The UL’s International Cooperative Placement, a student internship programme, with PPRC has been running for almost a decade. This study examines the nature of communication and engagement processes adopted by the internal stakeholders of UL and PPRC in the light of efficient management. It explores the nature of their relationship and assesses formal and informal communication processes. Key informant interviews supported by secondary data suggest that communication; engagement opportunities and dialogue are extensive. Evidence suggests that internal stakeholder interactions are far-reaching and that barriers to formal and informal communication have not endangered the engagement process. Accordingly, the study concludes that communication among the internal stakeholders is indeed facilitating an effective and efficient management of the programme commending its initiators for their foresight. Since the partnership is laudable, it needs support for its long-term sustainability.
