I learn about the working pattern of bank and how it circulates money to help the economy sectors as well. The internship was totally practical implication of all the educational studies which is very helpful in my future career and it also increases my interest in this sector. In future job in banking sector the internship experience is very beneficial for me.
22.214.171.124- Activities of Internship Connected With My Classroom Knowledge:

Simply I realize the classroom provides only the theoretical knowledge but after being the part of organization where its implication is made you can get practical exposure of this.
6.1- Summary of basic conclusions that derived from internship experience:
In my internship experience I observed the working concern of MCB is good. I analysis the MCB very closely and realized the MCB profits are at maintain level although the earning can be increased by supporting the advertisement of their products. The MCB have to give attention of command style in management because it’s very essential for maintain its position MCB have to set its higher standard of achievement .The MCB have great part in the economic growth of Pakistan through its policies that are balanced and technical oriented product and services that bank offered through its branches at local and international level. The management of MCB has to specifically focus on its function so that they create the products that customer demand.
After when I make the financial analysis with other banks I can conclude the MCB is somehow better than other banks its profit is increasing from pervious years.it has to perform well.
6.2- overall observation about the sector in which my internship organization operates:
The general conclusion about MCB was there is lack of planning in task and sometime employees didn’t work on time especially in Advance department the lot of work had been pending on employee and at branch level the resources was miss utilized like usage of telephone and computer for personal usage.
If MCB support its aggressive investment and strengthen capital it leads over its rivals. MCB delivering a vast range of products to its customers like online banking, banking through phone, ATM and lot more that depict how much MCB concern with its customers. MCB have higher market value which depict the bank is largest lend in the market so it should expand its business internationally and nationally and it should also expand its staff because it helps in trade financing, management of remittances and also operation of banking through banking. Bank provides a wide range of Jobs opportunities to fresh graduators. Basic functions that bank performs are Deposits Acceptance, Loans and credit providing to customers, issuance of letter of credit and also facilitates the importers and exporters, remittance, providing the locker facility to customers also deals with negotiable mechanisms and money investment.
6.3-STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES OPPORTUNITIES THREATS (SWOT) ANALYSIS
The MCB have following strengths:
‘ MCB enjoying the experience of 55 years and operate profitably that’s why MCB is well establish bank.
‘ MCB is very first Pakistani privatized bank.
‘ In financial market due to its performance and efficient management in quality. product and services innovation and marketing.
‘ In the banking market the MCB has good reputation.
‘ Strong and attractive product is one f great strength.
‘ MCB have flexibility to adopt the changes according to environment.
‘ Have huge concerns on customization.
‘ Oriented and professionals of MCB can change the whole system.
‘ MCB have low motivational level for employees and organizational culture is also lower than desired.
‘ Due to improper reward system mostly employees in the organization are dissatisfied.
‘ High level of employee turnover is also cause of MCB weakness.
‘ MCB all branches are technological advanced but still some branches need that technology because the technological improvement in that is really slow.
‘ Employees especially in credit department have to work extra hours complete the task due to high workload.
‘ If the authority is given to professional employees in their duties performing the MCB position can be more highlighted.
‘ Continuously adopting the technological changes will improve customer services.
‘ The business activities in Pakistan is increasing continuously and investors launch various type of mega project related to textile and housing MCB can invest such type of projects in profitable term.
‘ The SBP reviewed its policy related to interest rate and linked it with KIBOR rates which cause to increase bank profit through increasing its interest rate.
‘ Different private bank with strong profits became the threat for MCB like UBL, HBL
‘ The instability of Pakistan’s economy and political condition from last few year become the threat for MCB.
‘ In the consumer financing field the foreign banks like Citi Bank etc are great threat for MCB.
‘ The inflation rate of Pakistan was almost 10% which is unfavorable for bank.
I would like to add some recommendation that would help the bank to sustain its competitive position and move on efficiently and effectively.it was analyze that bank have to increased its employees because the employees have too much working load and they worked at late night that affect their efficiency so the bank should hired the new employees that reduce the work load.
Mostly MCB have no concept of job rotation normally employees work only a specific task again and again and become specialist only in that. The employees should be assign jobs just for specific period of time after that they should be transfer to other department it helps the employees to gain knowledge of different departments. Bank should advertise properly and communicate its product and services to customers so that it can strongly appeal the customers. The management of MCB has to revise the pay scale and should also offer various incentives to its employees. The proper training should be given to IT skilled person so that the technical drawback can be overcome. All the administrative issues can be resolved through strict control. In every year bank should sent some of its employees to other countries so training purpose and different branches employees should be sent to head office for more learning of them. The bank must provide the opportunities to its employees to participate in workshops and seminars related to banking sector. Bank should provide the incentives for conflicts removal among lower to top management. After the MCB bank privatization the bank is performing well its deposit increasing continuously and the controlling body of bank is responsible for banks performance productivity.
