The College of Business and Economics (CBE) Internship Program provides students with an opportunity to gain real-world experience in an organisation through a workplace internship of 4 weeks full-time equivalent. The work placement component of the course can be carried out in-person, in hybrid mode or virtually. The placement will make a significant contribution to improving students' employability through a well-designed internship project and reinforces the relationships CBE entertains and engages in with industry partners. The internship project has a strong focus on developing students’ capabilities in terms of their professionalism, teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills. Each intern will show evidence of competencies and skills acquired through close working relationships and collaboration with professional colleagues, a workplace supervisor and academic advisor. The internship program offers industry collaborators the opportunity to co-create value through students’ application of their theoretical knowledge and capabilities developed throughout their programs and get access to ANU talents.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Identify the theoretical knowledge and skills from relevant area(s) of academic study as applicable to the problem identified in the ‘real work’ environment;
  2. Acquire evidence and information from complex sources as relevant to the problem in the “real work” environment;
  3. Determine the appropriate information and evidence relevant to addressing the business problem;
  4. Engage critically with the information and evidence to generate best solutions to the problem and of value in the decision-making by the employer/placement/community;
  5. Engage effectively and professionally with multiple stakeholders within and outside the work/professional environment;
  6. Critically reflect upon the value of lifelong learning processes provided through the internship experience; and
  7. Communicate the knowledge, competencies and experience acquired through the internships to peers, academic, specialist and non-specialist audiences.
