The UNSW Business School, in conjunction with Practera, are offering students the opportunity to work on a 2-week real-world business project. 

The Business Opportunity Accelerator Program connects student teams with real clients to complete a research and insights report to navigate through the challenges of COVID-19. 

Students will analyse the current state of the client’s business, and then research the changes of their customers' needs and habits and identify opportunities to assist the client to overcome the current challenges and grow the business.  

As a student consultant in this program, you'll:  

  • Work in a team with other students from UNSW as business consultants 
  • Respond to a brief provided by a real client 
  • Work with your allocated team to deliver a research and insight report that provides recommendations of how your client can prepare for, navigate and thrive through the challenges of COVID-19. Teams can meet in person or collaborate completely online to complete this project. 
  • Develop real world professional skills 

Please see the table below for Business Experience programs 2021 dates. Students are encouraged to complete more than one business project but will only be able to apply and participate in one project at a time.
