The UNSW Business School, in partnership with Practera and Study NSW, are offering students the opportunity to work on a 2-week real-world business experience. 

The Global Trade Accelerator program (GTA) connects students with interest or expertise in particular markets to undertake research/analysis projects for NSW exporters through a gamified project learning app.  

Students will act as business consultants to research the implications of COVID-19 for the selected export market and explore associated challenges and opportunities, where possible. Students will be required to commit to 25 hours in total over the 2-week experience. Student teams can meet in person or collaborate completely online to complete the project. 

2022 dates will be released early October 2021 

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

  • Work in a team with other students from UNSW 
  • Respond to a brief provided by a NSW exporter or trade professional 
  • Work with your allocated team to conduct a 2-week market research/market analysis 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.
