision and our understanding with Indian banks is a win-win strategy beneficial for both, and the luckiest lot is the students of the batch”.
