Abstract: Internships are an increasingly popular element of higher education in business and provide many potential benefits to students. The objective of the study is exploring potential benefit and challenges of internship of undergraduate students who completed their intern from the Faculty of Commerce and Management, Eastern University, Sri Lanka recently in fulfilling the requirements of industrial attachment. The research study employed structured questionnaires for 100 respondents through censes study. The results indicate moderate level of perceived satisfaction from the majority of the students regarding internship programme. Further there is a positive relationship between satisfaction of intern and benefit and a negative relationship between satisfaction of intern and challenges. The overall results indicate the challenges of intern mostly impact on the job satisfaction rather than benefit. Therefore satisfaction of intern is moderate level. These findings can be useful to all the stakeholders studying internship satisfaction and its behavioral implications.
