Prof. V N Rajasekharan Pillai, Vice Chancellor, IGNOU said, "Today, one of the end objectives of most teaching learning transactions is gainful employment in areas of ones own choice and aptitude. IGNOU is acting as a dynamic interface by providing an interactive platform for corporate world on one hand and the learner population on the other side, to facilitate learning. One such initiative has been the country wide launch of an internship program with Max New York Life Insurance Company."

In addition to the rewards and recognition schemes offered by Max New York Life, if an intern recruits three or more agents, he qualifies for a pre placement interview, clearing which he may be absorbed as a permanent employee.
