3rd Virtual Internship Programme Kicks Off In ATU

After a successful introduction in 2017, the Virtual Internship Programme (VIP) has entered its 3rd year since commencement with a call to students to uphold good working ethics. The initiative introduced to equip students with practical experience and developmental skills training needed at the corporate world has been at the forefront of the competency training drive.
Speaking at the ceremony to open the 3rd Virtual Internship Programme, founder and CEO of Family Trust Capital, Dr. Adu Amoah Adom highlighted on the need to use knowledge learnt in school to solve problems in society. He appealed to the students to never stop asking questions when they are interning and also strive to equip themselves with the necessary skills and attitudes.
He said that even though there may be challenges as an intern, one will need to overcome them by building their entrepreneurial skills on the job.
On his part, the acting Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Amevi Acakpovi, educated the students on the importance of the Virtual Internship Programme. He urged the students to be disciplined, put up high moral standards and abide by all rules of the companies to which they are assigned.
“The Virtual internship Programme is meant to give students the needed work experience in a virtual environment. Do not see this opportunity as normal school activities, but rather, a hands-on practical experience,” he added.
The Virtual Internship Programme will run for four weeks with more than 200 students estimated to be enlightened.
