Manama, July 4, 2013
Servcorp Bahrain, a provider of serviced office solutions, has teamed up with Bahrain Polytechnic to offer summer internship to eligible students.
Servcorp agreed to have two third year Business School students attend a six-week marketing internship programme in order to exhibit and further sharpen their industry skills and expertise.
Laudy Lahdo, Servcorp general manager for the Middle East and Turkey, said: “This Servcorp experiential curriculum will offer the immense prospect of gaining an insightful understanding of both daily and short-term business operations of a multinational organization.
“The programme was inspired by Servcorp’s commitment to corporate social responsibility by developing the new generation of Bahrain and providing an information platform for developing international business excellence.”
The experience will allow the interns valuable exposure to the company’s international standards in preparation for today’s dynamic business climate. Emphasis will be on four elements: market research and analysis, business development, marketing strategy and sales as well as management.
The combination will supplement the interns’ university core courses, while enhancing their business wisdom and interpersonal skills.
Cormac MacMahon, Dean of Bahrain Polytechnic Business School, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our business students to get hands-on experience and training in their chosen profession.
"Partnering with reputable companies such as Servcorp fits with the Polytechnic’s Business School’s mission to develop highly skilled work ready graduates that meet the needs of the Bahraini labour market. This type of partnership between the Business School and industry is an important step in developing the young Bahraini business leaders of the future.”
Upon successful completion of the academic activities and practical requirements, Servcorp Bahrain will issue an official certificate to attest to each intern’s dedication and efforts. – TradeArabia News Service
