Jaipuria’s IMP – Chisel teams carve out some glowing reports.

Jaipuria Institute of Management students participating in the Industry Mentorship Program (IMP – Chisel) have carved out an excellent name for themselves among employers.

Under the IMP – Chisel program, students interact directly with industry, working on live projects for about 15 days per trimester along with peer, industry and faculty mentors.

This direct hands-on experience in industry allows students to put their classroom learning to the test with practical experience, helping turn them into management professionals.

Four businesses which recently took on Jaipuria students under the IMP – Chisel program had nothing but good to say about the experience.

Sayaji Hotels Limited, which operates a restaurant called Kebabsville, asked students to tackle the problem it faced with customer wait times.

Kebabsville has a seating capacity of around 200, but during weekends the traffic increases greatly and because seating can’t be increased due to space constraints, the average waiting period for customers grows.
