Subject Options:

COMM391 provides you an opportunity to integrate and apply your university knowledge in an industry context through a 16-day internship with a pre-selected Industry Partner arranged by the Business Internship team in the Faculty of Business. You can expect a lot more than mindless tasks, instead, you will be partnered with an organisation that will provide you with thought-provoking tasks that will help you gain valuable industry related experience and help you become ‘work-ready’. In addition, the application process will prepare you for job hunting post-graduation, by allowing you to make your resume more competitive and experiencing real interview questions.

Want to go on exchange with 40K? The India Immersion – Business Internship – 40K Globe program will provide students with an opportunity to immerse themselves not only in village life in rural India but as an international student within one of the University of Wollongong partnered institutions in Bangalore. The student/s will work closely with the offshore 40K Globe team in setting strategies for the sustainability of the Globe India immersion program and the business’ that it sets up within the villages around Bangalore.
