  • Internship Embedded Program: MET PGDM (e-Business) is the first fully internship embedded program. The student will undergo two months full time internship during May & June popularly called as Summer Internship Program just like any other PGDM Institute. In addition to 2 months full time internship, MET PGDM students shall also undergo part-time internship from the beginning of the PGDM i.e. 1st trimester till the end of 6th trimester. This offers students an opportunity to apply learnings immediately in corporate world on on-going basis, leading to hands on learning, which no other PGDM program offers.
