As the employers declare, during their internships students acquire experiences that make them stronger, more confident in their skills. They also learn about time management, discipline, effective communication and logical and critical thinking. During the period of internship, students see how the theory applies in the real environment. These internships determine students to work together with their colleagues and to improve their working habits, in order to prove that they are capable to occupy a position in that company.
This internship programme has enabled students to observe in detail all the activities that are performed in an economic unit, as well as complexity of these activities, the degree of risk faced by companies, the collaboration relations between companies, as well as many other aspects related to the proper management of a business.  
In addition, such collaborations can contribute to the adaptation of the university curriculum to the requirements of the socio-economic environment, as well as to the development of the skills acquired in the tertiary education by interactive learning in real companies.
