Dr Vaidyanathan Jayaraman (Dean – Undergraduate Programs, SP Jain School of Global Management) writes an article in Shiksha, an educational portal, on the importance of internships. He explains how internships help to bridge the gap between learning and finding an occupation that can help students move quickly towards a career objective.
In the article, he talks about the five Vs that students can gain through internships:

He elaborates further: "Internships give students a wonderful platform to establish relationships and acquaintances – your network is your net worth. Building critical professional connections before graduation can be handy when they have to pursue a full-time job after completing their courses."
