Students at IIFT also get exposure to a wide range of live projects which are essentially live business cases floated by companies for a duration of four to eight weeks or more, wherein students get to work on these projects, guided by mentors in the company itself. The students have to submit their work at the end of their tenure, along with periodic reviews. This gives the company a chance to evaluate the students and at the same time, the students get a chance to work on a live business problem. Students at IIFT have worked on live projects with:
ITC, Philips, Accenture Strategy, MSD Pharmaceuticals, Stryker, Adani Wilmar, Nokia, Madura F&L, Future Brands, Titan Eye+, Emami, Redseer Consulting, Tata Global Beverages, Deugro and All Cargo Logistics.
Companies conduct workshops on campus as a part of their campus engagement activities which are also a way to spot talent and gauge the quality of students. Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, HSBC, Nomura, General Mills etc. have time and again conducted workshops on campus and given out PPIs based on performance in the same.
