BCA is pleased to offer credit-bearing internship placements in a variety of disciplines through our Chennai, India program. This is an opportunity to get beyond the classroom and fully integrate into Indian society. The internships are supervised by a faculty member at Madras Christian College (MCC) in conjunction with a supervisor at the local agency or business where students intern. BCA Chennai students complete internships with local non-profit or community-based organizations or businesses in the city of Chennai and in the vicinity of the college in an area called Tambaram. The internship opportunity is a valuable experience for students and offers an inside view of how organizations respond to the socio-economic challenges facing Indian society or how businesses operate in the Indian economy.

The internship schedule for BCA students is based on the time table of the two courses students select. Students will be able to select one agency or business from a list of four to six options that students visit at the beginning of the semester. BCA works with students to match their placement interests with identified agencies or businesses once they are accepted into the program. Internships are available in a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, the ones listed below.
