Summer Placements in MBA is probably the most important avenue for industry exposure and practical experience that you require during MBA. However, here’s the thing – stressing over and worrying about your summer placements in MBA is extremely POINTLESS!

People often ask me how important are Summer placements in MBA. There is no doubt that summer internships are extremely important.

They in fact bring to you great opportunities to get a pre-placement offer (PPO) or a pre-placement interview (PPI) and launch your career.

But in most cases, summer internships aren’t going to be the decider of your fate. In this video, I explain to you why I think you are better off not worrying about your summer internships too much.

In fact, my course Five Steps Ahead tells you about how to depend less on your placements for the success in your career.
