Student Development Office
Knowledge in action!
The role of our Student Development Office (SDO) is not only to facilitate an easy transition from school to college, but also to prepare you for life after graduation with minimum struggles. During your years of study here at CIC, we will provide you with a transformative experience that will make you always ready for your next step. We provide you with a balanced equation of success, combining academic methodologies with co-curricular activities that are relevant to your field of study.
Success is not measured based on your academic degree alone, as the degree does not guarantee you a job, it only qualifies you to apply. As the competition in the job market increases; employers won’t see you as a well-rounded candidate if you don’t have the skills & practical experience required before graduation.
We offer a comprehensive range of co-curricular activities that will help you engage and have a better understanding and recognition of the value of these practices as they guide your way to success.
CIC provided me a great chance to have summer training at Audi Bank for 3 months. I had passed by 6 departments (Finance, Trade Finance, Treasury, Risk, Corporate and Retail) which was a good opportunity to gain huge experience in different aspects of banking field and that was very useful in my studies. I’m so grateful for CIC and Development office for providing me such a chance to have the experience of the real work.
