Industrial training program refers to the experience obtains in the real working environment that has been identified as part of aid to prospective employment. This paper reports the perception of 187 industrial supervisors on the 307 business students’ performance and their employment opportunity during industrial training. The results show that the students’ performances are excellent in the areas punctuality, honesty, teamwork, and relations with colleagues. However, there is a sign of lacking in the job related skills such as the ability to identify and formulate the job problems, efficiency in completing task as well as knowledge of current development related to task/job. In term of employment opportunity is high to medium. As an implication, the equal partnerships between university and employers are crucial to increase students’ employability skills and employment opportunity.
