Samsung India Electronics Pvt Ltd (SIEL) has entered into a pact with the IIM Ahmedabad to provide scholarships to the top five meritorious students of the first year batch of the Post Graduate Program me(PGP). A Memorandum of Association (MoU) outlining the terms has been entered into IIM-A and Samsung. The move has been taken to encourage students to shift their focus from the service sector to the manufacturing sector.
As per the Samsung Scholarship Programme, 60-70 per cent of tuition fees will be sponsored by the company for the second year of the selected five students. The students will also have the opportunity to meet the company’s senior management members. The students of IIM-A, who will participate for the selection of scholarship, will be evaluated on three grounds: first year’s score, leadership skills, and conceptual and interpersonal skills.
