The Global Business Practicum is an opportunity for students to work in an international environment on genuine business issues. Students gain international understanding, exposure and workplace skills through studying and working in an overseas location.
Students are placed in organisations such as local branches of global financial, marketing and technology corporations. Working in small teams as consultants on a genuine business case, students also attend masterclasses by local industry leaders, government officials and academic experts and learn about the local culture by visiting important cultural landmarks.
The UNSW Business School continues to closely monitor the current global COVID-19 pandemic and following the university’s approach to maintain a considered, evidence-based position guided by public health experts and government advice.
At present, we’re continuing with plans for the Global Business Practicum (GBP) where possible. However, should we be unable to travel to the specific GBP location due to continued restrictions - we will deliver a virtual experience in Sydney. This virtual experience will offer remote engagement with your host company to complete projects, cultural activities, networking opportunities and most importantly your progression won’t be impacted. If the virtual experience goes ahead, you will pay a reduced program fee of $150.
