INKOMPASS is a unique 2 cycle Internship at PMI which enables students to discover themselves through challenges and cultural diversity. This internship program is open to 2nd year students. It is a four step process; online application, online 20 minutes test, assessment center and final selection. It is a global program and is run across PMI operation countries in the world.

Our student, Hamza Arshad of BS Accounting & Finance (Batch 2K14) got selected in INKOMPASS Program in year 2016 after rigorous testing and efforts. He served as an Intern for 6 weeks in their corporate office, Karachi. Based upon his hard work and competitive evaluation, he was selected for the 2nd cycle of internship for year 2017. He was given Level 2 tasks as an Intern and also went for market visits with Sales Teams. By looking at his tremendous performance, positive approach and analytical skills, he was nominated and selected for PMI INKOMPASS Global INCHALLANGE 2017 to be held in PMI Headquarters, Switzerland from 18th till 22nd September, 2017. 500+ interns contested for the INCHALLANGE nomination from across the globe. 

INCHALLANGE is a platform that tests interns’ talents and wits against their peers in a live business environment, on a global level. It’s a race of the great minds where each one is unique; each one is worth competing with. This year, 24 chosen INKOMPASS interns from across the globe got cracking on a business case and pitched live to the top brass of PMI in Switzerland. They are formed into teams along with PMI employees.

We are very proud to announce that Hamza and his team banged the 1st Prize in the PMI INKOMPASS Global INCHALLANGE 2017 in Switzerland. His team member was an intern from Mexico along with four PMI Employees. It was a rigorous exercise of a week followed by market research and study.
