Australia: Sydney

Spend eight weeks interning for a company in Sydney. One of the most iconic cities in the world, Sydney is home to a wide variety of businesses in various domestic and international markets. Interns will get a flavor of this vibrant city while building their professional development through project-based internship work.

Interns will work with a team in Sydney and will have frequent engagement with their supervisor and working teams. Interns will also interact frequently with our internship provider, Global Academic Ventures.

During this summer experience, you will apply the theories and concepts you’ve learned in class to a professional international working environment, learning and practicing the customs, behaviors and norms of another culture.

The skills you develop on this internship will transform you as a leader and give you a distinct competitive advantage in the job market. Along with practicing fundamental workplace skills, you will prove that you can work in a diverse environment, adapt to change, be a flexible problem solver and integrate successfully into a diverse and cross-cultural team—all high-demand skills for today’s globally minded employers.

You will work Monday through Friday for eight weeks at your placement company for 30-35 hours per week.
