The Tata Global Internships program is open to students of all nationalities who are currently pursuing a college or university degree outside India at any level of study — in any discipline, and at any stage of the course.
We are looking for students with a good academic record, but more importantly, those who demonstrate excellent learning agility and a keen interest in exploring different facets of themselves. Our past participants have come from Harvard, INSEAD, Yale, MIT, Cornell, LSE, Cambridge, NUS, NTU, Bocconi, IESE and many more.
Offering a holistic work experience of 6 to 12 weeks at the Tata group, an industry leader with a conscience.
This is not a program where you watch and learn, this is a program where you do and grow!
You will be expected to cut your teeth on live business projects, working both individually and within teams. There will be well-defined and specific projects from Tata group companies, most of which will wrap up towards the end of the program.
Don’t worry, we will not throw you into the deep end of the pool without a life jacket! There will be excellent support and mentorship provided to you by your project mentor and team, which will culminate in a final presentation with your findings and recommendations.
Then there’s Mentor Connect, where you get one-on-one time with a mentor of your choice from across the group, and pick up some useful tips and tricks on your project, your career goals and just about anything else.
We believe in customized projects, where one size does not fit all. You can work on group or individual projects, as part of a co-op, course or ‘capstone’, and at various times of the year.
You can incubate your business ideas as part of the program, taking the first step towards realizing your entrepreneurial dream, with ample advice, resources, mentorship and counseling from project leaders.
It’s not all work, though. You may be working from home, but there’s still plenty of excitement and fun to be had. Take part in fun online games and quirky bonding activities, like Person Roulette, where you are teamed up every week with a fellow participant, randomly. By the end of the program, you’re bound to have made some really good connections.
You will also get a taste of India with virtual social and cultural immersions, conducted by experts. Our past participants have enjoyed boogying to Bollywood beats, exploring the benefits of Yoga, and more.
Applications are closed for the Summer 2021 program. Watch this space for details about the next intake.
Work From Anywhere
Because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, TGI 2021 will be conducted virtually. If you can’t come to us, we will come to you!
From next year, we hope to resume in-person programs, where the participants will come and live in Mumbai and other project locations in India during the course of the program.
A Billion Possibilities
As a TGI participant, you get to work on projects embedded in one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, poised to become the third-largest by 2030. At the same time, India is still an emerging market. This throws up its own set of opportunities and challenges. Problem-solving for a billion — yes, a billion — people and counting, which has a direct impact on the global economy, provides a uniquely rich learning experience.
Working at Tata helps you build strong networks within the group and with mentors and peers across the world. The TGI fellowship is a life membership into an exclusive club.
With 30 companies spanning 10 business verticals within the Tata group, there is a wide range of project areas to choose from — automobiles to artificial intelligence, hospitality to sustainability. We will find you the right fit to complement your skill sets and your dreams. You might even fall in love with a field of work you’d never dreamed of before!
Our participants have been involved in projects like re-engineering the branded customer experience for Tata Motors globally, creating a business plan for a members-only club at Taj Hotels, and understanding Tata Consumer's climate strategy to recommend improvements. The diversity of roles you can pick from across our flagship companies is quite enormous — Data Analytics, Biotech Engineering, Brand Communications and Marketing, Finance, Strategy Consulting and lots more.
