Summer Internship Program
Knowledge, Initiative & Talent Excellence Series (KITES) is ITC's Summer Internship Programme designed to provide tomorrow's leaders a unique platform to learn, experience, and manage real business situations.
KITES is a one-of-its-kind programme. Students are given the opportunity to experience the rigours of actual work and live business scenarios, apply their theoretical learnings 'on the job' and gain precious insights into management, leadership, and everyday challenges. KITES works both ways - while students get to intern with one of ITC's businesses and understand the core process of value-creation, we get re-energised by a host of new ideas, fresh perspectives, and compelling observations brought to the table.
Internships are offered for two months each year. KITES is a critical platform that enables us to identify exceptional talent from the best institutes in India who have the potential to become the next generation of leaders at ITC. Interns are awarded Pre-Placement Offers of Employment based on their performance during the internship.
- Mind Over Matter
- Selection Process
- Campus Ambassador
- KITES 2022
As a precursor to the KITES internship, an orientation programme called 'Mind Over Matter' is organised for all the interns. The programme aims at providing interns with a better understanding of ITC, how best to approach the internship, and an opportunity to meet with ITC's leadership. Interactions during the orientation are designed to provide insights that enable the interns to apply their academic learning more effectively to real-life work challenges. The focus is on making the summer internships more meaningful, both for the student and the organisation.
For KITES, ITC selects interns from premier management campuses across the country. We offer projects in the following fields:
- Human Resources
- Supply Chain/Operations
- Environment, Health and Safety
Projects are carefully selected to offer interns an experience of real-life business problems/situations that foster an enhanced appreciation of business complexities, besides providing a detailed insight into their chosen functional domain.
The two-month internship comes with tremendous opportunities to learn and make things happen, to create a real and everlasting impact.
For KITES, ITC recruits interns from premier technical campuses across the country. We offer projects in the following fields:
- Process Excellence / Six Sigma Projects
- Product Development
Internship projects pertain to the core engineering fields - Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical. At times, based on specific requirements, other specialisations are also included.
The projects are carefully chosen to offer interns real-life business problems that enable a better appreciation of business complexities while also providing them with in-depth knowledge in the preferred functional domain.
There are the following stages to the selection of interns under KITES:
Step I: Application Screening
Interested students from premier campuses are invited to apply to us. An ideal candidate aspiring for an internship opportunity must possess the right mix of academic achievements and co-curricular excellence. We look for students who can think creatively, work in teams, convert adversity into opportunities and lead through ambiguous situations. Candidates must have demonstrated leadership across various spheres of their student life. As our operations are spread across cities and rural settings, we prefer candidates who are open to the idea of working in locations that could be remote and culturally distinct from their own.
Step II: Group Activity
Candidates are then invited to participate in a group activity. This activity provides us insights into the candidate's ability to lead, influence, communicate and work as a team member to achieve the desired results - all essential skills for a successful manager and emerging leader.
Step III: Personal Interaction
Candidates selected through the group activity, are invited for personal interaction with some of ITC's senior managers, allowing us the opportunity to understand the candidate's depth of functional knowledge, general awareness, and the overall fit with our core values, besides gaining a better understanding of the candidate's background and attributes like leadership, teamwork and the ability to succeed.
Each step presents us with a unique opportunity to get to know them better, and we look forward to the same!

Management Trainee Program
Assistants Under Training, commonly known as AUTs, are students of premier engineering and management institutes who choose to pursue their careers with ITC, straight after they graduate from their institute. AUTs are inducted into the ITC system with the objective of nurturing and grooming them to be the leaders of tomorrow. From the day an AUT joins ITC, we ensure that necessary inputs are provided in terms of managerial development, cross functional and cross business exposure, and in-depth functional experience in order to develop domain expertise, equip them with the knowledge and skills required to perform their roles, as well as, lay the foundation for their growth and development as business leaders. AUTs undergo training for a period of 6 to 9 months and in a period of 1 year, they are confirmed as Assistant Managers.
- Management Campuses
- Technology Campuses
- AUT 2022
Upon joining ITC, AUTs are taken through a corporate induction programme wherein they are introduced to the various Businesses and functions. The induction programme is also aimed at facilitating a smooth transition from campus to the corporate world as well as to provide an opportunity to interact with business leaders. On the whole, the programme aims at giving AUTs an appreciation of what defines ITC, how ITC works and touches lives.
Once AUTs join their respective businesses, they go through a division and function specific detailed induction programme which provides them with a thorough overview of the business model of the division, introduces them to various functions within the business, and gives them an extensively detailed insight into their own function. The induction programme is supported by projects and stints which helps them to grasp the various nuances of the business and, at the same time, contribute to the growth of the Company.
ITC recruits from premier management campuses across the country for its requirements in Marketing, Human Resources, Supply Chain/Operations etc. The diversity in ITC's businesses - superior brand building capabilities, unmatched supply chain, experience in working in new and established businesses, added to the large employee base and operations spread across the length and breadth of the country - offers management AUTs a unique and unparalleled experience.
Budding Engineers from select IITs and NITs join ITC, and a world of the latest technology, state of the art machines is thrown open to them. With operations spread over the country ranging from factories in Paper and Paperboards, FMCG and Agri to new projects in these businesses, ITC is, undoubtedly, an engineer's paradise. Responsibilities begin early with exposure to projects, production planning, product quality, product development, tracking financials, state of the art machines and people leadership, making ITC one of the most challenging, rewarding and enriching experience.
