Internships in Mumbai

Internships in Mumbai are among the best career building opportunities in Asia, coupled with a chance to engage in a bouquet of horizon expanding experiences. At the heart of India’s booming economic growth, the coastal metropolis is home to over 21 million people- all looking to fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams. Often called India’s ‘City That Never Sleeps’ and ‘Maximum City’, Mumbai holds the magic of much more than business and finance. From ancient Buddhist caves to the glitz of Bollywood and fashion shows, the city offers a colorful tapestry of sights and sounds that sets it apart from anywhere else in the world.

Why intern in Mumbai?

  • Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is the state capital of Maharashtra and India’s largest city by population with over 21 million people from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. The cosmopolitan city speaks over 16 regional languages with English being widely spoken and understood, and celebrates all major festivals such as Diwali, Christmas and Eid.
  • Known as India’s financial capital, Mumbai is ranked as the world’s 21st wealthiest city, and is home to around 60,000 millionaires and 30 billionaires. Asia’s oldest and the world’s 10th oldest stock exchange, the Bombay Stock Exchange is located here, along with the National Stock Exchange of India. However, the city remains far more affordable than many others with a global cost of living rank of 147.
  • Mumbai’s labor force of about 10 million people is spread across a variety of industries such as multinational business and technical services, medium and small commercial enterprises, manufacturing and more. It is also the premier site of the country’s media, entertainment, advertising and lifestyle industries.
  • Mumbai boasts the country’s best public transport infrastructure. The Mumbai Suburban Railway system carries over 7.5 million passengers daily; India’s largest fleet of public buses operates here; taxis and three-wheeler auto rickshaws are readily available. Among major global cities, Mumbai has the lowest cost of public transport.
  • Mumbai’s history spans millennia with chapters from ancient India when Buddhist monks carved out caves in nearby hills, medieval rivalry and naval battles, colonial conquests and the fight for independence. In the midst of the urban sprawl, Mumbai also houses the biodiversity-rich Sanjay Gandhi National Park, along with being host to unique ecosystems on its marine coast on the Arabian Sea, and 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Mumbai’s Internship Career Fields

As India’s main economic and entertainment hub, the port city shoulders more than 6% of India’s GDP and contributes 30% of income tax collections. The city’s unique mix of industries and entrepreneurial edge make it a magnet for professionals looking to ascend in their chosen career fields.

Aspiring finance professionals will thrive in Mumbai, home to the headquarters of major Indian banks such as the State Bank of India- the country’s largest public sector bank, HDFC Bank- the country’s largest private sector bank, and the Reserve Bank of India, the country’s central banking regulatory authority. The city is also home to major Indian multinational engineering, tech and automobile business conglomerates such as Larsen & Toubro, Tata Group, Reliance Industries, Bajaj Group, Godrej Group, Mahindra Group and more that also operate in industries such as real estate, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. Mumbai houses a large percentage of the country’s creative industries such as entertainment, media, fashion, retail, and advertising, along with a burgeoning startup ecosystem.

    "My internship 100% affected everything – I am doing my dissertation on the luxury market in China. I gained a huge insight working at Christie’s with my primary research being aided by my colleagues from there. If I hadn’t done this internship, I would know which direction to be heading in. I worked at Christie’s Auction House and was directly involved in all aspects of the one of their biannual auctions. Work tasks included implementation of the auction, PR, advertising and being knowledgeable about the works of art, their expected value and the price they actually sold for.”
