Live Projects
Companies like First Rand bank, Accenture, IDFC Institute, Net Core, Aon Hewitt, Observer Research Foundation, Deloitte and Axis bank have employed our students for live projects. At MDAE, our approach to learning is highly rigorous and practical. Hence our aim is to provide students with internship opportunities and have corporate tie-ups that ensure our students have a first hand perspective on what their options would be after completing the course. Some examples of the live projects out students are engaged in are: First Rand Bank – Analysis of the Consumer Durables Industry Students are preparing a sector research report covering over 15 verticals within the Indian Consumer Durables industry such as paints, pipes, etc. They are analyzing various operational and financial metrics and also identifying niche companies for fundraising and acquisition opportunities.
