Assessing the Internship Program in Universities: Case study of United States International University (USIU)

Elsie Opiyo Newa

Abstract


Employers are increasingly supporting programs that equip students with hands-on business skills in an effort to address a gap between theory and practice. This in essence increases the student’s degree of employability after graduating from university.

To address this mismatch, companies and universities have initiated the internship program or attachments where final year students pursuing various professions are given an opportunity to work in an effort to gain some experience and beef up other academic credentials that they may not have acquired in their course of study. 

Key words: Internship, assessment, university, USIU.
