Why Internship Is An Important Part Of A Management Program?

In the world of management education today, an internship forms an integral part of its core curriculum. This is because it is a great way to get involved in the real corporate world and increase one’s practical knowledge to become an industry-ready professional. And wherever management education focuses mainly on imparting theoretical knowledge with zero hands-on experience, that creates MBA/PGDM graduates who do not possess any practical knowledge and hence are not readily accepted in the corporate world.

Understanding this scenario, Asian Business School (ABS) includes an intensive, paid, multiple internship opportunity – both, national & international – in its curriculum for every student that gives them a unique experience and exposure of the corporate world and an excellent ‘on-the-job-learning’ opportunity. Thus, this internship experience greatly enhances the workplace skills of ABS PGDM students and gives them an edge over other college students in the placement drives.

Read below to further understand the highlights of the internship program by Asian Business School:

  1. Intensive Training for a well-defined period:

Asian Business School includes a well-defined 6-8 weeks’ intensive summer internship opportunity in its curriculum for each student. The main aim of this internship is to provide students with ‘on-the-job-learning’ and teach them to apply concepts learned in the classroom to the real world. Moreover, this well-defined 6-8 weeks’ internship give the students ample time to get into a regular work routine and become familiar with the work culture and environment.

  1. Get paid while you learn:

Internships in the management world are likely to be unpaid or less paid. Such internships do nothing to benefit the student or his career. In contrast, taking up a paid internship implies that both the intern and the company are serious about each other. Here, the intern is committed to learning the industry basics while the company is serious about training them.

Understanding these dynamics, Asian Business School offers a paid internship program with 300+ companies that invest in the student’s learning and churns out an industry-ready professional. ABS students, on the other hand, work hard to enhance their skill set and not just their resumes.

  1. Get an edge in the Job Market:

An internship in the corporate sector grants the management student to be more marketable and stand out to the potential employers. The students who have completed the ABS Internship Program gain an edge over other candidates in the placement drives since they require less training and can handle more responsibilities. In fact, these students gain a higher starting salary than those who do not have internship experience.

  1. Develop Workplace Skills:

The hands-on work experience that a student gains through an internship provided by Asian Business School is invaluable and can never be obtained in a classroom. The internship deepens the ABS students’ understanding of the curriculum and helps them adjust better to the real-time case studies and projects. Apart from learning the specialized skills of the management world, soft skills such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving and leadership are also obtained in an internship, thus, making them industry-ready.

  1. Get Pre-Placement Offer:

Today, companies are often looking for interns who have the talent and potential to turn into fruitful employees and contribute to the overall success of the organization. During the ABS Internship program, the intern is exposed to professionals and hiring decision makers who are constantly judging his performance. As such, the intern has the opportunity to turn the internship into a full-time job opportunity by living up to the performance expectations of the organization. Likewise, since companies have already invested so much into training these interns, they tend to hire as full-time employees.

Therefore, the internship program by Asian Business School focuses on the complete growth of a student into an industry-ready professional that gives them an edge over other college students in the placement drives.
