Placement Cell (MBA)


PRO: A Training & Placement cell

To bring all Training and Placement activities under a single umbrella, the Placement Cell at CPIMR has conceptualized PRO – Placement Readiness and Orientation. PRO, since its inception, has been working constantly towards providing students with an opportunity to do meaningful and lucrative work. The cell organizes seminars and workshops on career-related matters, provides internship opportunities, and conducts PRO Placement Sessions from time to time.



"Their intellect, dedication, and innovative mindset have been nurtured through a rigorous curriculum, practical exposure, and experiential learning opportunities. By embracing a holistic approach to education, we strive to produce graduates who possess technical expertise and strong interpersonal skills."

Prof (Dr) Abhinava S. Singh

Director, CPIMR


Institute's Initiatives

ASAP - Advanced Skill Acquisition Program

The Institute provides an opportunity for students to work in the industry for short-duration finite projects in order to enhance their learning and improve their managerial skills. Companies like Aditya Birla Group, Decathlon, and Big Bazaar regularly recruit students for such internships. 


TEAM – Towards Excellence in Academics and Management

To keep students abreast of the latest developments and innovations in the field of management, the Institute organizes academic events – seminars, workshops, symposiums, etc. – under the banner of TEAM. Various resource persons from across the industries are invited to interact with the students.


CPIMR Case Center

CPIMR Casse center, established in 2019, is an initiative by Chimanbhai Patel Institute of Management & Research (CPIMR) to promote writing and teaching cases as an integral part of the management curriculum.


PRO-Placement Readiness and Orientation

The placement team organizes the PRO by industry experts to share their views and advice with management students. Such sessions help students to start their corporate journey with expert knowledge and help the students to be industry-ready. PRO also includes practical learning through workshops like Excel, Canva, grooming and Personality development, etc, seminars/webinars from the experts from diverse domains, industry visits, etc to make students understand the industry expectations.


Summer Internship

After the second semester, students undergo the summer internship program (SIP) for 6 to 8 weeks. To facilitate this process, the institute organizes a SIP recruitment drive. During the drive, companies either visit the campus or organize a selection process at their location. Most of companies offer the students a pre-placement offer at the time of completion of the internship. Thus, SIP is linked to the placements.




Orientation: To make students aware of the placement procedure, the team organizes an orientation session for semester 3 students. The session encompasses an industry overview and job profiles, CPIMR placement procedures, and PRO

Pre-Placement Talk: This is an arrangement for interaction between the students and the company representatives, where information regarding the company profile, JD, industry aspect etc are made available to the students. 

Placement Interviews: After providing a list of candidates to the company, a final step of the selection process begins. Students can prepare for the interview. At the time of an interview, the company will discuss the role in detail helping the candidate make the right choice.

Final Offer: After completion of the interviews, the company makes an offer to selected candidates via placement cell mentioning the agreed upon terms and condition
