Abstract

This paper aims to share the findings and continual improvements made to the curricular structure on industrial practicum training program in the Faculty of Business Management of a local public university based on a study carried out in 2005 – 2006. A total of 103 practicum students (25%) responded to a quantitative survey using a 5-point Likert scale to determine the practicum training effectiveness; followed by in-depth interviews on twelve purposive–selected trainees. Findings showed that the factors that make the industrial practicum training effective were: host organizations, roles of facilitators, roles of trainees and the training-learning curriculum in the practicum. The scope of study encompassed final semester business management students who had completed practicum attachments in various industries from multinational companies, national and local small-medium enterprises. The practical implications of this study resulted in a change of curriculum structure for practicum programs, improved administration and practicum evaluations on the students, and enhanced the universityindustrial linkages.
