MAS Holdings, Deutsche Bank & Dialog search for the next batch
MAS Holdings, Deutsche Bank & Dialog Telekom are on the lookout for their next batch of exceptional interns to join their annual Summer Internship Program, commencing July 2008. This joint initiative is rated one of the best internship programs in the island and has been able to achieve for international standards since its inception, according to a statement issued by MAS.
The company launched its Summer Internship program in 2004 with the objective of giving Sri Lankan students exposure to career opportunities available at home. In 2005, Deutsche Bank partnered MAS’ initiative to help Sri Lanka retain local talent. In 2007, the two companies were joined by Dialog Telekom when they opened doors to allow interns to gain insight into their operations. To date 45 students have undergone the internship.
The program entails a two week familiarization period in which the interns will gain an overview of the three companies, followed by a 2-3 weeks focused project at one of the three companies. Upon completion of the project, each intern will be presenting their learning’s, experiences and suggestions to senior leadership panel of MAS, Deutsche and Dialog. In 2007 internship presentations were made to Mahesh Amalean (Chairman – MAS Holdings) Stefan Mahrdt (Country Manager – Deutsche Bank), and Dr. Hans Wijayasuriya (Chief Executive – Dialog Telekom).
