Abstract

In the modern economic scenario all over the world- “Management” – as a stream of education has acquired new dimensions. Summer Internship, which is a supervised practical training undertaken by students is an integral part of management education (John E B and Hendrik H, 2006). Despite the increasing use of internship in B-Schools, there is a dearth of research into the impact of such internship on management students. The research paper aims to elicit the impact of summer internship on management students: what they learnt out of it in terms of acquiring career related skills and how the internship helped them to see a realistic picture of their future career expectations. A sample of 100 management students who have completed 6 weeks summer internship was taken from the city of Ahmedabad. The interns reported a number of significant learning outcomes of which the most significant were time management skills, ability to interact with different kinds of people followed by ability to work independently with greater sense of responsibility. The students believed that learning outcomes would support their future professional development and the internship had prepared them for their first job.
