Placement for our batch wasn't very fulfilling. The companies like genisis, Reuters, NDTV, Ad Factors, Social Panga etc. There is a alumni group of the entire university which gives you update about vacancy in their respective companies

The alumni network at Manipal Institute of Communication is quite solid. We do get a bunch of internship opportunities & placement opportunities based on alumni recommendations. However I can't say much about this as I do not have first hand experience since my batch hasnt had the opportunity to sit for placements yet.
Yes placements are very good a lot of companies come to our College like Biju's, Viacom, Wizcraft and many more. They do provide interships, you can be an intern for the college or the faculty will get you an intership according to your portfolio.
Though I personally still haven't sat for any placement sessions (as I'm still in the first year), the placements go really well and almost all the students get good jobs. Well known companies come every year.
The first and second years aren't entitled to placements just as yet. The theirs years recently were given internships for Calvin Klein and more. Due to the knowledge provided by MIC, I believe that good placements are ready to be handed over to the students.
Our college does provide internships during the semester break. Placements are also being provided. The highest package for placements was said to provide 6-7 where as till date no company has offered more than 4 lakhs.
Around 10/11 companies come for jobs which is decent for a batch of 100 students. There is a minimum cap on the salary being offered and students are usually not allowed to sit for placements if they are already places unless its from a select few companies which come under a dream list. Some of the companies which hire regularly are Reuters, Adfactors and Viacom 18, Radio Mirch and Vedanta also hired people last year.
Internship is compulsory for students after the second year, before the start if their final year but most of the students try and intern every semester- sometimes in different streams of the media industry to get an experience on what is it that they actually like. But despite this the college doesn't help students find internships. When absolutely desperate sometimes teachers may hook students up with mediocre internship opportunities.
Placement scenario is stressed upon right from the time we join the college. There is a separate placement cell and all. All the students, who registered for placements got placed in one company or the other. We get a lot of help preparing for the placements during the college years. The average placement package is not declared so I don't know about it. Major companies who came recruiting were Reuters, Cognizant, Viacom18, Goldman Sachs, Adfactorts, and Edelman. Overall, you really won't be disappointed about the placements in Manipal!
The college helped its students in finding internships. The benefit of having internship experiences for placements was a stress right from the start. A lot of students worked while at college that way. Average stipend given was around 10-15k. Mostly the experience was good. We learned more about our course and its scope and all from journalism internships. Such experiences were really helpful in getting placed
I haven't been placed yet because I'm in the first year and first semester.
As this is my first semester, I haven't had any internship experience.
Thanks for your valuable feedback. Our team will look into it.
